Police in Dubai have started using Ferrari FV sports cars to chase criminals.
The United Arab Emirates city's police force – which recently unveiled Lamborghini Aventadors for its officers to use – have been given the marked squad cars to use as part of its patrol fleet in an attempt to deter owners of similar high-powered supercars from breaking the speed limit.
Police chief Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim told GulfBusiness.com: "Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet.
"We have been pleasantly surprised by the reaction of people to the Lamborghini, so we said a Ferrari would be a good choice too." The force's fleet includes Chevrolet Camaro SS, Dodge Charger and BMW 5-Series motorcars.
