Exotic cars are nice, but when you need to exhibit real authority only American muscle will do.
The Dubai Police department has added a Chevrolet Camaro to its growing fleet of high performance police cars. The Camaro SS coupe was supplied to the force by the local Chevy dealer, Al Ghandi Auto.
It may be the only police car in town (or the world, for that matter) with a red leather interior, as its original white over red color scheme has been retained under the green decals of the Dubai Police and a roof-mounted light bar.
Last week, Dubai unveiled its new Lamborghini Aventador patrol car, which wasn’t picked up for its speed as much as its flamboyance. The force looking to reflect the uniqueness and extravagance of the Emirate it serves.
While the Lamborghini retails for about $400,000 in Dubai, Camaros go for just $40,000, so they can definitely fill up the fleet with them for a lot less.
Not that money is an issue.
In addition to these two hot wheels, the police are planning the addition of an unspecified Ferrari model expected to cost upwards of $550,000.
With all of these flashy cars in the parking lot, the Dubai Police might want to think about hiring some extra security.
