The fastest police car is in the world

At 407 kms per hour, the fastest police car is in Dubai

Dubai is now officially home to the fastest police car in the world. That's right.

The Bugatti Veyron, a luxury supercar which is part of the Dubai police's fleet of patrol cars, has been officially certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the "fastest police car in service," according to a report published in NDTV.

The sports car, which costs approximately 10.5 crore rupees, has a top speed of 407 kilometres per hour. Its 16-cylinder engine produces 1,000 horsepower and the car can go from 0 to 97 kilometres per hour in just 2.5 seconds. Oh, and it is only one of 14 supercars that are part of the Dubai police's "super fleet", says the report in NDTV.

Dubai police bought the Bugatti Veyron in April 2016. The Guinness World Records website notes that the Veyron is the second fastest street-legal car in the world, only after the Hennessey Venom GT, which has a top speed of 427 kilometres per hour.

Dubai police added the Bugatti Veyron to its fleet primarily to increase the visibility of its police force in touristy areas. So rather than high-speed chases, the supercars are more likely to attract attention from tourists and locals alike at hotspots like the Burj Khalifa Tower and the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, reports NDTV.

The cars allow the city's police force to be more accessible, Dubai police Lt. Saif Sultan Rashed Al Shamsi tells Gulf News. "One of the funny stories we have is that a lot of tourists and people here call the Dubai police...on (the emergency number) 999 to ask about these cars. They want to know which location they will be in and how they can find them and take pictures with them."
