Abu Dhabi’s Newest Police Car Costs $3.4 Million Dollars!
In Abu Dhabi, you can’t run from the police.
Not when the local police force just picked up a Lykan Hypersport.
Made by W Motors it’s powed by a 3.8-liter Porsche flat-six and makes 770 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. With a 0-60 mph time of just 2.8 seconds it boasts a top speed of 240 mph – making it one of the fastest cars anywhere in the world.
So what does all that cost? A ludicrous $3.4 million, or roughly the price of two (yes, TWO) Bugatti Veyrons!
You might also remember it from the recent Furious 7 film, where it played a staring role, jumping from skyscraper to skyscraper in Dubai. And what a better location considering it’s the world’s first supercar to come from the Middle East.
Created by W Motors (which relocated from Lebanon to the Emirates shortly after launching), the Lykan HyperSport is touted as the first Middle Eastern supercar, and also featured prominently in Fast & Furious 7.
It boasts a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six delivering 740 horsepower, and can reach 62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 245 mph.
Now, it has been revealed as Abu Dhabi Police Department’s latest vehicle.
It has also received a ‘robocop’ upgrade with cameras made by ekin.
‘Lykan HyperSport, one of the world’s fastest super cars is equipped with ekin Patrol, thus becomes the smartest car in the world and is transformed into a ‘Robocop’,’ it said.
‘ekin Patrol is capable of reading license plates of moving and stopping cars and monitors the speed of surrounding cars even on oncoming traffic.
‘It is also capable of recognizing faces at the highest speeds.
