Nothing like a show of muscle – and speed – to help in policing the streets. The Italians did it, and now the UAE is too. The Dubai police force has added a fast cruiser to its fleet, in the form of a Lamborghini Aventador.

It’s not quite ascertained just how the Lambo cop car is set to be deployed – various news reports offer different takes, from utilising the Aventador in locations that require a fast, sporty response and also as a deterrent to road users in the UAE from using the tarmac as if they were racetracks.

Apparently, speeding is a major issue in Dubai, with 15% of tickets for traffic offences issued daily being for that, with speeds of 200 km/h being the norm. It’s reported that those caught going at that speed may soon not just face fines but prison time for endangering the lives of others. Guess the Aventador can definitely catch the runners.

Other reports have the car set to ply tourist areas. Oh well, whatever the case may be, it’s definitely a winning score in one-upmanship. Hopefully, it won’t end up like the Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia patrol car – one of two in service then with the Polizia di Stato – that got pranged in 2009.
