What you would say if the local police of your city or town all of a sudden “apatrullase” the streets with a Porsche 918 Spyder? What would be a scandal in any city in the world with two fingers at the front seems to be the norm in Dubai, a city that is tributary capital and financial center of the Middle East. To its fleet of supercars high-flying just joined a Porsche 918 Spyder, equipped with the package Weissach high performance and displaying the usual colors of the police of the emirate.
Dubai Police has in its fleet a Bugatti Veyron or an Aston Martin One-77, among other machines of high flights.
The car will not be used actively in pursuits or in patrol – for that you have several Nissan GT-R, its utility – but will be used as a marketing element in the most popular areas of the city. If you are planning to visit Dubai soon, you may find this unit parked or taking part in any exhibition. Do not take both strobe lights or computer to advanced communications. And if you’re thinking of doing illegal races with your supercar, perhaps to make you think twice.
In a country where petrodollars are flowing everywhere – and the dollars normal also – the illegal races and speeding are a problem. The 918 Spyder is not devoted to chasing the bad guys, but to do so, it would be the car most suitable for: thanks to its 900-HP of combined power is capable of doing the 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds and its tip is self-limited to a few correct 350 km/h. If you want more, I suggest you see the video released by Dubai police, in which it appears their entire fleet.
