Crime-fighting: Dubai Police shows of fleet with new Maserati
Police in Dubai has unveiled the latest supercar to join their crime-fighting fleet – a Maserati GranTurismo.
The £82,000 high-speed car will serve the force in the oil-rich city alongside a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari FF, and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
In November they said they were training in the use of flying motorbikes which could be deployed to the streets as soon as 2020 and travel up to 60mph.
Maj. Gen Al Marri said using sports cars as patrol vehicles is part of the Dubai Police’s strategy of bolstering security presence in tourist destinations, such as the Burj Khalifa, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard and Jumeirah Beach Residence.
Lt. Col Al Kutbi said the sports coupe would be stationed in different tourist spots and landmark areas across the emirate.
