The oil-rich Middle Eastern country of Dubai has added a 700-hp Lamborghini Aventador to its police fleet to catch the luxury vehicles driven by wealthy scofflaws, reports Yahoo Autos.

The Aventador, which has been produced since 2011, replaced the Murcielago as the Italian luxury sportscar manufacturer's flagship vehicle. The Aventador is powered by Lamborghini's new 6.5-liter V12 engine and can reach 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds. It can reach a top speed of 217 mph.

Now that is what I call a hot pursuit. A few radios and stop sticks would have been a lot cheaper. But, then again, it is Dubai!

THE fastest car Ive ever seen was the CT. State Police using a Porsche.

I wonder if they have an exchange program.

I wonder if that light bar will stay on at 217 mph.
