    • In the early days of supercars, traffic violations often came few and far between for their owners, because what police car could possibly outrun—much less keep up with—a 200 mph road beast? This is rarely the case today, because police forces in supercar-heavy countries like the United States, Germany, the UK and the UAE are better equipped to chase down speedy perpetrators. With that, we offer you this list of the seven fastest police cars around the world. See for yourself how our very own Toyota Vioses stack up.

      1. Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Polizia

      Bologna, Italy

      Engine: 5.2 liter V10

      Power: 560 HP, 398 lb-ft

      0-60: 3.7 seconds

      Max. Speed: 203 mph

      The Italian government presented its local police with two supercars to combat the growing menace of speedsters on its roads—a Huracan and a Gallardo, both manufactured by Lamborghini. Other than tackling its fellow supercars, the Gallardo also saw use a transport for medical purposes such as delivering organs for transplant operations. It was replaced very recently with another Huracan, and retired to the Roman police car museum.

      1. Ferrari FF

      Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      Engine: 6.3 liter V12

      Power: 651 HP, 504 lb-ft

      0-60: 3.7 seconds

      Max. Speed: 208 mph

      Costing just a hair below $300,000, driving this luxury vehicle can feel like a crime on its own, but if you live in a place like Dubai where cars need to be wrapped in gold, it’s only fitting for the police to have its own fleet of supercars at its disposal. The Ferrari FF is just one of 14 supercars in the Dubai Police’s fleet, and they have the distinction of owning the fastest police car in the world, but we’ll get to that later.

      1. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

      Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      Engine: 6.2-liter V8

      Power: 583 hp, 479 lb-ft

      0-60: 3.8 seconds

      Top Speed: 211 mph

      Notice a pattern here? This list is practically riddled with entries from Dubai. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in particular, is equipped with gullwing doors, which makes ingress and egress even cooler. We heard Dubai cops strike their favorite Miami Vice pose with this racer, but that little tidbit is unconfirmed.

      1. Lamborghini Aventador

      Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      Engine: 700 PS 6.5 litre 60° V12 engine

      Power: 700 HP, 507 lb-ft

      0-60: 2.9 seconds

      Max. Speed: 217 mph

      This 700-hp beast costs around $400,000, easily making it one of Dubai Police’s priciest possessions. Of note, the Lamborghini Aventador was the first time authorities let the public decide on the police car’s design.

      1. Aston Martin One 77

      Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      Engine: 7312 CC V12

      Power: 750 HP, 553 lb-ft

      0-60: 3.7 seconds

      Max. Speed: 220 mph

      By now, you probably have it in mind that the Dubai Police is not worth messing with. With this entry, the police department outdoes itself by owning one of the rarest supercars in the world, as there are only 77 units of this vehicle built. The difference being, Dubai Police’s version is outfitted to fight crime.

      1. BRABUS CLS V12 S Rocket

      Germany

      Engine: 6.3-liter Biturbo V12

      Power: 730 HP, 810 lb-ft

      0-60: 4.0 seconds

      Max. Speed: 225.19 mph

      The Brabus Rocket is actually a modified Mercedes CLS that can keep up with almost any supercar available. This was the fastest police car on record until recently, when a supercar-loving city (you guessed it, Dubai) snatched the spot. However, it’s a pity that such a fast car rarely sees any action, because unlike Dubai’s super police cars, Germany instead used the Brabus as the face of a program meant to inspire drivers to modify their cars responsibly.

      1. Bugatti Veyron

      Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      Engine: 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged

      Power: 1,200 HP, 1,100 lb-ft

      0-60: 2.5 seconds

      Max. Speed: 268 mph

      As if what they had wasn’t enough, the Dubai Police decided it was necessary to add the second fastest car in the world to their fleet. With the Bugatti Veyron, the city police practically have everything they need to take down anything. That is, unless they’re chasing down a Hennessey Venom GT.
