W Motors Ghiath Smart Patrol: Dubai’s Latest, Most Functional Police Exotic

Billed by its makers as “the most advanced police vehicle in the world”, UAE-based auto maker W Motors announced that they will be providing 400 Ghiath Smart Patrol police SUVs to the Dubai Police force, at a cost of US $54.4-million.

With the first 10 vehicles already delivered, and the rest to be delivered over the next 5-years, the Ghiath is set to become a regular sight on Dubai roads, but is nevertheless already somewhat familiar to keen observers, in it proportions. Based on the Nissan Patrol, the Ghiath’s appearance is a more aggressive take on the Japanese manufacturer’s popular SUV, and features slim deep-set headlights, more pronounced surface creases and jutting bumpers, not to mention new alloy wheels, front and rear nudge bars and of course, Dubai Police livery, as worn by the their much-publicized fleet of exotic supercars.

That said, and despite the Ghiath’s provenance being that of a supercar maker, it is however a functional daily police vehicle developed by the brand’s special projects division, rather than a show piece. Festooned with plenty of police lights, badges and decals, the Ghiath is a high tech police vehicle that is equipped with a 360-degree deployable camera, 8 exterior surveillance cameras, facial and license plate recognition system, integrated 16-inch central screen, powerful control centre-linked onboard computer, dispatcher-connected android tablet, driver behaviour camera, boot compartment for rescue and safety equipment, and a custom drone box with an advanced drone on board.
