Dubai police add $450,000 Lamborghini to their fleet

Dubai is a city known for its excesses, but this story might make even the wealthiest sheik feel a little humility. Riiiight.

The Dubai police department has added a $450,000 green and white Lamborghini Aventador to patrol the streets of their oil-rich city and sun-dried highways.  The force had announced plans to upgrade their fleet of patrol cars but nobody knew they would be using Knight Rider's K.I.T.T — to which it has been compared — as a prototype.

The sleek Italian sports car's 700-horsepower engine can go from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds while topping out at 217 mph. It is widely considered the most expensive car in the world.

Car chases through the desert just got a lot more fun but ... where do the cops put the bad guys once they've outrun them?
