  1. Date first joined police force vehicle fleet, or date first reported or announced.
  2. Usually based on first hand observation or photographs. Some apparent conflicts for example photos seen of plate 777 on the G-Wagon and the Twizy, and plate 1111 on the Lexus RCF and BMW i8.
  3. Different figures reported - $1.79m (AED 6.57m), AED11m ($3m). Unknown what Dubai Police paid for it.
  4. Top Gear drove one in Dubai in 2012? Report was in September 2012 magazine issue.
  5. Reports of a Bugatti Veyron addition to the Dubai Police supercar fleet were based on a Twitter photo tweet by Lt Gen Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Chief of Dubai Police. Different figures reported, even in the same report:
    • $1.4m, $1.6m, $2.7m (AED 10m), $4m - for example the International Business Times said "Dubai Police Add $1.4M Bugatti Veyron ... the Dubai Police Department has gone and added a $4 million Bugatti Veyron ..."
    • Different top speeds reported - 407 kph and 431 kph. Most reports said 431 kph?
    • However, one report said it was a photoshopped photo and not a real Dubai Police car, from autoblog.nl: "Bugatti Veyron voor politie Dubai is een hoax. Voor nu." (in Dutch, translation: Bugatti Veyron for Dubai police is a hoax. For now.), 23 May 2013.
  6. Dubai Police Twitter account said "#Dubai_Police launches its newest Super Patrol Car - Bugatti Veyron". Presumably a real one this time (a Dubai Police Veyron picture was tweeted by the Dubai Police Chief on his own Twitter account in May 2013).
    • Dubai Police Bugatti Veyron 0-100 km/h time also reported as 2.2 sec (2.7 sec).
  7. Specifications and performance figures not given for the Dubai Police model, figures in italics are estimates from other sources. Same vehicle reported later as a "Rhino" or an unnamed "green eco-friendly vehicle" (information given not clear).
  8. Some reports seen saying Dubai Police had a Ferrari 458 Italia in their fleet but confirmation not found. Similarly for a Lamborghini Gallardo. At least not as of March 2015, but who knows what they'll buy next ...
    • Differences with Ferrari FF vs Ferrari 458: the FF has a bigger boot (or trunk), which makes it more useful for transporting criminals.
    • Aventador vs Gallardo comparison: the Avantador has headlight washers, remote boot release, and child safety locks, the Gallardo doesn't. And the Aventador is faster.
  9. Photos seen in March 2013 of a Carbon Motors E7 in Abu Dhabi Police colors but since the company went bust around that time, presumably it was not delivered even if it was ordered. The E7 was to be a purpose built police car, available for purchase only by police forces.
  10. Photos seen in March 2014 of a Porsche GT3 in Dubai Police paint job by SignatureWraps in Belgium with Dutch number plates (NL 85-XV-LK) and incorrect police emergency number (997 instead of 999). Doesn't appear to be an actual Dubai Police force car. No announcement from Dubai Police found about acquiring a GT3 ... so far.
  11. Lexus GS350 badged car, which model not announced. New price is AED 180,000 for GS250 2.5L V6 250 bhp up to AED 275,000 for GS450 F Hybrid 3.5L V6 340 bhp. Also not clear if this is part of the supercar fleet or a daily driver for standard cop car duties, but so far there is only one being used by Dubai Police.
  12. Ford Mustang Roush power also reported as 670 bhp (575 bhp).
Why does Dubai Police have a fleet of supercars?

According to Brigadier Nabil Abdulla Al Redha of the Dubai Police, "We mostly use the cars in places that have lots of tourists, allowing them to take pictures. This is promoting the image of Dubai to the world." (E-247 report 24 Dec 2013).
