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.
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.
