Dubai Of The Century

Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan is not known for his smiling.

But if this doesn’t make him smile, nothing will.

dubai carPolice in Dubai are putting British panda cars – and Gene Hunt’s Ford Cortina – in the shade by adding a £350,000 Lamborghini to their fleet.

The sports car capable of speeds up to 217mph is being introduced in the oil-rich emirate as part of an extravagant overhaul of police vehicles.

The Lamborghini Aventador, decorated in the Dubai force’s green and white colours, is thought to be the most expensive police car in the world.

But they are unlikely to risk using it in car chases, instead using it mainly for show in popular tourist areas.

Deputy police director Gen Khamis Matter al-Muzaina boasted the Italian-built Lamborghini would illustrate ‘how classy Dubai is’.

The latest Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster marque was launched earlier this year to mark Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary.
