It's Dubai.

Since they have Aventador cop cars, that's actual an ambulance.

It's a commercial stunt.
The car was Heli-ported to the top of the Burj Al Arab 7(8?) stars hotel.
It's from Aston Martin, not Lotus.
It's the new Vanquish, not an Evora.
It's from january last year.

On a side note, Dubai cops dont really have supercars.
Dubai owns a large amount of exotic cars with cops livery, but their only purpose is to be displayed in malls, where tourist take pictures and share those around the world. A great markenting tool to promote Dubai. And when it comes to promoting Dubai, there's no limit on how much to spend.


Here's the Aston stunt :

They parked a Ferrari ff cop car in front of our hotel for an hour or 2. A bunch of people posed for pictures and then they moved in to the next hotel I assume. Strange culture

Dubai is definitely one-of-kind - here's the indoor skiing area (Ski Dubai) in the Mall of the Emirates and a Lamborghini cruising the beach area (when I was on a business trip in 2008). The real police cars I saw are non-descript euro sedans (I believe Peugeot or Fiat) - they are rumored to have Lamborghini pursuit cars as there are plenty of fast cars out there, but I never saw one on duty.
