The Dubai Police department has revealed its latest acquisition, an impressive Bugatti Veyron, which will be used to fight crime.

The Bugatti Veyron is getting a massive 8.0 liter W16 quad turbocharged engine under its hood, which is developing a total output of 1,001 HP (736 kW) and it has a peak torque of 1,250 Nm (922 lb-ft) of torque.
