The most expensive police car in the world

Faster and more expensive than almost any other car: the police in Abu Dhabi are preparing to dup their colleagues in neighboring Dubai – with the diamond-studded Lykan Hypersport.

D.whether the police in the Persian Gulf likes ultra-fast patrol cars, the authorities in Dubai have already proven several times. A Bugatti Veyron, a McLaren MP4-12C or an Aston Martin One-77 is part of the fleet in the desert city. But now the uniformed men are getting competition from their neighbors in Abu Dhabi.

Because according to their own information, the Abu Dhabi Police have put the Lykan Hypersport, which was founded in Beirut, into their service, with a speed of up to 385 km / h. The police have not yet bought the hit from a report in the local newspaper "The National", but they are considering. "We are currently testing whether it meets the requirements of the Abu Dhabi Police," said a police spokesman for the newspaper.

As one of the first pieces of information in the relevant press release, the Abu Dhabi Police pointed out the price of the Lycan: The supercar, limited to seven pieces, costs a “breathtaking” 12.845 million dirhams, which corresponds to 3.14 million euros. This gives the car the reputation of being the most expensive police car in the world.

Lessons from "Fast and Furios"

The purpose of the car is to increase the attention of young people in particular, said Ahmed Abdullah al-Muhairi, who is responsible for traffic safety at the authority. The aim is to promote the “road safety culture” in this target group and to familiarize them with the risks of road accidents.

According to the Abu Dhabi embassy in Germany, in the Emirates, where a maximum speed limit of 120 km / h applies, a large number of people die in road traffic by international standards. "So please drive very cautiously and carefully," advises the embassy on its website.

Something like the ultimate traffic accident in the broadest sense of the word was built by Lycan Hypersport in the Hollywood blockbuster "Fast and Furios 7", in which he flying through three of the Etihad Towers in an automobile leading role, finally crashing and bursting 45 floors below on the ground . The deterrent effect remains to be seen.

The emirate’s police department is planning the streaking wedge to appear at various “tourist locations” and shopping malls across the emirate. At least the publicity effect is assured, because the W-Motors racer is also one of the fastest cars in the world, which also comes across as splendid. When introducing the flounder, the manufacturer announced in 2013 that the LED lights were decorated with diamonds and the leather seats with gold thread.

Official paintwork, official performance

The Lycan Hypersport in the official red and white police livery is powered by a six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer from Ruf, which develops 750 hp and releases almost 1000 Newton meters of torque.

With a sprint ability of 2.8 seconds to 100 km / h, the police could even defy traffic offenders on fast motorcycles – in theory. As in the case of other show cars, the Abu Dhabi Police are specifically targeting the effect of self-promotion.

Except that with the exception of a recently clamped Rolls-Royce Phantom, unlike their colleagues in Dubai, they have so far held back a little – with a Chevrolet Camaro SS or a Polaris quad, they drummed for attention.

In Lykan Hypersport, the uniformed men could now afford a congenial race with their colleagues from Dubai – the two emirates are connected by a wide motorway. But even that is just a thought experiment.
