Known for its eclectic collection of supercars and SUVs, Dubai Police has now added an Audi RS e-tron GT electric sports car to its grand collection. Wrapped in a white and green Dubai Police livery, the Audi RS e-tron GT recently made its debut at the Arabian Travel Market conference in Dubai. Like the rest of the fleet, the RS e-tron GT will be used to patrol popular tourist destinations in the city, while also becoming an attraction in its own right.

The Audi RS e-tron GT will be the first electric sports car in the Dubai Police fleet. The car will bear a special ’28’ number plate to signify the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 28), which will be held in Dubai later this year. It is also very much in line with the theme of this year’s Arabian tourism market – sustainable development.

The performance of the Audi RS e-tron GT is impressive. Twin electric motors produce 637 horsepower and 830 Nm of peak torque. The electric sports car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. The all-electric offering includes an 84 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and can travel around 501 kilometers on a single charge.

The Dubai Police fleet of supercars has attracted as much attention as the Burj Khalifa, especially on social media. White and green supercars are worth checking out, from Aston Martins to Mercedes-AMGs and everything in between. While the RS e-tron GT is the first electric sports car to join the fleet, it’s not the first fully electric car. That distinction goes to the Hongqi E-HS9 electric SUV. China Power Products was added to stable in October last year.
