    Dubai police show off supercar fleet (VIDEO)

    Dubai police

    Dubai police hits the streets in its supercar fleet, including a Bugatti Veyron and Nissan GT-R, in viral video. 

    It’s well documented that the Dubai police force doesn’t patrol in the usual fleet of low-powered inexpensive poverty mobiles. Instead of the usual rubbish, the Dubai cops cruise the luxurious city’s streets in some of the fastest and coolest supercars in the world, including a Nissan GT-R, McLaren 12C, Ferrari FF, G63 AMG and Bugatti Veyron. Originally it was thought that the police Veyron was a photoshopped fake, but this latest video posted on the Dubai force’s Youtube channel, proves that it is actually completely legit. The video is a bit of showing off from well-funded Dubai rozzers, but is a rather cool bit of filming that shows a heap of very fast and expensive supercars roaming the streets of a rather cool city. It almost looks like a trailer for a cool car movie. Check it out.

    World’s Most Expensive RV Sold In Dubai

    EleMMent Palazzo

    If you’re rich, Dubai is the place to go if you want to feel normal. It’s the city wherecops drive supercars, and the government toys with banning poor people from driving to relieve road congestion.

    It’s not too surprising, then, that the world’s most expensive RV was recently sold in Dubai. The 40-foot-long EleMMent Palazzo from Austrian company Marchi Mobile changed hands for around $3 million, according to BoldRide. Apparently, money doesn’t buy an understanding of proper capitalization.

    It doesn’t buy style either. The EleMMent Palazzo looks like an alien spacecraft, or perhaps two different vehicles fused together by some mishap involving tampering with the spacetime continuum. At least it’s covered in gold, which should help the new owner explain the colossal pricetag.

    On the inside, this extravagant recreational vehicle contains more than meets the eye. It comes with a pop-up rooftop terrace and cocktail lounge, plus a fireplace, master bedroom, and underfloor heating. The master bedroom (with its own bathroom) and cockpit are actually on the second of two levels.

    Despite carrying all of the weight of a large apartment, the EleMMent Palazzo can reportedly reach a top speed of 93 mph. Its unclear what powertrain allows it to reach that speed. Maybe it’s powered by the hopes and dreams of the working class.

    Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 08.13.08

    It may seem outlandish and grotesquely extravagant, but in the city that saw the debut of the 750 horsepower Lykan Hypersport and the 5,000 hp Devel Sixteen supercars it should fit right in.

    Behind The Scenes At Cool Supercar Startup Arash (VIDEO)

    Behind The Scenes At Supercar Startup Arash

    Arash Motor Company is a supercar brand in the making. After a couple of failed starts, Arash has finally revealed a car that is destined for production and might just have what it takes to put the company on the map. The car is the AF8, a mid-engined, V-8-powered track weapon that’s also luxurious and civil enough to use a daily driver.

    Recently, the guys at Shmee150 visited Arash’s headquarters in the U.K. and were able to get a personal tour of the site by Arash CEO and founder Arash Farboud. It’s easy to brush off Arash as just another supercar startup, but the passion, openness and humility demonstrated by its founder is rarely matched among automotive CEOs.

    Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 16.48.31

    The video is well worth the watch in its entirety, especially because of the detailed explanation of how the individual parts for the new AF8 were designed. As a quick reminder, the AF8 will feature an output of 550 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque, drive the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission, and have a top speed of 200 mph or more. Arash plans to start production in about a year, with the cars to be hand-assembled at the rate of three per month.

    As a bonus, the video above also shows some of Arash Farboud’s personal cars, which confirms he’s a true driving enthusiast. Among the lineup are a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and Porsche Carrera GT.

    Only in Dubai: Maserati GranTurismo with Gold Wrap and Swarovski Crystals (VIDEO)

    Maserati GranTurismo with Gold Wrap and Swarovski Crystals

    Just another day in Dubai…

    Owning a Maserati GranTurismo in Dubai is equivalent to a owning Ford Fiesta. It’s your average day to day $100,000 vehicle that doesn’t really stand out in a country of opulence that is Dubai. Unless it wrapped in Gold?

    That’s why the attention-seeking owner of this Maserati decided to wrap his GranTurismo in gold and put some Swarovski crystals on top for extra over the top bling.

    What’s better than having a collection of wild cats living in your garden to flash your cash? Having your cat collection walk all over your insane collection of luxury, exotic and super cars.

    Instagram sensation Humaid Albuqaish does exactly that and has managed to accumulate over 400,000 cat and car mad followers.

    Take a look below at Humaid Albuqaish’s big cats and fast cars:

    While Lions and Tigers are pretty freaking cool, we’re massively digging the luxury car collection these beasts prance about on.

    Will This Koenigsegg One:1 Be Dubai’s Next Police Car?

    Koenigsegg's One-1 Dubai police car

    The Dubai Police have some of the most amazing super cars in the world in their fleet.  Their supercar fleet consists the ultimate ‘knock list’ for super cars, including, the Bugatti Veyron,  Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren 12C, Ferrari FF, and the ultra-rare Aston Martin One-77.

