Dubai Police has added new high-performance sports car to its already flashy fleet - a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S.

The powerful vehicle joins the Lamborghinis, Porsches, Bentleys among others which already grace the roads of the UAE's biggest city.

The last vehicle to join the elite crew was a Maserati GranTurismo, announced earlier this year.

All the cars in the police fleet are fast, but the GT 63 S will be able to compete with the best of what the officers already have.

Despite its outwardly sedate appearance, it has a 4-litre V8 engine, which will produce 630hp and ensure the vehicle can get from 0-100kph in an eye-watering 2.9 seconds. Pedal to the metal, the car should reach 315kph.

Keep an eye out for it, and just hope it isn't in your rear view mirror with its lights flashing.
