Dubai police love their luxury

2013-11-07 08:51
Dubai - With a $2.5m (R25m) Bugatti Veyron and a nearly $550 000 (R5.6m) Lamborghini Aventador already patrolling the streets, Dubai police have decided to expand their luxury spending-spree by adding a custom-made Mercedes Brabus SUV to its fleet.

Despite the vehicle's off-roading capabilities, the Brabus B63-S 700 Widestar will be dispatched to tourist areas. Quoted by the United Arab Emirates-backed newspaper The National on Wednesday, Dubai Police fleet director Col. Nabil Al-Redha says the vehicles are "a good advertisement" for the city and its police force.

The Brabus joins a glitzy fleet of cars that include an Aston Martin One-77, a Ferrari FF, a Bentley Continental GT and two Audi R8s - all painted in green-and-white colors of the Dubai force.

The vehicles are on display this week at the Dubai International Motor Show.
