    Dubai Police adds a Bugatti Veyron to its fleet.

    Hope it's not a repost.

    Amazing! Smiley

    So, no Veyron, but a One-77? What a silly publicity stunt. 


    Re: Dubai Police adds a Bugatti Veyron to its fleet.

    this is rediculous IMO

    Crazy, but not improbable..

    I must have missed the rationale for the Dubai police's acquiring these cars. If there is one, would someone kindly summarize it?

    Here in the US, after police car finish their duty cycle (3 years? Mileage limit?), they are auctioned off, and typically bought by cab companies that retrofit them for taxi service. 

    So I'm going to visit Dubai in a couple of years, and try to hail a cab...Perhaps I will get into a beat-up Veyron driven by an expat from the Indian subcontinent...

    Don't the Italian police have a few Lamborghini's in their fleet of Highway Patrol vehicles?

    This is to a large extend a publicity stunt, but at least the Aventador is out on the streets. Good or bad I will leave to be decided, but no doubt they could not have bought the "airtime" for the money they have paid for the cars.

    Heist:

    I'm not so sure anymore. They had two Gallardo, one crashed and the other one was used mainly for representation/PR purposes only, for example as part of a presidential convoi, etc..

    Early this year, I think I read somewhere that the second Gallardo has been decomissioned because it was too expensive to maintain but I'm not sure if this is true.

    Maybe some of our italian friends can shed some light into it.

    Interesting: I have always wondered why German police doesn't use Porsche anymore (Autobahn Polizei) but apparently it is cheaper (and much more stealth) to use powerful BMW 5, Audi A6 and Mercedes E-class. Don't even think about M GmbH, RS or AMG models...usually some powerful Diesel models, nothing really fancy. These cars are usually stealth (no markings) and have video recording devices onboard, so they can nail you on the spot. If you get away...well...they have you on video. So they don't care. It just gets more difficult to convict since German law allows punishing the driver only, even if the car owner can be punished too (but in a different way, they cannot take his driver license or give him points on the license). So if the driver cannot be identified, things get complicated.
