Dubai impresses tourists with £360,000 Lamborghini police car

The Dubai police force has unveiled the newest and most impressive addition to its fleet of patrol cars. They'll now be patrolling in a Lamborghini Aventador. The so-called super car can achieve speeds of 217 mph and accelerate 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds.

The police showed off the new car, which has been designed to their specifications, via Twitter. On Wednesday they posted a picture on the site showing the car parked outside the giant Dubai Mall along with the words "latest #Dubai_Police patrols, now at your service." The news caused a stir on the social media site with the message being retweeted over 400 times and on Thursday more pictures were released.

The car, which costs approximately £359,000 per vehicle, has divided opinion. Those in favour have suggested that Dubai's status as a playground for the rich and famous means Dubai police need a vehicle that can keep up with the state's now commonplace sports cars.

However, critics have hinted that the sleek green and white vehicle is more likely to provide amusement and photo-opportunities for those on holiday in Dubai than be used to chase rich boy racers on desert motorways. Suspicions over the motives of the pricey addition seemed founded when General Khamis Mattter al-Muzaina, the deputy police director, explained the Lamborghini was to help show "how classy Dubai is."

Although Dubai is the first police force to add the Aventador to it's fleet; sporty super-cars are no novelty in law enforcement. Lamborghinis feature in the forces of Qatar and Italy, while Columbian cops try to catch criminals in a Ferrari. The Aventador joins a 157 mph Chevrolet Camero SS which is already on duty in Dubai.
