Abu Dhabi police buy one of the fastest production cars in the world

Although the Abu Dhabi police has some powerful machines at its disposal, their new toy promises 770 horsepower and 737 pound-feet of torque, figures which are hard to match. The power is provided by a 3.8-liter flat-six Porsche engine, which has been tuned by the highly-renowned RUF.

We may be about to see just what the car can do as it chases criminals on the mean streets of Abu Dhabi. Assuming the images are correct, of course.

It is not only in Abu Dhabi that those with a desire to enact a real version of “Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit” will find the odds of being captured significantly shortened. The police force in the nearby emirate of Dubai also boasts a seriously impressive collection of supercars, which they showed off in this well-produced and oh-so-modest promotional video.
