From high-end exotics and real hypercars to some of the most exquisite SUVs out there, Dubai's Police fleet has them all. Well, almost all of them, as the offering is very vast and recently grew with another model: the Ferrari 12Cilindri.
An ode to the V12 engine, as its name clearly implies, the Ferrari 12Cilindri is the Prancing Horse's latest toy for big boys. It replaces the 812 series, which succeeded the F12berlinetta, and while the design has yet to grow on us compared to its sexy predecessors, at least it has the right oily bits to cater to any gearhead. After all, who doesn't love a great V12, right?

It is a naturally aspirated unit, too, with a 6.5-liter displacement, sporting several modifications, including titanium con rods for a reduced rotating mass, aluminum alloy pistons, a rebalanced and lightweight crankshaft, and several things that were inspired by Formula 1 cars. The front mid-engined supercar can scream its lungs out up to 9,500 rpm and features no forced induction or electric trickery, unlike what would've been one of its biggest rivals in the class, the Lamborghini Revuelto.

An 8-speed transmission delivers 818 horsepower (830 ps/610 kW) and 500 pound-foot (678 Nm) of torque to the wheels. The output is available at 9,250 rpm and the peak trust at 7,250 rpm, so the driver must really work that engine to obtain naught to sixty-two (0 to 100 kph) in 2.9 seconds. The Spider is one-tenth slower, and both versions of the Italian beast will run out of breath at over 211 mph (340 kph).

Ferrari says the 12Cilindri has a dry weight of pounds (1,560 kg), so it is certainly no lightweight contender. But then again, it never intended to be one. It has a 48.4-51.6% front-to-rear weight distribution, large brakes, 21-inch alloys wrapped in 275/35 front and 315/35 rear tires, and a fuel tank capacity of 24.3 gallons (92 liters).

This is probably the last naturally aspirated V12-powered Ferrari with no turbos or electric assistance, so it has all the premises to become a future collectible. It is probably a matter of time until we see one dressed in the Dubai Police livery. But why do we keep mentioning this? Because Aksyonov Nikita recently took to Behance to reveal a few renderings of the supercar dressed in Dubai Police livery.

The vehicle in question mixes a white body with a few green accents, sports the usual decals at the front sides and rear, and features a roof-mounted light bar. Additional upgrades would also include a police radio and other stuff required for this kind of job. We don't know about you, but we've always had a soft spot for the blue-blooded machines in the Dubai Police fleet, and we think the Ferrari 12Cilindri would make a great addition to the lineup.
