Dubai police adds Bugatti Veyron to its fleet

The Dubai police force has added yet another incredible supercar to its fleet and this time it’s a Bugatti Veyron.

Dubai Police Chief Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, an outspoken lieutenant general, tweeted a picture of the $1.4 million car, which boasts a beastly 1,001-horsepower engine.

The Veyron is the most expensive in a fleet that already includes two Ferrari FFs, a Bentley Continental GT, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Mercedes SLS and an Aston Martin One.

The Bugatti Veyron carries a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph) and was named “Car of the Decade” (2000–2009) by the BBC television show “Top Gear.”

Dubai’s maximum speed limit is capped at 75 miles per hour, with strict penalties for excesses. The city’s police have warned motorists not to be distracted by the vehicles on the road and not to take pictures while driving.

The supercar team is tasked with patrolling tourist spots around the area of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Police hope that the fleet will help in Dubai’s bid to secure the right to host Expo 2020.