    A new supercar has hit the blocks – the Koenigsegg’s 1340bhp One:1 – which the Dubai police will have firmly in their sights if they are to become the ultimate supercar fleet.

    Sadly all 6 have been bought, and while the Dubai Police won’t get one in the foreseeable future, you can see what it will exactly look like here. Supercar photographer SantaPanter has created the following rendering complete with the Dubai Police livery to visual just how such a One:1 could look!

    Render: Dubai Police Koenigsegg One:1

     

    After been shared around the world and featured in many prominent auto websites, including TopGear, Santapanter decided to give the people what they want and create a rear rendering.

    “After the success of my One:1 render from last week (from 550 to 700 likes in a week), I also created a render from the back of the car!”

    Dubai Ridding Roads Of Pesky Peasants?

    A lot of people in Dubai are doing pretty well for themselves, to say the least. It’s basically the capital of the world for wealth. And it seems this may have gone to their heads a bit, as Dubai are now looking to prevent poor people from using the roads.

    Yep, it’s as ridiculous as it sounds. It seems the roads just aren’t spacious enough for the rich folk.

    Hussain Lootah is the man behind this move, attempting to rid Dubai of heavy congestion. The plan is, to make car parks, fuel prices, and insurance, much more expensive; essentially meaning those that can’t bathe in their own money won’t be able to use their cars to get around.

    chrome1

    An all too common ridiculous sight in Dubai

    They are also planning to implement a strict rule, which prevents those under a minimum salary threshold from owning a car. Of course, because it’s Dubai, the minimum salary might be pretty hefty. And those in power will probably throw money in an attempt to make driving a very exclusive club, for their ludicrously expensive vehicles.

    Of course, the poor have been reminded by Lootah that there’s always the lovely public transport available. The Metro is being expanded in the future, and there are a number of luxury buses to hop on. Since when can the words “bus” and “luxury” be used in the same sentence, especially when they’re public?

    At least the police won't be facing restrictions

    At least the police won’t be facing restrictions

    Nothing quite like having your independence stripped off of you. I feel as though the ability to own a car should be a basic human right. I mean sure, congestion, pollution, and rush hour queues have to be combated in some way; but sensible options such as awareness schemes and carpooling have been dismissed already. But these kind of stupid ideas some how slip through. The luxury of some, seems to be far more important than convenience for the entire population.

    Perhaps the idea of ridding the roads of peasantry is far more appealing than solving the original problem itself.

    That Awkward Moment When You See A Lion Chilling In The Car In Front Of You (VIDEO)

    Lion Locked in Back of a Car in Dubai

    A Dubai driver was stunned to find a lion chilling in the back of the SUV in front of him. Astonishingly a young female lion popped its head up while this driver was waiting in a traffic jam.

    We’re pretty sure this is illegal and it would have made this video a hell of lot cooler if a Dubai Police Bugatti Veyron pulled them over.

    The Crown Prince Of Dubai Has Reportedly Spent $800,000 On Crazy Water Cars

    Watercar

    Watercar
    This crazy amphibious car is about to hit the market for $135,000, and it’s certainly getting everyone’s attention. The Panther seems equipped to handle pretty much anything, from slick city streets to rough seas.

    Ever since WaterCar inventor Dave March posted a video of the Panther’s amazing capabilities in June, he’s been bombarded with a flood of interested buyers, from NASCAR drivers to Silicon Valley tycoons. Even Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, the crown Prince of Dubai, has gotten involved in the craze, reportedly ordering six of the cars.

    “I’ve got guys that are throwing money at me,” March said to the Orange County Register. “It’s a fun position to be in.”

    The Panther is a more rugged, more affordable version of an earlier model called the Python. That first car could reach a record-setting speed of 60 mph on water, though the $300,000 price tag made it inaccessible to most buyers.

    The Panther is smaller, easier to maintain, and half the price. WaterCar sells the Panther as a kit, meaning that buyers must hire a third party to install the engine. The owner must also register it as both a boat and a car.

    Here’s the video that started it all — watch as the Panther takes on everything from city streets to sand dunes to the water.

    Dubai Police Force Gains Another Supercar – A McLaren 12C

    The Dubai Police Force has added a new supercar to its extensive fleet – the British McLaren 12c coupe. 

    There must be a whole lot of baddies in Dubai. Fast baddies. Because, the Dubai police force has one of the speediest car collections in the world. The list of cop cars includes a Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, Mercedes SLS AMG, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes G63 AMG, Chevrolet Camaro, a BMW M6, and even a super rare Aston Martin One-77.

    But it seems this fleet of super fast cars isn’t quite enough to prevent Dubai law-breakers from doing bad. So, how do we fix this Senior Constable? Buy another supercar, obviously. The latest addition to the Dubai force is a 616hp McLaren 12C Coupe. It does 0-62mph in about 3.1 seconds and well over 200mph. Try and outrun it at your peril.
