Dubai: Dubai Police have broken the Guinness World Record of having the fastest police car in the world, a Bugatti Veyron.

The Dubai Police’s supercar beats the US police patrol, a Lamborghini which has a maximum speed of 360 kmph.
Bugatti Veyron has a top speed of 407 kmph, and the 16-cylinder car boasts 1,200 horsepower, allowing it to reach 100 kmph in 2.5 seconds.

The police force also has a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, Aston Martin One-77, Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari FF, Audi R 8, Nissan GTR, Mercedes SL 63 and the Maclaren MP4-12C.
