Dubai Police releases a new Breathtaking Video showing off the fastest Police Car Fleet in the World!

Dubai Police

Dubai Police continue to remind the world of having the fastest police car fleet in the world through a new breathtaking video.

The video shows a night chase carried out by the Dubai police cars on public roads, before the main task, namely to add a distinctive landmark on the city visited by millions of tourists from all over the world every year. It is noteworthy that the Dubai police began to form an ultra fleet with the superior Italian car Ferrari FF followed later on by each of the Lamborghini Aventador, the Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes SLS, Aston Martin One 77, Audi R8 and Nissan GT ATR, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Camaro SS, Ford Mustang, Mercedes G Class Brabus, Mercedes DSL, the Bugatti Veyron, McLaren and lowpass 4-12 C and the Chevrolet Impala.

One of the latest cars that joined the Dubai Police are the Lexus RC F and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Next-Gen Nissan R36 GT-R Arriving in 2018

There’s been a lot of talk about Nissan’s plans for its next-generation GT-R, the R36, with senior execs recently confirming a hybrid powertrain for the car and Nissan also giving us a taste of some new design themes with its stunning Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo. Now the automaker’s top designer, Shiro Nakamura, has revealed when we might see the R36 GT-R.

Speaking with Top Gear, Nakamura said the car’s arrival won’t be until 2018… at the earliest. This means we’re unlikely to see the car on sale until the 2019 model year, giving the current R35 GT-R a 10-year lifespan.

Nakamura explained that sales of the current GT-R remain healthy and that more updates are coming. In fact, we’ve already seen spy shots of an updated model, which we’re expecting to be introduced for the 2016 model year.

The GT-R is still unmatched when it comes to performance per dollar, with the $150k GT-R NISMO model capable of lapping the ‘Ring in just 7:08.679, which is slower only than the times set by million-dollar supercars like the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. Incredibly, Nakamura said the engineering team believes it can extract even more performance from the current setup.

Finally, Nakamura promised that the R36 GT-R would remain a front-engined coupe with 2+2 seating. As for its styling, he said some elements from the front and rear of the Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo may be borrowed.

That Was the Lebanese Hyper-car “Lykan Hypersport” In The Fast And Furious 7 Trailer!

LykanHypersport

Maybe you thought it was a Zenvo in the Furious 7 Super Bowl trailer. Maybe you thought it was a Marussia B2. Maybe you were really high and thought it was a Youbian Puma. Nope, it was Lykan Hypersport!

It is worth mentioning that this car was manufactured by the Lebanese company (W Motors), a Dubai based firm. It’s a 6 Cylinder Turbo Engine with 750 HP.

The Lebanese company is now working on a new generation with 20 more HP.

The super Arab Lykan Hypersport car accelerates from 0 to 60 (100 Km/h) in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 395 Km/h!

CES 2015: Trying to Crash a BMW? Think Again!

High above the Las Vegas Strip, BMW’s CES setup looks innocent enough: a pair of small i3s and a smattering of various other BMW models parked off in the distance of a parking garage rooftop. In reality, the company was about to freak me out.

First, I got a glimpse of a collision avoidance system using an array of fairly well-concealed external sensors on one of the i3s. BMW set up a bunch of big, soft blocks dressed to look like walls and other hazards — it was a little Super Mario-esque, come to think of it — and told me to punch the gas in their direction.

That’s a tough command to process, and it took me a second to work up the courage. Tentatively, I approached the first couple of blocks in the car; I got so close that I was sure I’d touch them, but at the last moment, I heard a soft “beep” and felt a moderate application of the brakes that stopped me with probably no more than an inch to spare (BMW is quick to note that the sensors they’re using are next-gen and very accurate — these aren’t the ultrasonic parking sensors you see on today’s bumpers).

BMW

The system works in reverse, too, and on the sides — I tried turning too sharply at a corner in such a way that a normal car would’ve taken a huge, expensive gash across the doors. This i3, though, with its enhanced instincts of self-preservation, slowed to a halt before it could take any damage. The system is designed to still permit you to park in a tight spot without getting in the way; I tried parallel parking with no issue.

Next, I tried the company’s automatic valet system in another i3, which uses basically the same set of high-definition sensors to map the environment around the car. We’ve seen a variety of self-parking systems from automakers at CES over the years, but this one seemed to be the most polished: it doesn’t require any special equipment or beacons in the parking garage, it’ll just autonomously find a spot to park without anyone in the vehicle. It’s initiated using an app that BMW has designed for Samsung’s Gear S smartwatch, where you can see the status of your car (charge level, for instance) and tap a command to go park. Slowly — like, really slowly, 5 mph or so — the i3 lurched forward on its own, seeking out an open space. It rounded a corner where the other BMWs were parked, found a slot next to an M4 convertible, and eased its way in.

The app can summon the car, too. I rode alone in the passenger seat for this leg of the journey, which was really eerie — there are no words to describe the feeling of sitting by yourself in a car that’s slowly moving and turning on its own. You can tell it’s designed to be super careful: it moves no faster than brisk walking pace and has the same anti-collision sensors I’d just experienced in another heart-pounding demo. Still, you’re at the mercy of a computer, which is hard to get over.

BMW

I returned to the anti-collision demo one last time, where BMW staff encouraged me to be way more aggressive. So I was: I drove the i3 like I’d stolen it, but I couldn’t get it to hit anything no matter how hard I tried. Any steering angle, any gas pedal input, the car just didn’t care. It’s an additional margin of safety that I’m guessing will eliminate a lot of expensive fender benders in a few years.

Both of these systems are basically branches of the same R&D effort happening inside the company — autonomous driving, which BMW still believes is a few years away. The sensors required for this level of accuracy still need to get smaller and easier to integrate into the car’s bodywork. It’s encouraging, though: if a car is tuned into its environment well enough to consistently stop a driver from bumping into things, it can probably stop itself when there’s no one in the driver’s seat.
