Dubai police show off new Ferrari

Dubai police on Thursday showed off a new Ferrari they will use to patrol the city state, hot on the heels of a Lamborghini which joined the fleet earlier.

The car sporting the green and white of Dubai police was unveiled at the foot of the Burj al-Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It will be used by women police to patrol tourist areas.

The introduction of luxury Italian cars to the police force is being seen as a sign of economic recovery in the Gulf emirate where a housing bubble burst in 2008.
