Dubai Police Force Vehicle Fleet 2015

Dubai is grandiose and flashy. It is home to the tallest buildings in the world, the biggest malls and recently home to the most expensive ice cream scoop ($815) in the world. The Dubai Police Force makes no exception. Whether it be a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Aston Martin or more, the Dubai police fleet is not letting cost factors rule their choices. This is the 2015 DPF Vehicle Fleet:

Chevy Camaro

Chevy Camaro is not just about factors like V8 engine which produces almost 426 horsepower, but also about an exhilarating performance, a beautiful styled body and a high tech cockpit behind the wheels.

Mercedes Benz SLG AMG

This $200,000 car which magically rises from 0 to 60MPH all within a miniscule 4 seconds is royalty personified. Its other features like 6.2-liter V-8 which produces 583 horsepower coupled with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

Lamborghini Aventador

According to the deputy police director of  the Dubai fleet, this super car was supposed to project the classy side of the Dubai fleet. This mean machine which can accelerate from 0-62MPH all within a miniscule 2.9 seconds makes it the most formidable proposition on all types of terrain. Its features such as 7 speed ISR gearbox and its shifting time of 50 milliseconds enables its supercharged engine achieve these numbers.

Ferrari FF

This car purchased for the dynamic female officers of the Dubai police fleet perfectly matches the aerodynamic constraints with the design rules. The FF cabin which exudes a world of elegance, allure and sophistication has four generous body hugging seats which let all the four occupants enjoy the same level of comfort.

Bentley Continental GT

This 2013 model care meant for the luckiest of all cops is priced between $175,000 and $215,000.  Its curvy, sculpted steering instantly connects the driver with the car and creates a lifetime bond. Its innovative variable displacement system creates fewer emissions and is considered most suitable for the conscientious Dubai Police fleet.

Aston Martin One 77

Priced at a whopping $1.79Million, this car is one of the 77 cars produced by this esteemed club. Its breathtaking interiors include a leather trimmed sports steering wheel, electrically adjustable lightweight memory seats, trip computers, optional front/rear parking cameras, LED map reading touch sensitive lights and automatic temperature control. Its two door, two seat coupe allows the cops to chase with elegance and speed along the mighty Dubai roads and pathways

Chevrolet Lumina

Although more humble than all the super cars listed above, this car is nevertheless no means an inferior force to reckon with. With its reliable engine, it promises no luxuries, but comes with zero maintenance. With its readily available and inexpensive parts, it enables the cops to patrol along unfamiliar roads and territories.

As one police officer pointed out, these cars are not used for car chases but used for patrolling in tourist areas. In the eyes of the tourist, Dubai is the city of the super cops with super cars who would leave no stone upturned to ensure the safety of the tourists and residents.

Picture

Surely, it is a very common occurence in the Uae, that cars will get stuck in the sand every now and then given the abundance of sand in the desert.
So what do you do when this happens? I have read from and spoken to some ‘experts’ and I will share with you a few tips and tricks.

  • Remain Calm. This is important. Do not panick and try to accelerate the car out of the situation. The more you try, the worse it gets really.
  • Step out of the vehicle, observe the condition and situation of all the tires. This helps you to properly access the next step.
  • It is advisable that you then go on and deflate all the tires; however, only about half way. We still need some air air in them for the rescue mission to work. This step is very important, it gives the tires traction
  • Now you can slowly start to accelerate and surely you will see your car move…Slowly, but Surely. Patience is key at this point
  • If all else fails, you could always do yourself some good and call Emergency numbers:
  • Dubai Police: 04 229 2222/ Abu Dhabi Police: 999

There you have it guys, and if for any reason you feel the need to get another vehicle entirely, just download the used cars in uae app. You are always one click away from owning one.
