It is a pretty well-known fact now that Dubai police has got one of the best car fleets in the world. The cars in their collection range from the super luxurious Bentley Bentayga to high-speed machines like the Buggati Veyron. Though various police forces in the world have been adding supercars to their fleet like Italy and Abu Dhabi, the Dubai cops beat them all with their mind-blowing collections of cars.
