There Are Police Cars, And There Are Police Cars

In Merrie Olde England, the police tend to use, er, practical vehicles - like the lowly Vauxhall Astra diesel. Gas is expensive in Europe, you know. In the USA, there is a bit of a variety, including souped-up sporty models in some jurisdictions. In Dubai, which may as well be the planet Saturn for all it resembles most of the rest of the world, they use cars like the Bentley Continental GT, the Lamborghini Aventador, and most recently the 7.3-liter V12-powered Aston Martin One-77. Nice, eh? I guess when you have gasoline that is super cheap, and the money that accompanies prodigious oil production, you can do that kind of stuff.
