Looks like the URL changed - above is what I copied from the article link when I found it (enter "bugatti-veyron-joins-dubai-police-fleet" to Google search, comes right up). Note the "news/gulf/uae" where the originally posted link has "news/uae"

Seems to have happened last May - http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...i-police-fleet - don't know why it is getting more coverage this month.

You can never have too much money. That's like saying you have too much ammo or too many guns.

They probably need all those ridiculously fast cars to keep up with the rich traffic violators and criminals they chase who have the same type of cars.

My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I drive a Mercedes, my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover, but his son will ride a camel

-Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum

It is weird, but after 7 trips the opulence gets quite boring. I did enjoy heading to Abu Dhabi to go white water kayaking though.
