Dubai Police has just taken delivery of a Lambo Aventador costing 420,000 euros — about $550,000.
Yes they have the money however, no need for these kind of vehicles, after all any1 can be found in the GCC without a high speed chase...hahahahhha...what a waste of money
WOW!!!! I'm a Baltimore City cop (Baltimore, MD USA), our patrol cars are literally falling apart. I think it maybe time to apply for the Doha PD. That is if they have female patrol officers :)
That Lambo car will be stuck in traffic just like the rest. High speed chase in Doha is impossible. This car should be followed by a tow when they try to cruise inside the Industrial Area.
i'd rather go with the Evo. unless the Gallardo cop car will chase the hot car in QRC. :D lol
Looks like something from robocop
were is dis car?
Out of all Qatar’s desperate attempts, what a pathetic way trying to be noticed on the international scene especially in those hard financial times.
I’d rather see them invest that money in making the roads better, especially that some of the roads have holes and ditches in them enough to put your car out of service permanently.
Also if they do something about the traffic that would be something to look forward to.
At least then they will be able to use this machine…
sure this car will be drive by 3 STAR (Zabit) only
masterchief I think thats Q tel oasis in mesaieed
anybody knows if this car is on display and where it can be seen ?
I'm not exactly getting what you mean by this question?
They are the same size of any human who rides in this same car or any other.
Can Qatari police mmen fit in that small car????
niceeee...... only doha.
Everybody is right everybody is wrong, it depend where you stand
of when QGPC (offshore, now QP) bought a very well equipped ambulance for Halul Island. It even had fully equipped maternity facilities. Work that one out.
So what? In Germany the highway patrol drives Porsche Carrera! Not one, 200 or more.
This is just for show from lamborgini dealer
They are not goin to use this car.After complete the show it will return to show room
this country is such a joke. the world laughs at the ridiculous actions of this place. so glad I am on the way out. qatar really is a joke internationally
"Everything in this book may be wrong." Illusions: The Adventures of The Reluctant Messiah by Richard Bach
The Next Shoot of Tokyo Drift is at Doha... with Those cars it's a preperation !
When the very large sum of money for this lamborgini was signed off had the Police dept just had a double matinee of the "Dukes of Hazzard" and "Too Fast too Furious"?..
Picture this if you will?...
One large fast land Cruiser violating traffic and rules all over the place, then, one very fast and expensive lamborginui taking chase. The Land Cruiser then
A: Goes up a curb and off road or
B: flys over speed bumps?
A: One lamgborgini getting away!
B: A really embarrassed traffic control cop crawling over a speed bump at a snails pace.
Brilliant, well done , money well spent!
If the police start to chase me in this car I'll just drive down any street in Najma.
There's no way they can follow me in that car over the pot holes and speed bumps.
That car would be useless on any road other than the corniche.
...............thtz so soooo cool :) .........
be careful in driving peeps...too fast..too furious for this Police car! You better get ready..whheew =)
Would have been much better if there was an upgradation in the cops' behaviours.
my dear friend Happy Happy it was page three i am pasting the link for 1st page
Just imagine there was a police chase in Industrial area ??? he would come back after the chase with Lamborghini spare parts in his hands !!! ...hahahaaaaaaaa !!
Qatar sure does know how to waste its money!
so this is it... now...
the next project to fund with is...
to place a display lot at every round-about's center....
useless but AWESOME
Im the one and only
wat if there were any high chases, the police wont be able to arrest them there's hardly any space already in those tiny pathetic lambos
nice show qatar police :D
Moving on is simple; it's what you leave behind that makes it so difficult .
if it has plastic seats.
You are absolutely correct fadi in six months thousands, and imagine 18 years how many million violations i have came across
Now we are talking.
maybe they thought they cud use it in high speed chases or sorts. But then again, if thts what they want, isnt it better to have a police helicopter of sorts. Ive seen those in the movies.Anyhuu,,,its still a nice photo oppurtunity for the cops i guess
the BLUE pill or the RED pill ??
My point is....There're are no pavements. The roads are full of potholes. The police here are...well not too effective...shall we say. Yet they have purchased a Lamborghini or, maybe it was a donation, in which case it should have been sold off and the money given to a worthy cause. I can recall a couple of years ago a Lamborghini was confiscated from a drug dealer in Bulgaria. The car was then re-painted in Police colours and used against the bad guys. OK, chances are, as I said above, a 'normal' everyday cop on the street never got to see the inside. However, it did make a point.
only one ?????????????
I don't see your point. A rich country with wealthy income has a couple of these, what's the big deal?
You can't teach experience...
I completely agree with must try harder
It’s not like this is a rare piece from Mars. If you want to enjoy colorful ones, go visit their room down at Sadd area.
What a complete and utter waste of money!!!
There are no roads in Qatar that this vehicle is good for. It is a show of wealth and nothing more. The chances are the 'normal' everyday cop will never get to see the inside of this car.
The people who thought of this should be sacked. The people who signed to agree the purchase should be sacked. Traffic violations happen constantly, often in front of the police and they never do a thing. Or rather, I have never seen them do a thing. The police should be held to account for what they do, or rather don't do! Then add this expence. How wasteful. I was a police officer in the uk. I can't even begin to imagine the public outcry if something like this had been purchased.
But still guys they got a lambo and i guess they had EVO also.........
welll hav u seen the exhibition going on opposite to civil defence department..........There u will find it....
