Following in the footsteps of the Dubai Police, the Dubai Fire Brigade have purchased their own needlessly fast sports car for no apparent reason, a 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51.
Posted originally on Drive Arabia, The fluorescent yellow Corvette was on display at the 2013 Dubai Air Show, along some of the Dubai Police forces in-service exotics, including an Audi R8 and a Ferrari FF. Prior to upgrading to the C7, the Dubai Fire Brigade would roam the streets in a C6 Corvette with a huge rear spoiler. Yet, we don’t think it will be very effective in putting out any fires.
The Corvette is not totally pointless in this case. The Fire Brigade actually uses their C7 for faster response times to the scene of a fire or an accident and to carry first aid and other relevant equipment, but we still can’t figure out what the Dubai Police could possibly do with a Bugatti Veyron.
