There's a Raging Bull now rampaging through the streets of the oil-rich emirate of Dubai on the lookout for bad guys. The Dubai police force has just picked up a Lamborghini Aventador for a cool $550,000, and it's sporting the force's slick green-and-white color scheme.
With some 691-horsepower on tap, the Aventador screams from 0-to-60 mph in a blistering 2.8 seconds and flies through the quarter mile in just 10.6 seconds at 133.9 mph, according to Motor Trend's testing, on to its 217-mph top speed - more than fast enough to chase down just about anything on the road short of the fastest superbikes.
Although it would be more than capable of catching even the speediest speeders, reports emanating from the emirate indicate that the car (which we're sure police officers will be tripping over themselves to get a shift in) will be used primarily for road security and public relations functions in high-class districts like the Burj Khalifa, considered the Beverly Hills of the Middle East.
Apparently the force isn't done with its buying spree. We hear there may be a Ferrari joining the force in addition to the Aventador and a Camaro SS, which is already on duty and chasing down Dubai's can't drive 55 crowd.
