Dubai Ambulance Service adds three new supercars to its fleet
A Range Rover, Nissan GT-R and a Chevrolet Corvette all made the cut…
Dubai is well known for its fleet of Dubai Police supercars, which include a Lambourghini Aventador, Bugatti Veyron and even a Ferrari, but you’d think that Dubai Ambulance vehicles came as standard, right?
Wrong. The Dubai Ambulance Service have just revealed that they’ve added three new supercars to their fleet of emergency service vehicles – and they’re pretty impressive.
A Range Rover, Nissan GT-R and a Chevrolet Corvette all made the cut, with the Dubai Ambulance Service stating that the “high speed vehicle’s average emergency response times will be between four and eight minutes.”

The supercars were unveiled as part of a three-month campaign named ‘Give way…Give hope’ in a collaboration between the Dubai Corporation of Ambulance Services (DCAS), Dubai Police and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which aims to reduce response time to emergencies.
Vehicles are marked with Dubai Ambulance’s colours and motifs and, of course, fitted with emergency lights. The Range Rover has pink markings and is the designated female responder unit, whilst the Nissan and Chevrolet are marked in red and are male first responders.
Each of the state-of-the-art vehicles will have two paramedics, a driver and will have CPR equipment, oxygen cylinders and other medical equipment.
In the promotional video, posted by Dubai Ambulance Service to their Twitter page, the vehicles can be seen both stationary and moving on Bluewaters Island.
You’ll often see the cars stationed at Dubai Mall, City Walk and The Walk at JBR.
