Dubai police get a 700bhp Lamborghini Aventador

Dubai remains a city known for its wealth; built off the back of the oil industry, it now flourishes in tourism, real estate, and financial services. All that cash floating around evidently means one thing: lawbreakers drive highly expensive, fast cars. So, in response, the Dubai Police Department added an even faster car to its fleet – a 700-hp Lamborghini Aventador. No word on which lucky Dubai cop gets to pilot the beastly machine, nor if they require special driver training. One thing's for sure, applications to become a cop would be at an all-time high now. Also take a look at the exotic police cars from around the world.
