Images have been released this week of the new Ferrari police cars that will become the latest addition to Dubai Police's fleet. The news of the new supercar fleet has been announced just days after Dubai Police’s Lamborghini fleet was unveiled.
The new Ferrari FF’s, worth at least $500,000, will join Dubai Police’s supercar fleet this month. Both the Ferraris and the Lamborghinis have been introduced to deter people from speeding and to give the police an advantage when chasing suspects and criminals. The new fleet will also be used to help promote tourism in Dubai.
A tweet on Dubai Police’s official twitter page written on Thursday read “Ferrari joins #Dubai_Police patrol fleet” and included three images of the new police car. The new three door, four-wheel drive cop cars will be able to reach top speeds of 335kmph and are capable of accelerating from zero to 100kmph in just 3.7 seconds.
"Ferrari cars will be equipped with the latest technology needed by the police to control road movement and ensure safety and security on Dubai roads," said lieutenant-general Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, commander-in-chief of the Dubai Police. "The new addition of the Ferraris to its fleet will enhance the patrolling abilities of the Dubai Police, which will be able to keep a tab and control on those driving on high speed."
Images released of the new police Ferrari FF’s by Dubai Police have been photoshoped to give the public an idea of what the new cars will look like. The green and white cars will have the Dubai Police’s logo and name clearly marked on both sides of the car as well as the front and back, along with Dubai Police’s emergency number.
