The continuously growing Dubai Police fleet has gained a new member this week as they have taken delivery of a BMW i8.

It was only a couple of days ago when we found out the police authorities in Abu Dhabi got a Rolls-Royce Phantom and now Dubai has replied by adding a BMW i8. It joins a generous range of supercars including the mighty Bugatti Veyron, but also the rare Aston Martin One-77 and a Lamborghini Aventador.

A recent addition was a Lexus RC-F while previous purchases include a McLaren MP4-12C, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Ferrari FF, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG, Brabus B63S-700 Widestar, Bentley Continental, Nissan GT-R, Mercedes-Benz SLS and for some reason, a Renault Twizy.

None of these high-end automobiles are actually used as police cars as the authorities in Dubai just show them off at important touristic attractions across UAE's most populous city.
