Dubai’s Fastest Police Force

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.

 

Mercedes G63 6×6: Luxuriously Rugged

When you thought you’ve seen it all, Mercedes has done it again. Do you ever wish you had the ruggedness of a Jeep and the luxury of a high end SUV in the same vehicle? Mercedes brings you the G63 6×6, not 4-wheel drive, but a 6-wheel drive beast! SUV’s with 6-wheel-drive have been around for years but have been used for military or commercial use. Now, its time to bring it to the public!

The AMG engineers at Mercedes-Benz have taken the drivetrain from the G63 AMG, sporting a 5.5-liter, twin-turbo V-8 cranking out 536 hp, mated to a seven-speed transmission. This monster weighs in at 8,300-lb. and is still able to get up to 60 mph in about six seconds. Inside, there’s room for four passengers to ride in luxury, with white leather seats, a carbon-fiber accented dash and a bamboo-lined cargo area.

AMG splits the torque 30/40/30 among the axles from front to rear for maximum traction, with locking differentials for all 37-inch wheels; the 6×6 can go in water more than three feet deep. When in the desert, the tires can be inflated and deflated from a panel in the cabin.

Mercedes plans to build about 20 to 30 of these SUV’s starting in October for a price just below $457,000 — which is what AMG will charge for an all-electric SLS. This will definitely be some sight to see on the road. Watch the video below showing off this 6×6 beast.
