Dubai Police have unveiled three more supercar models as part of its new look car fleet.

Following recent unveilings of a Ferrari FF and a Lamborghini, the force has shown off new cars from luxury UK auto maker Aston Martin, Bentley and Mercedes.

The Aston Martin One-77, Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes SLS have been launched at the Arabian Travel Market.

Last month, Dubai’s police chief said that a number of Ferraris to be introduced to the force will be driven by female officers.

Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan tweeted that he expected to see Dubai Police’s female recruits getting behind the wheels of the Ferrari FF supercar, which costs about $500,000 and has a top speed of 335 kmph.

Earlier, Dubai Police also revealed its new AED2m ($500,000) Lamborghini which can reach speeds of up to 350 kmph.

Dubai Police’s fleet also includes the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Kia Mohave.
