Because a Ferrari FF and a Lamborghini Aventador (for more details click here) weren’t flamboyant enough, the Dubai Police department just invested in a 2 million dollars Aston Martin One-77. This Aston is only available in 77 units worldwide and is powered by a massive 7.3 liters V12 delivering a minimum of 750hp and 750 Nm of torque. A gorgeous piece of Aston Martin’s accomplishment. You would probably think that the Dubai Police Department would be more than satisfied with these 3 supercars, well you are wrong.
They added to the team a Bentley Continental GT equipped with a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8, 500-hp and 487 lb-ft of torque and a Mercedes SLS armed with a 6.3L V8 engine delivering 563hp/ 479lb-ft of torque. All of those later comers are shown in the video below equipped with a police siren and exposed in the famous Dubai Mall (which happens to be the biggest mall in the world) This whole supercar shopping added up to a total of around 3,5 million dollars worth of Super Police Cars. What do they need them for? NOTHING! These supercars are just used to cruise around in the city center giving a glamorous and rich image to Dubai. Dubai Police Chief said that the public’s “amazing” reaction for the Aventador police car convinced him to add further exotics to the fleet. The Dubai Police department has officially the fastest police cars squad in the world.
The first Vanquish Centenary edition was revealed yesterday at the top of the 1000-foot-tall Burj Al Arab hotel. How did it get there? By Helicopter!! The $300K special edition and first of a series of 100 Aston Martin Centenary, flew attached to a helicopter and landed on the helipad of the famous hotel. This one of a kind event was attended by UAE dignitaries and Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. Dubai is made for these types of crazy and extravagant events. Where else in the world would you see a $300K Aston Martin attached to a helicopter flying 1000 foot above the ground?!

“A Century of exceptional sports cars is distilled into a bold, new breed of Aston Martin: Vanquish” By Astonmartin.com. This new breed is going to be called the AM310 Vanquish. Aston martin confirmed that this masterpiece is gonna feature a V12, 6.0liters engine delivering 565hp and 457lb-ft of torque. This new Vanquish is stunning I loved the small carbon fiber details on the front squirt and other parts of the car.
The melody of that V12 is mind blowing. Even though the ad is not so special showing only the interior and exterior details of the car, the music used is just staggering. It is simply the roaring of this new AM310 Vanquish.
