The Dubai police force is famous the world over for its extravagant fleet of vehicles. Their law enforcement lineup consists of supercars like the Aston Martin One-77, McLaren MP4 12C, Ferrari FF, Lamborghini Aventador and more. According to them, driving cars like this helps to bridge the barrier between civilians and the police. If people are willing to approach the police for a friendly conversation about the car, maybe they will be more trusting and less intimidated by them on a day-to-day basis.
Dubai isn’t the only city in the United Arab Emirates with such a philosophy. The equally as wealthy and almost as extravagant neighbouring city of Abu Dhabi also has some impressive cop cars, including a Nissan GT-R and a Chevrolet Camaro SS. Two lucky officers recently took the pair out to a drag strip in the region to put on a show for the locals, which can be seen in the video below.
The officer behind the wheel of the Camaro SS pulls a nice all-American burnout before lining up against its Japanese competitor, which the onlookers seemed to have enjoyed based on their reactions. Of course, the GT-R walks all over the Camaro with its powerful twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a grippy all-wheel drive layout. But concentrating on who won the race is missing the point, this is two cops drag racing each other in a Camaro and a GT-R, does it really matter who wins?
