But let's see it on a two-track

April 11, 2013 - Steve Murch
There's rich, there's filthy rich, and then there's the United Arab Emirates. Or at least the Dubai police department in UAE.

The Associated Press reports the Dubai police have added a grand sign of opulence — a nearly $550,000 Lamborghini to its fleet.

“The sports car, painted in green-and-white colors of the Dubai force, will not likely be roaring after law breakers. Instead, it will be mostly dispatched to tourist areas to show — in the words of deputy police director, Gen. Khamis Matter al-Muzaina — 'how classy Dubai is,'” the story states.

Show offs.

The story says local media are reporting that the high-priced car Italian sports car joins a fleet that will have some good old American muscle. Muscle cars to be precise — Camaros.

The story states the city, with a population of over 2 million, is seeking “to show it has rebounded from its debt crisis with brash plans that include the world's largest Ferris wheel and a satellite city named after the city-state's ruler.”

I'd say that if it hasn't then a half-million dollar car will certain have people fooled.

Imagine the car chase with that one. The police chase the bad guys, an overzealous cop decides to see how fast the car can go while trying to catch up, and goes flying bad the bad guys because their lowly little BMW doesn't have the same top-end speed.
