As a V8 Mercedes-Benz SLS moved out of the plane and onto Milan’s streets, bystanders wondered why a Dubai Police car had come in Italy.
The 315kph sports vehicle took part in the legendary Mille Miglia race from Brescia to Rome on June 16 to commemorate the UAE’s staging of a similar vintage car Emirates tour in December. The AMG supercar is part of Dubai’s growing fleet of premium vehicles used by traffic officers to break down boundaries and connect with the public.
The Top Ten Dubai Police Supercars
Dubai Police supercars in white and green are frequently seen at national events such as the Dubai Marathon, the UAE Cycle Tour, and various parades and festivities. Dubai Police wants to increase their storage of luxury automobiles due to public interaction. Here is a list of the top 10 most eye-catching.
1. Mercedes-AMG GT63 S
This V8 twin-turbocharged beast surely makes its presence felt when it fires up. Its nine-speed automated transmission and AMG-tuned all-wheel-drive system allow it to reach 100kph in only 3 seconds. It will cost you a whopping $161,000. (Dh592,000).
2. Maserati GranTurismo
This Italian classic allows traffic officers to cruise Dubai’s streets in flair and comfort. The four-door coupé set a record for the quickest car to enter automotive production.
The first GranTurismo rolled off the production line in northern Italy just nine months after designers sketched up their concepts. The Dubai Police model, one of only 28,805 vehicles made, is guaranteed to become a classic.
3. Toyota GR Supra 2021
The GR Supra, which was introduced this year, is the most recent addition to the Dubai Police fleet.
Toyota describes the car as having a “powerful but pure” driving experience, and it can reach 100kph in 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 250kph. This Japanese-made thoroughbred is one of the cheapest police cars, costing about $43,000 (Dh158,000).
4. Bugatti Veyron
This supercar, described by some as the crown treasure of the Dubai Police fleet, was designed in Germany but manufactured in France.
Its blistering maximum speed of 407kph makes it the fleet’s fastest vehicle, and the BBC driving program Maximum Gear named it the car of the decade.

Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport is one of the world’s fastest street-legal production vehicles, with a top speed of 431 kph. This hulking sports car is also one of the most valuable, valued at approximately $2 million (Dh7.3 million).
5. Mercedes-Benz G 63
The “G Wagon” has become a common sight on the roadways of the emirate, and in 2020, Dubai Police launched a number of these twin-turbocharged vehicles.
Despite its $200,000 (Dh735,000) price tag, it is one of the most desirable SUVs on the market. The 4-liter V8 beast appears to be ready for action on and off the road.
6. Aston Martin One-77
This limited edition model, another design classic, is priced at the upper end of the Dubai Police budget. Fewer than seventy-seven examples of this automobile, manufactured in the United Kingdom by a company synonymous with James Bond, have been produced, so it is destined to become a classic automobile.
To produce the exclusive One-77, Aston Martin created a dedicated factory staffed by 27 of the company’s finest engineers. The price of the 7.3-liter V12 supercar is a chilly $1.8 million (Dh6.6 million).
7. Lamborghini Aventador
The V12-powered Aventador, named after a Spanish combat bull, was initially limited to 4,000 units. Dubai Police snatched up one of the vehicles and painted it green and white.
Each of the eight carbon-fiber molds that were used to construct the sleek bodywork was limited to 500 units. A 2021 coupe model sells for approximately Dh1.9 million in Dubai.
8. Bentley Continental GT
The Bentley Continental is another cruiser within the Dubai Police fleet. The GT has been manufactured since 2003 and exudes a sense of sophistication. When Bentley released the factory process to Volkswagen in 1998, it was the first Bentley to utilize mass production techniques.
A massive six-liter engine and a maximum speed of 318kph guarantee that police will arrive at their destinations in style and on time.
9. BMW i8
The BMW i8, a plug-in hybrid sports car, has been added to Dubai Police’s expanding electrified fleet as a nod to the future. It debuted in Germany in 2014, and production of the roadster utilized in Dubai ended in 2020.
Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 kilometers per hour, but its range on a single electric charge is only 37 kilometers, leaving it severely dependent on traditional fuel.
10. McLaren MP4-12C
The carbon fiber automobile was the first road vehicle produced by a British manufacturer since 1992 and has been at the discretion of Dubai Police since 2013.
It is not as quick as other vehicles in the authority’s garage, but its twin-turbocharged V8 engine gives it a maximum speed of approximately 200 kilometers per hour on the open road.
