Dubai Police gets new BMW patrol cars

dubai-police-cars-bmw-5-series.jpg

Yep, Dubai Police has taken delivery of 101 BMW 5-Series cars, half of which will be used as patrol cars. They are a good step up from the Mercedes-Benz C-classes, Toyota Fortuners and Nissan Pathfinders the cops keep trolling around in already.

An example of this car was first shown almost a year ago at some defence show in Abu Dhabi. Take heart in the fact that they are 530i models, so one could still get away with a reasonably fast car. Not that we condone such behaviour.

    he has mentioned its the 530i clearly.
    now my question is, are the dubai cops skillful enough to NOT drive this into the friendly neighborhood ditch while taking a corner?? :grin:

    yes and they are using them in the civil defence thing (just in the emergency cases). they showed that on tv (news)
    and really it reminds me with need for speed most wanted
    when your heat becomes 5or higher corvette cars start on chasing you.
    really this game is very nice :mrgreen:

    what is the meaninig of civil defence. these cars are not foe chasing patrol or any another cars. its for shutting down any small fire before it becomes an uncotrolable one.
    and even for chasing, why it cant stop landcruiser or patrol????? :neutral:

    because the landcruiser and nissan patrol with shahama and Awafi guys are heavily loaded they can beat a lambo with that so how this corvette can chase them :lol: :lol: :lol:

    The 900 tires of Patrol is taller than a corvette. easly to jump over corvette.

    I think the Dubai Police should use the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chevrolet Caprice, Toyota Land Cruiser and Nissan Patrol as patrol cars because they are much better and reliable

    I think they should use the aurion V6 because it has more punch under the bonnet :cool:

    I love the Dubai Police…Its so good to see these BMW’s patroling on streets in nights. It gives out a beautiful view.
    And there’s one more thing. In Dubai, one rarely gets to see a Police C-series Mercedes. The most common is the Nissan Pathfinder, I almost see em’ everyday. But Mercedes ? Once in every two months or so. Why is that ? Ain’t there many Mercedes in service with Dubai Police ?

    They should upgrade to M5s
    But they got my respect going with the best car in the worlds… the BMW 5er

    BMW drivetrains and tough and solid compared to japanese cars, much tougher and solid.. Police doesnt go for any random choice just for the fun of it..
    An entry model bmw should be tough and reliable on a long run for them and they chose it with a purpose..
    Not to forget mentioning the excellent driving dynamics these cars have..
    Japanese cars? you wont find a single japanese car that provides the same solid package..

    Oh, seems government, has lots of money. BMW’s are ok, but the still need some 4×4’s under the belt, their is lot more to policing, other than chasing.
