The Ghiath Beast Patrol – Dubai’s new hi-tech cop car

Dubai is home to some of the fastest cars in the world. Time and again we’ve seen its police force get outfitted with supercar-chasing patrol vehicles, including the 700 hp/960 Nm Brabus B63S-700 Widestar, as well as a Lamborghini Aventador and Bugatti Veyron.

However, its latest patrol car really takes things up a couple notches. Meet the Ghiath Beast Patrol SUV, dubbed as one of the most advanced police vehicles in the world. It is equipped with artificial intelligence systems featuring facial recognition technology, and it even has a touchscreen dashboard, suicide doors, emergency lights in the grille, roof and tailgate, as well as an automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR).

The facial recognition technology is actually demonstrated in the video below. It’s a deployable system which can be raised through the roof, and it’s also operable while cruising. The patrol vehicle also features an extremely futuristic and state-of-the-art communication system which is directly linked to the command operations room.

As for the SUV itself, it’s produced by W Motors, the same people that brought you the 404 km/h Lykan HyperSport supercar (also a patrol car). It’s unclear if the Ghiath is a one-off model, but it was built from General Motors’ parts bin. Nothing is known about its performance as yet, although going by the sheer looks alone, it’d be silly to think that it’s slow. What do you think of it?

    Only in Dubai, Police uses fancy sport cars or SUV for their police fleet. Actually, its good cause those policeman/women work very professionally unlike other countries. Dubai give police a good car so that they as police officer can do their duty wisely and comfortable. Police officer will felt appreciated and work clean (non Corruption). Beside that, their pay must be good too. In Malaysia however… That’s sad to see. Even G give them Evo 10 which consist 10 units and amounted RM300k each. In the end, all Evo’s become trash. Sultan Johor give 1 unit GTR 35 for their police fleet in Johor only and yet still in good shape.
