Ferrari FF Shows in Dubai Police Patrol Car

Following last week's announcement of a Lamborghini being added to the Dubai police patrol fleet, another fast and furious motor will be added to the fleet.

Ferrari sports cars will be the police's new wheels, Dubai police head Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan said on Monday.

"Dubai is a unique city and everything in it should reflect its uniqueness and for that reason police will add a Ferrari sports car to its patrol fleet," Khalfan said, according to local UAE news reports.

The sports car will be used to keep order on the streets in high-end locations such as the area surrounding Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper.

Khalfan said "Dubai Police are working on updating the police patrol cars to enhance security on the roads in accordance with highest international standards and technical developments."

He added that the Dubai Police is one of the few police forces in the world fortunate enough to have such cars in its security patrol service.

Khalfan commented on the mixed reaction from the public following the addition of the Lamborghini last week. He said "these cars will not be roaring and chasing speeding motorists, they will be used for road security in different areas of Dubai."

Other sports cars in the Dubai Police patrol fleet include Chevy Camaro sports cars, which can often be seen on busy highways.

The earlier tweet simply read: "Lt General Dhahi Khalfan: Soon Ferrari will join Dubai Police fleet."

From the images released, it appears to be the super exclusive FF, sporting a powerful V12 engine.

The FF, which retails for approximately Dh900,000, goes from 0 to 100km in a mere 3.7 seconds.

This was added to the Chevrolet Camaro, which was confirmed last month by the authority, with images of its two-door prototype also being released online.

In a statement, Dubai Police has confirmed it will soon introduce sports cars into its fleet to enhance its patrolling abilities.

Lieutenant-General Dhahi Khalfan, in the presence of Major-General Abdul Rahman Mohammad Rafi, Director-General, Department of Community Service, and Brigadier Pilot Anas Al Matrooshi, Deputy Director of the General Department of Operations for Transport and Rescue, are reviewing the new cars.

The sports cars have been designed according to Dubai Police specifications and 'will help to facilitate policing on highways', according to the authorities.

News of the Ferrari had many on Twitter cheering the new addition to the Dubai Police family, with tweets such as this one from Stranger Buddy saying: "Wow, I assume it will be a world record to have Ferrari for police patrolling. Keep it up. Dubai deserves the best."

Don Joe Martin wrote: "Dubai Police is going to increase the standard of policing the world over. I love Dubai."

Kaveen Amarasinghe posed the question that's currently on everyone's mind, asking: "Dubai Police, just curious to know if these cars will be used for patrolling purpose or anything else?"

Only time will tell. But needless to say, the emirate's patrolling fleet looks poised to set a world record for being number one in style stakes.
