A picture was shown off on the service’s Twitter feed, with the caption: “Latest Dubai Police patrols, now at your service.” It was widely re-tweeted with the hashtag “#onlyinDubai”.

Local media suggested the £260,000 car, which has a V12 engine, a maximum speed of 217mph and accelerates from 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds, would be more used as a marketing device than as a standard patrol car.

The city’s police chief, Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, is one of the more public relations-aware officials of the region, and is closely tied to the ruling family, with its vision for the city as an international playground for the wealthy.

However, the car is being shown off at the same time as the police are in the middle of a campaign to curb the wilder excesses of the city’s largely young, male, drivers, who frequently use the United Arab Emirates desert motorways as a racetrack.
