Whether you’re a muscle car, supercar or JDM fan, yesterday’s Cars and Coffee at Prestige BMW of Ramsey showed that car guys (and girls), no matter what they drive, can come together and enjoy other people’s rides. Personally, I’m a sucker for older JDM cars (one of my favorites is the R33 Skyline) and late 80s-early 90s American Muscle, but what really got me excited were the pre-2005 BMW’s that were there, especially the 850CSi and the collection of M Coupes. What was your favorite car at the show?
At some point or another in our lives, we’ve all wanted to drive a Ford Crown Victoria or Dodge Charger police car, just to see what it’s like to be behind the wheel of a police cruiser. Things are a little different in the United Arab Emirates, more specifically, in Dubai – where they get to patrol tourist areas in their choice of several 600+ horsepower police cars.
Supercars in Dubai’s police fleet include a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, a Ferrari FF, a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, a Bentley Continental GT, a limited-edition Aston Martin One-77, a BMW M6 Gran Coupe, a Brabus G63 AMG, a Bugatti Veyron, an Audi R8, a McLaren MP4-12C, a Lexus RC-F, a BMW i8 and the list goes on. Enjoy our photo gallery of just a few select vehicles of the Dubai Police.
Check out the below video from the Dubai Police and listen to the grunts, growls and grumbles of their fleet.
Several cars these days can hit 200 mph — no problem. Look at the Corvette ZR1, any Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and others and you’ll see. But when you throw ice into the equation, it’s a different story. Nokian Tires threw some winter treads onto an Audi RS6, brought to an ice track and launched — all the way to 209 miles an hour. Check out the video below for some record-breaking driving.
