Not content with a $500,000 Lamborghini to chase down criminals in Dubai, the emirate's police chief has announced that it will soon be adding a Ferrari to its fleet.

In a tweet on the official Dubai Police twitter account, Lt General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim said: "Soon Ferrari will join Dubai police fleet".

He added: "Dubai is a cosmopolitan city and its police cars should reflect that.

"We have been pleasantly surprised for the reaction of people on the Lamborghini so we said a Ferrari would be a good choice too."

Last week, Dubai Police unveiled its latest addition to the force: an AED2m ($500,000) Lamborghini.

Cops in the emirate said the Italian supercar had a top speed of 350 kmph police should have no trouble chasing down offenders.

The two-door roadster, which was first unveiled by Lamborghini at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011, boasts a 6.5 litre V12 engine with 690 hp.

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