Remember how Dubai's police department uses a fleet of supercars as their cruisers? Now the flashy force has added another head-turning vehicle: A Scorpion 3 hoverbike built by Russian company Hoversurf.
…The police force aims to deploy its latest toy as a first-responder vehicle in hard-to-reach places, such as the middle of a traffic jam. Conveyed to a staging point, the Scorpion's 660-pound cargo capacity could carry an officer to a choke-point scene with aid before a Mercedes G-wagen or Bugatti Veyron could get through. The hoverbike also does standard drone duty with a range of up to six kilometers.
I'd love to see these here in New York City. Alas, this is the NYPD's latest vehicle.
