The World's Fastest Police Cars

So ive come across this youtube video that was published on 4 Jun 2014 that stated that The Dubai police force are the proud owners of a $1.6 million dollar Bugatti Veyron, cable of doing 267mph and from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds. However, these vehicles are not used to chase criminals, but instead as a PR mechanism. Heralded as the most progressive of the Arab police forces, they drive the fleet to various tourist attractions in Dubai as a means of connecting with citizens and tourists. Its also another way for Dubai to flaunt their enormous wealth.
I couldn't help but reflect on another fast police car that ive seen previously (that I had thought was the fastest car that the police own) called the Atom.  After looking up the information on the Atom it turns out that its not even close in its top speed which is 155mph but its 0-60 is the same.
I think the Atom "looks" cooler and more police like. What do you all think, what would you rather drive given that even the police wont get to test out the full speed of either car?
