A job with Abu Dhabi and Dubai Police is an offer no petrolhead can refuse, thanks largely to the supercar portfolio of the law enforcement agencies. The cop cars of Dubai come with a white and dark green colour scheme while Abu Dhabi police car fleet shines in white and red. The UAE police force has world's biggest supercar fleet.
The exotic supercar list of UAE Police includes the rare Lykan HyperSport and Aston Martin One-77. Well, that's just the tip of an iceberg. In addition to cars, the force also employs high-end motorcycles, helicopters and boats to engage a target.
Here is the list of top 10 supercars of UAE Police.
Lykan Hypersport is a limited production hypercar built by W Motors, a UAE based company, founded in 2012 in Lebanon. W Motors will only roll out seven of them and Abu Dhabi Police was quick to grab one of the wonders. The Abu Dhabi Police Force officially added the 'rara sunt car' to its patrol portfolio in 2015.
The Lykan HyperSport is powered by a 3.7-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that develops 780hp of power and 960Nm of torque. The exclusive model can achieve 100kmph speed in 2.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 395kmph. The Lykan HyperSport costs a whopping $3.4 million.
Aston Martin One-77
