Everyone knows that many of Rolls Royce and Bentley clients come from Middle East. But not everyone knows that the Middle East police has the same passion for luxury vehicles. The Dubai police has one of the most expensive fleets in the world, with many rare supercars, and even a Bugatti Veyron painted in its white and green colour scheme.
 
Among its cars we find a McLaren MP4-12C, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Chevrolet Camaro SS, Ferrari FF, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG, Brabus B63S-700 Widestar, Bentley Continental, Nissan GT-R, Mercedes-Benz SLS, Aston Martin One-77, Lamborghini Aventador and even the small electric Renault Twizy.
 
And what is more intriguing is that the policeman will not drive the cars, all of them being acquired just as a touristic attractions.
 
The most recent car used by the Dubai police is the new BMW i8, the first plug-in hybrid supercar of the German manufacturer. The coupe uses a 1.5 liter TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder petrol unit that can develop 231 horsepower and 320 Nm peek of torque. There is also an electric engine with 131 horsepower and 250 Nm. The petrol engine powers the back wheels, while the front ones are powered by the electric unit.
 
The total power output is of 362 HP and 570 Nm. In these conditions, the sprint from stand still to 100 km/h (62 mph) is done in 4.5 seconds, while the top speed was electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). In the electric mode, the BMW i8 can do 35 miles and it has a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).
