Using the Bugatti supercar, which has a top speed of 407 kmph, Dubai Police beat the previous record of 360 kmph set by the US police patrol, which used a Lamborghini sports car.


The 16-cylinder Bugatti Veyron boasts 1,200 horsepower, allowing it to reach 100 kmph in just 2.5 seconds.


A delegation from the Guinness Book of World Records met the Dubai Police chief, Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Merri, on Monday and handed him the certificate.


Dubai Police added the Bugatti Veyron to its fleet with a view to strengthen the security in important tourism spots, such as the Burj Khalifa.


Bugatti Veyron is another feather in the cap of Dubai Police, whose fleet of luxury sports cars also include models such as McLaren MP4-12C, Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari FF, Mercedes SLS AMG, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin One-77, Nissan GTR and BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
