Dubai Police Enlist Aston Martin One-77


Just in case a Lamborghini Aventador andFerrari FF weren’t enough, Dubai Police has gone out and recruited a handful of new supercars for its fleet including a rare Aston Martin One-77.

Yes, one of the bespoke Aston Martin supercars, of which only 77 were ever built, will be used for police duties in the Gulf state and will be joined by a Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The new police cars were presented at the Dubai Trade Center recently, where these images were taken.

Like the previous Aventador and FF supercars Dubai Police enlisted, the trio of new recruits will be used primarily as a deterrent for anyone considering breaking the speed limit, particular those owners of high-powered exotics.

The cars will also be used in popular tourist areas to help promote Dubai. In fact, their first appearance was at a travel exposition.

The One-77 is now the rarest and most expensive vehicle in the Dubai Police fleet and was no doubt donated by one of Dubai’s wealthy residents. All examples of the car are sold and Aston Martin goes to great lengths to ensure they don’t turn up on the open market, so it’s unlikely the car was actually bought by Dubai Police.

The One-77 is also the most powerful car in the fleet, with its 7.3-liter V-12 engine delivering 750 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The next most powerful car in the fleet is the Aventador, which rates at 691 horsepower.

At the time of its launch, the going price on a One-77 was 1.15 million pounds, which at today’s exchange rate is approximately $1.79 million. We wonder what’s next, a Bugatti Veyron?
