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

Cops in the emirate revealed via Twitter a brand new Aventador built by the Italian supercar maker, and with a top speed of 350 kmph police should have no trouble chasing down offenders.

Making the announcement, Dubai Police tweeted: “Latest #Dubai_Police patrols, now at your service”, before adding an online link to the picture of the car, complete with police livery, parked in front of a crowd of tourists in Downtown Dubai.

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.

It is not clear what plans, if any, authorities in Dubai have to further roll-out the vehicle.

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

Two door roadster? It'd be tricky folding that roof away with the light bar on top.

Very impressive I must say! Fits perfectly with Dubai's image and ambitions. Now they can zoom off after all those late-night speeders.

A local newspaper quoted a Dubai police chief as saying it showed the world how 'classy' Dubai is. Erm, maybe if you're Russian?! Crass but certainly not class.

Of course your right Lady B .No worries though world is more than familiar with the las vegas mentality. Dubai is lots of glitziest no substance. Would love to see more Russian expats in the UAE they have much in common. : )

This silly prank has got Dubai world headlines, for all the wrong reasons. The sneering comments about the childish need to be biggest, longest, silliest do Dubai no good when it is trying to recover some sense of financial propriety. Maybe actually building some stalled projects instead of blowing money on bling might make people take the place seriously again.
