    Dubai: The city that boasts the world's tallest building is equipping its police with $400,000 Lamborghini sports cars that Dubai's deputy police chief says are in keeping with the Gulf capital's image.

    They also go fast, since according to the website of Lamborghini, an affiliate of the Volkswagen Group, all the Italian company's cars reach 100 kph (60 mph) in well under six seconds.

    Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina said that a fleet of Lamborghinis, each estimated to cost around $400,000, had been obtained by the Dubai police for use at main tourist sites.

    "The aim is to reflect the reputation of the emirate and the high stature it achieved," Mazeina said.

    "It will also help promote tourism and showcase the security role the Dubai police plays in safeguarding the city," he added.

    The vehicles will be deployed at the downtown area near the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa tower, the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard as well as the cafe- and restaurant-lined walk of the Jumeirah Beach Residence, one of the most popular waterfront developments in Dubai.

    Photos of the vehicles published in local media in the United Arab Emirates showed a green-and-white vehicle decorated with the Dubai police insignia on the front hood.

    Dubai, one of seven emirates in the UAE federation, is staging a recovery from the financial crisis it suffered during the global financial crisis in 2009. The emirate recently has announced several major projects, including a huge tourism and retail development with the largest shopping mall in the world.

    Looks like this is from Poland. Not sure.

    Anyway, I hope the Dubai cops don't end up thinking every day is a Speed day!

    Note: Speed here refers to the movie "Speed."

    This is Italian police. And they have "Alfa-Romeo" cars as their standard car.

    After Lamborghini, Dubai cops to have Ferrari car

    Dubai: Cash-rich Dubai police on Wednesday unveiled its latest acquisition, a Ferrari luxury sports car, to enhance its patrolling abilities, just a week after adding Lamborghini to its fleet of vehicles.

    The department made the announcement via Twitter. "Ferrari joins # Dubai_Police patrol fleet," the police tweeted. The twitter page also had an online link to the picture of the car.

    "Ferrari cars will be equipped with the latest technology needed by the police to control road movement and ensure safety and security on Dubai roads," Lt-General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police was quoted as saying by UAE-based Khaleej Times.

    "The new addition of the Ferraris to its fleet will enhance the patrolling abilities of the Dubai Police, which will be able to keep a tab and control on those driving on high speed," he added.

    Just last week, the department had unveiled a $500,000 Lamborghini to join its current fleet of Toyota Land Cruiser and the Kia Mohave.
