Dubai is a place of huge contrasts. Ultra-modern and luxurious on the one hand and traditional and peasant-style on the other. So have you ever wondered what the cops would use to chase you if they wanted to pull you over for speeding?

You probably haven’t wondered. But my brain goes off in these directions sometimes.

Dubai being a place of such opposites, what would you see if you heard a siren and looked in your rearview mirror? Are you going to see a galloping camel behind you? Well no, you’re more likely to see a Bugatti. Or maybe an Aston Martin. Or perhaps a common-or-garden Jaguar. See the list further down the page.

The Dubai cops have the fastest police car in the world. At 253 mph, the Bugatti Veyron has been accredited by the Guiness Book of Records as being the fastest ever cop car.

This elite fleet is a great promotion for Dubai and also for the supercar manufacturers who see it as a feather in their caps if they have one of their cars purring along patrolling protecting the public. (Couldn’t resist the alliteration. Sorry).

The Dubai police authorities are also keen to keep up to date with the mood of society. Many of the police drivers are women and it does seem strange to see them in their traditionally-styled police uniforms razzing in a Maserati. The police authorities also use electric and hybrid vehicles, aiming to increase their numbers.

The word is that shortly they will also be introducing hoverbikes to their fleet. These are flying motorbikes. Honestly.
