To help them keep up with rich businessmen in their speeding sports cars, police in Dubai decided to invest in one of the most powerful production cars on the planet: a Bugatti Veyron. With a blistering top speed of 407 km/h (253 mph), its 1,000-horse-power, 16-cylinder engine launches the car of 0 to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds.
Dubai Police took ownership of their new toy in April 2016 for a modest sum of US$1.6 m. It’s not their first supercar – they already own a Lamborghini Aventador. The Veyron, however, is renowned as the second fastest street-legal car in the world, only being pipped by the 427 km/h Hennessey Venom GT.
