Dubai Police has added arguably its most impressive supercar to its fleet – the Bugatti Veyron, the fastest street-legal production car in the world. The car was unveiled in its livery on the police force’s official Twitter account, which stated: “#Dubai_Police launches its newest Super Patrol Car – Bugatti Veyron.”
The Veyron is the latest in a growing list of supercars in the Dubai Police arsenal to catch criminals. Last year, cops unveiled a McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari FF, a Lamborghini, an Aston Martin One-77, Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes SLS. The first supercar added to the fleet was a Lamborghini while cops in the emirates also drive the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Kia Mohave.
The Bugatti Veyron is a mid-engined sports car, designed and developed by the Volkswagen Group and manufactured in Molsheim, France by Bugatti Automobiles. The Super Sport version of the Veyron is the fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph). It was named Car of the Decade (2000–2009) by the BBC television programme Top Gear.

Another winter storm is moving through the US Midwest and Northeast. As a result of this, several port, rail and container yard facilities have either closed or have limited operations. Delays to cargo moving to or through this geography should be expected.
As of February 5, the following locations are impacted by adverse weather conditions. Please note that terminals will continue to assess conditions as the weather impact changes.
NY/NJ – Maher Terminal – Closed and extending free time one day; APMT – Delayed opening; Global – open; APL CY – Closed
Indianapolis – CY – Closed
Open but with restricted operations due to snow and ice: Cincinnati CY, Columbus CY, Cleveland CY, Detroit CY, Louisville CY, Pittsburg CY, St. Louis CY, Kansas City CYs, Omaha CY
The series of winter storms has resulted in rail car imbalances that are negatively impacting cargo movement via rail throughout the US and Canada. Additionally, truck power has been extremely hard hit by the series of storms and facility closures, and line offices continue to operate with reduced staffing levels.
Shipping lines are working with their venders to minimize the impact of these extreme weather conditions on the movement of cargo. However, please plan for several days delay for cargo movement in or through ports in the US Northeast coast.
We are working with customers on the impact to specific shipments, and will advise further as soon as we are able.
