Dubai’s Ambulance Service Add A Nissan GT-R And C7 Corvette Grand Sport

The Dubai police force is known around the world for having some of the world’s fastest, most expensive and, let’s be real here, tourist attraction-worthy performance cars in its fleet. As it turns out, the city’s ambulance service also has some impressive rides and recently picked up two more.

Social media postings from the Dubai ambulance service reveal that it now owns a Nissan GT-R and a C7 Chevrolet Corvette. Not just any Corvette either but the potent Grand Sport model. You know, just in case you need to get to a hospital really quickly.

Now, you may be wondering how these two-door sports cars can double as ambulances? Well, they can’t. Consequently, they will be used predominantly for patrols in tourist areas and turn up at various sporting event making them more of a promotional tool than anything else.

The Nissan GT-R and Corvette Z06 will serve some practical purpose. Both are equipped with CPR equipment and oxygen cylinders as well as road traffic-specific resuscitation equipment if they’re ever called to an emergency. Dubai’s ambulance service says response times are cut in half using the vehicles.

Other performance-focused cars have been used by the service in the past, including a pair of Ford Mustangs, a Dodge Challenger, and a Lotus Evora.

Dubai’s police fleet is routinely adding and retiring exotics from its fleet. At one stage, it had an Aston Martin One-77, Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari FF, Nissan GT-R, McLaren 12C, Lamborghini Aventador, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Brabus G63 AMG, Audi R8 V10, a Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG, and others.

  • ok, i’m used to the police having fawncy things like this but the ambulance system?

    • Porkopolis

      In a big, congested place like Dubai, it it gets a medic onsite faster than the regular ambulance, it makes sense.

      • ok, but a GTR and a Corvette? why not like a motorcycle?

  • This kinda makes more sense for places that can’t be reached or landed on by a Heli