AAWARA WHERE CAN I SEE THIS CAR....??
thats awsome.. lucky police
let's buy an italian sports car when a stinger and a couple of radios would do the same job and avoid high-speed chases
I have a "thing" for police cars..:) I tend to like to take pictures with them all over the world.
Haven't done that in Doha yet!
Tats a Beauty Piece!!
I guess tat would be used mostly on Losail Highway by this officer for Racing purpose more then patroling....:)
Well said.. The Italian Police have three lambos at present. The American Police use souped up Corvettes and similar... So why not Qatar indeed..
This car is speedy but officers won’t be able to monitor drivers with cell phones, seatbelts...etc, since it’s too low. Also, it'll get killed on bumpy roads and flying speed bumps.
Nevertheless, many parts of the world do have those fancy police cars, why not Qatar too?
everybody just jealous... the police has right to have one lambo..
Govt’s height of Extravagance …
I AM DYING TO 'EM CHASE CRUISERS ON SPEED HUMPS AND ALL. IF I AS WITH THE CRUISER I HEAD FOR THE HUMPS AND THE BAD TERRAIN..I WOULD MAKE THEM POLICE LOOK LIKE A HELL OF SCUMBAGS..
YA RIGHT BUDDY! YA RIGHT..
I SECOND THE MOTION..NOT ONLY THAT! HOW ABOUT A SEMINAR FOR AN ACCEPTABLE DRIVING MANNERS.
that's Awsume man ... koool
they are just catching up with all the rest of the EU who had implemented that years ago..nothing amusing..they are actually late at that..
money 4 nothing. The same money for public services like Karwa or Public transportation. They should optimize the money for the public strucure.
a month from now, there will be an add "Lamborghini Cars for SALE" , LOL... Lambo owner will start selling, cos it is not a "special" car anymore....
"An eye for an eye, and soon the whole world is blind." - Mahatma Gandhi
Qatar needs more Karwa Taxis not police cars..
it's a waste of money for a show.. they could have bought three or four karwa cabs for a price of one fancy lambo car.
head turner? yes! but is it really worth it? nah!!! monitor youtube within days and you'll see that lambo with screaming tires and smoking in some parking lot here in Doha. what a waste of money!
=Dura Lex Sed Lex=
I'd like to see it chase a landcruiser over some speed bumps or rough terrain. The nose would get stuck!
and now they gonna catch more illegal parkers! hahaha!
thats just pure p i m p . . .
this lamborghini gallardo will not work in my area of old ghanim where road potholes are wide and deep...sigh...
wow lambo for police patrol car, that too with tinted glasses, nice very nice :)
Good Fortune always comes knocking at your door...when you are sh*tting in the toilet!! :)
guys...its more easier to escape whn lamborghini is chasing..!! use your brains...& JUMP THE NEAREST FOOTPATH TO CROSS THE ROAD...best if you have 4WD yourself..!! LOOOOOOOOL....
"Before God we are all equally wise ' and equally foolish" - Albert Einstein
wow... now there will be a huge pile of line up for those who wants to be a police...
They won't use it for one reason, have you seen the police here?
There are only a two types of police in Qatar:
-The old Sudani ones who just work for the money and are very religious, they wont drive this.
-The Young Qatari ones who just work because they failed in school, they will crash this in less than a day.
Haha, what a waste on money.
ACTUALLY GUYS, THE CAR WILL NOT REALLY USE IT IN ROAD IT JUST FOR SHOW I BORN IN QATAR AND I NEVER HERE ABOUT BEFORE Police chase , THEY JUST Take your car number and make the Violation .
no , i think this is near sealine.. mesaeed area..
tEaCh Me RuLeS, i'Ll TeAcH hOw To BrEaK iT ..
Thats really cool...Good work Qatar....but 4x4 would have been more practical....But any change is good...
The Cop's offices too needs some new look.....
Is this thing being displayed near the Fire/Civil Defence R/A....there seems to be some action....
4WD Jap Turbo car would have been much more practical. Think EVO.
"katas ng qatar"
Na it won't do anything just for show.
Interestingly someone told me that in Italy, I think Lamborghini gifted a car to the Italian police as well. If I'm not mistaken they use it to transport hearts!
Are you being serious??
"at least police corruption here, i believe, is zero."
Perhaps it is sarcasm???
"A Wise Man knows what he does not know!"
that's cool.. at least police corruption here, i believe, is zero.
from the last photo, it looks like a guy was trying to pierce its wheels... lolz...
Is this here?? Man they would never be able to have a high speed chase because of all the traffic here! LOL! What a waste of money!
with these 'fast & furious drivers' of Qatar? Will we see any car chase soon? LOL!

I’m absolutely ready to work as a part time officer just as of now..:)
Fadi, good point there!
wow! police men having their dreams come true!!! dont think they can afford a lamborgini on their pay!!
then you must think twice before you get into a high speed chase situation..
HAHAHA HAHAHAHHH HAHAHAH HAHHAHA
Dont ask me why im laughing!!!
Ive been in doha for 6 months, ive saw hundreds, say thousands of traffic violations, many of these violations were just next to police cars (they were land cruiser violations) and nothing happenned!!!
Its just more money spent, less effectivity!!!
uff.. lucky driver !!!
tEaCh Me RuLeS, i'Ll TeAcH hOw To BrEaK iT ..
