This Lamborghini Urus is Dubai Police’s new runabout

While police forces across the UK might use more humble hatchbacks and vans, over in Dubai, it’s a bit different, as the city’s police force recently took delivery of a £200,000 Lamborghini Urus Performante.

It’s the latest collaboration between Lamborghini’s Dubai dealership and the local police, with an example of the firm’s Aventador supercar previously on its fleet, along with various other exotica from Ferrari, Bentley and McLaren.

The Performante is the most extreme version of Lamborghini’s Urus SUV, which is a popular choice in the region known for its wealth. Dubai Police has already had a standard version of the performance SUV on its fleet since 2022.

It’s not just a stunt car, either, with the Urus Performante equipped for service with its police livery and 360-degree blue LED lighting. Inside, it features an armoured gun box and a special compartment in the boot for storing equipment, including an on-board defibrillator.

One thing that hasn’t changed is what’s under the bonnet, with the Urus Performante using a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 producing a huge 657bhp and 850Nm of torque. That allows for a 0-60mph time of just 3.1 seconds and a 190mph top speed.

Paolo Sartori, regional head of Lamborghini in the Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted to continue our collaboration with Dubai Police, supporting them in their crucial public safety mission.

“Following our delivery of a Urus to the force in 2022, this new Performante edition will be used to carry out a range of public duties and, above all, will help enhance the city’s security and safety, with this initiative further demonstrating our brand’s longstanding presence here in the UAE.”

This latest Urus was handed over to the police at a special ceremony at the Dubai Air Show last year, coinciding with with Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary celebrations, though information and pictures have only now been shown.
