Oil rich UAE’s Dubai Police department add James Bond’s Aston Martin Vantage to luxury fleet.
The Vantage joins Dubai police’s Ferrari, a Bugatti Veyron, Porsches, Bentleys, McLaren and Mercedes-AMGs.
Just three months ago, Dubai Police added the latest Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series SUV to its impressive fleet.
Aston Martin Vantage has become the latest luxury sports car to join Dubai Police Department’s already impressive fleet of turbocharged and expensive patrol vehicles.
The heartbeat of Aston Martin’s sports car range, which is set to star in the upcoming James Bond’s movie, No Time To Die, joins Dubai police’s Ferrari, a Bugatti Veyron, Porsches, Bentleys, McLaren and Mercedes-AMGs.
“It is an honour to have an Aston Martin join Dubai Police’s fleet of supercars and the Vantage is the perfect model to make such a statement – purity at its finest, a hint of aggression, and engineering that pushes it to upwards of 300kph,” said Ramzi Atat, Head of Marketing and Communications in the Mena region at Aston Martin.
“We are grateful to the team at Dubai Police, and especially Lt Gen Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief, for bringing this partnership to life.”
Dubai Police Aston Martin Vantage wears a custom ’77’ number plate, which pays homage to the UAE’s seven emirates as well as the world-renowned super spy’s code number of 007.
Powering the Vantage is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo, churning out 503 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque, and allowing a 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 314kph (195 mph).
The eye-catching Aston Martin Vantage will be on display for the first time alongside other Dubai Police’s stunning models at Expo 2020 Dubai next month.
Just three months ago, Dubai Police added the latest Toyota Land Cruiser 300 Series SUV to its fleet, a vehicle that was unveiled in June and that is yet to reach dealerships.
