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.
I am launching this new Christmas category with this great commercial by AMG. I have already discussed the SLS GT3 AMG on TheAdsGarage (click here to access the post). I really liked this advert, a very simple and nice way to wish all of the AMG fans a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year 2013. For this commercial, a part was added to the great 6.3 V8 SLS GT3 engine, a part that makes all the difference. The AMG team have been working hard to make sure it will fit on the big V8. Watch the video and find out!
A few days ago Mercedes revealed its all brand new SLS AMG GT3 45th Anniversary edition model. I just love the “anniversary editions” sports cars they always have amazing features. Most of the times, the features added to the car transforms it into a collection car, not a “better to drive version” of the production model. This SLS AMG GT3 is a perfect example. Would you be able to drive this version of the SLS in your every days life? I dough it. For this 45th anniversary, the AMG team worked on a race edition of the SLS model. They mostly developed the aerodynamics. This edition is much lighter than the road version. It features a huge rear spoiler, a roll cage and other aerodynamic parts.
The interior is completely optimized to minimize weight. A big number of the luxury features have been replaced by carbon fiber race like buttons. Only 5 of these monsters will be build. They will be completely hand made and delivered by the AMG team directly to the lucky customers. Regarding the engine, the SLS GT3 will feature the normal 6.3 liters V8 that is available in the SLS AMG model.
