BMW i8 is the latest addition to Dubai Police’s luxury taskforce collection.

The vehicle, which can go from 0 to 100kph in 4.4 seconds, has a top speed of 256kph.

It was shown on Wednesday at a Dubai Police event, where a number of Major Generals and Police Force members were present.

Major General Khamis Al Muzeina, Dubai’s police chief, who test drove the car, says that through this fleet, the Dubai Police aims at enhancing its law enforcement presence at significant touristic attractions such as the Burj Khalifa, Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, and Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR).

Using the latest technology and vehicles, he said, will bring Dubai’s forces to the highest global standards in terms of security.

Al Muzeina added that the luxurious fleet promotes Dubai Police’s public image and encourages the community to interact with them.

The local forces said the BMW i8 helps them achieve their goal of becoming more environmentally-friendly.

The plug-in hybrid, which has a 362 horsepower, is the first eco-friendly version in supercar history.

Among the Dubai Police supercar collection is a Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Bugatti.
