Brabus Mercedes-Benz B63S Widestar Dubai Police
TUNE IT! SAFE! has been promoting safe, responsible tuning in Germany since 2005. To date the concept behind the initiative has been a genuine success story. Conducted under the aegis of the German Ministry for Transport, Construction and Urban Development and sponsored by the Association of Automobile Tuners and numerous partners from industry, as well as other organisations and institutions TUNE IT! SAFE! aims to promote greater awareness of safety among tuners and to provide important educational advice. The Dubai Police is now to bring this successful concept to the UAE. The launch will take place at the Dubai International Motor Show, to be held from 5 to 9 November 2013 in the Dubai World Trade Center.
In Dubai too, the central element of the TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative is a legally and safely tuned police vehicle. Tuning company BRABUS is to provide the Dubai Police with a B63S - 700 WIDESTAR based on the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG for this purpose. This high-performance power off-roader with 515 kW / 700 hp symbolises the fact that safe automobile tuning and driving pleasure are closely linked and need not be mutually exclusive. This initiative is welcomed by the forces of law and order, which is why the Dubai Police will also use the BRABUS upgraded G-Class from Mercedes-Benz to do duty on the streets of the city.
Dubai Police provides an important educational service with the police vehicle
The legally and safely tuned vehicle will enable the Dubai police to provide some important public information on the streets of the city. As in Germany, where TUNE IT! SAFE! has established itself as an information platform for all things relating to tuning, sporty automobile accessories and general traffic safety, the initiative aims to raise awareness in Dubai, so that safety is not forgotten when it comes to automobile tuning.
In the BRABUS B63S - 700 WIDESTAR, the Dubai Police is taking delivery of a high-performance power off-roader with a 515 kW / 700 hp 5.5 litre V8 biturbo engine. This enables the all-wheel drive police vehicle to reach a top speed of 240 km/h, sprinting to 100 km in just 4.9 seconds. In visual terms, the TUNE IT! SAFE!-campaign vehicle attracts attention for the exciting WIDESTAR wide version and its 23 inch BRABUS Platinum Edition monoblock forged wheels. The BRABUS Dynamic Ride Control suspension offers the perfect symbiosis of superior driving comfort and dynamic handling.
The TUNE IT! SAFE! police vehicle will makes its international debut at the Dubai International Motor Show, from 5 to 9 November 2013. Here the Dubai Police, sponsor BRABUS and the Association of Automobile Tuners will also present the TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative. Visitors to exhibition stand CC2-1 at the Dubai World Trade Center will find out all about safe and responsible tuning.
