Dubai Police Adds Amphibious Quad/Jet-Ski to its Arsenal of Awesome Vehicles

October 3, 2014

If Lamborghinis, Bugattis, Bentleys, Ferraris and Can-Am Spyder superbikes aren’t enough to cement Dubai’s Police reputation as the most extravagant in the world for centuries to come, I don’t know what would. Let’s see… Amphibious transforming ATVs perhaps? Wait, what? They have those as well?

Only days ago we reported on the emirati police force procuring its finest some Google Glasses for face recognition of no-gooders. But what if a baddy being pursued on the highway takes to the water instead? He wouldn’t get far, as our brave officer in patrol will simply hit a switch on his quad, and morph it into a seafaring jet-ski.

So here’s a small fleet recap of Dubai’s finest:

– Bugatti Veyron, world’s fastest car (for all practical purposes). That’s a cool million right there, btw.

– A raft of Lamborghinis, Bentleys, Ferraris etc.

– Can Am tri-wheeled Spyder superbike

– Google Glass smartglasses

– Segway-like “Zippi”

– GCC’s fastest chase boat

No wonder Dubai has one of the lowest crime-rates worldwide. When your police car fleet looks like something straight out of a Gi-Jo HQ, everybody heeds the law. Even repeat offenders are lining up to join the force, I imagine!
