Dubai Police shows off its supercars (and a super SUV) in new video

If you didn’t know the coolest police cars in the world reside in Dubai, you probably haven’t been on the Internet lately.

The Dubai Police isn’t shy about flaunting its fleet of supercars, and it’s at it again with a video appropriately tagged “luxurious super patrol cars for a luxurious city.”

The video features many of Dubai’s exotic police cars, in green-and-white livery with lights flashing, cruising the streets of the city. Highlights include a Bugatti Veyron, Nissan GT-R, and even a Brabus-tuned Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

Of course, the Dubai cops didn’t shell out $1 million for a Veyron just to hand out speeding tickets.

Reportedly worth around $6.5 million, the Dubai Police supercar fleet is used for public relations. It’s a great way for the police to attract positive public attention, and to promote Dubai.

It’s hard to fault that logic, considering all of the attention these cars get from all over the world.

It’s also too bad other police departments don’t have the money to show off with lavish supercar fleets of their own. That’s not a very responsible use of taxpayer money, after all, no matter how cool a Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc. with police lights looks.

Toyota teases new TRD Pro ‘off-road beast’ for Chicago Auto Show
2020 Toyota TRD Pro teaser

The Toyota TRD Pro line adds genuine off-road capability to a handful of the Japanese automaker's vehicles, and the lineup is about to get a new addition. Toyota promises to bring a "new TRD Pro off-road beast" to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, as well as changes to the entire lineup for the 2020 model year. So which Toyota model will get the TRD treatment?

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck will also debut in Chicago, but the current Tacoma already has a TRD Pro variant. So a 2020 Tacoma TRD Pro doesn't exactly qualify as "new." Toyota's other truck, the Tundra, also has its own TRD Pro model, as does the 4Runner SUV. That leaves the Land Cruiser and Sequoia SUVs and RAV4 and Highlander crossovers as possible candidates.
