ABU DHABI – The last time you saw a Lykan HyperSport, Vin Diesel was driving it through a window of an Etihad Towers skyscraper in the movie Furious 7.
There’s always a sort of tussle between two police forces and it’s been about what supercar to buy. The Dubai and the Abu Dhabi police have shown us that the police too deserve the best cars in the world. After the Lexus RCF supercar was added to the the Dubai police fleet, the Abu Dhabi Police took delivery of a Rolls-Royce Phantom. Well now, they went a step ahead to buy the Lykan Hypersport.
Like all the other high-end cars that they’ve bought, this one too has earned them bragging rights and the car will be displayed at the most important touristic attractions of UAE.
The one bought by the Abu Dhabi Police is one of the seven units ever made and at a jaw-dropping price tag of $3.4 million. We’ve seen the car feature in the latest installment of Fast and Furious as well where it was seen with diamond-coated LED headlights.
Under the hood of the Lykan Hypersport is a RUF-developed twin-turbo, flat-six 3.7-liter engine which produces a massive 760bhp and develops 1000 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission and thanks to the quick power delivery reaches a 100km/h mark from a standstill in 2.8 seconds and tops out at 395 km/h.
From what we can notice it’s highly likely that there is an ongoing competition between the Dubai and the Abu Dhabi police on their respective collections. However, the Dubai police clearly have a lead in this as they have a Bugatti Veyron, an Aston Martin One-77, a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, a Ferrari FF, a BMW M6 GranCoupe, a Nissan GT-R, an Audi R8 and a Lamborghini Gallardo. They also have a Bentley Continental, Lexus RC F and a Renault Twizy.
One thing’s for sure though, people wouldn’t mind getting arrested in one of these for it’s not often that you get to drive to jail in a world of luxury.
