Dubai Police adds Maserati GranTurismo to supercar fleet

Dubai Police already has one of the world's most advanced patrol fleets – and now it's added a Maserati GranTurismo.

The sports car can do speeds of up to 300km/h with its 4.7 litre V8 engine, enabling officers to swoop in.

Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said the new vehicle will help to increase security in key tourist hotspots including Jumeirah Beach Residence and Burj Khalifa.

The Dubai Police patrol fleet already features everything from the 267mph Bugatti Veyron to the ultra-luxe Bentley Continental.

And last year "the most advanced police vehicle in the world" known as the Beast Patrol was added, along with a Lamborghini patrol vehicle worth one million dirhams.

The Aventador, which can race from 0 to 100kph in fewer than three seconds, joined the fleet in May.

It’s a collection of super cars that crime-fighting forces around the world have long looked at with envy.
