W Motors is known for Lykan HyperSport and Fenyr SuperSport, but the company isn’t limited to exotic hypercars. Its latest model, called the Giath Smart Patrol, is a bespoke Nissan Patrol-based SUV designed for the Dubai Police, which makes its debut via a short video posted on W Motor’s official website. Keep in mind that this model is different from the Giath that was introduced in 2018 and is based on the Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban. It is a spectacular car, which will surely be liked by lovers of patrol cars.
The Ghiath is described as “one of the most advanced safety vehicles in the world.” W Motors was shy about the details in terms of technical specifications, but there are strong indications that the SUV is based on the Nissan Patrol. While the body panels and lighting units are new and feature W Motor’s own design language, the cabin and proportions make it clear that this police car is mounted on the sixth-generation Patrol (2010-present).
The details that are observed in its aesthetics
In addition to the special livery with green graphics on a white body, the Ghiath Smart Patrol comes with additional police lights mounted on the roof, grille and tailgate, plus plastic parts that protrude from both ends and the roof to give it a sturdy appearance.
The front is aggressive, has LED daytime running lights and powerful night lights. The hood is flat, with lines that pair with both the night lights and grille. There are air inlets on the sides of the bumper.
On the sides there are black wheels or wheels, the door locks are black, as are the mirror housings, and it has a grille on the roof. Highlights include the headlights on the roof, which are designed for fields and rugged areas.
Inside the cabin
Patrol’s origins are evident within the cabin from the Nissan-sourced steering wheel, 4WD mode selector and climate controls. However, W Motors added a suite of aftermarket digital instruments that looks identical to the one we found on Alibaba, a huge touchscreen that covers the entire center console, bespoke switches, integrated police radio, and another passenger-side display showing the transmission from the security cameras.
Speaking of which, the SUV has plenty of cameras around the body and a 360-degree unit coming out of the roof. In addition, the rear of the cabin converts for law enforcement functions, is completely separate from the driver and features custom plastic seats designed to accommodate potentially dangerous suspects.
The possible mechanical qualities of the car
We don’t know if W Motors adjusted the powertrain, but the original Nissan Patrol is equipped with a 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine that produces 400 horsepower (298 kW/406 PS) or up to 428 horsepower (319 kW/434 PS) in the performance-focused Patrol Nismo. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox and Nissan’s 4WD system.
Final details of the car
W Motors claims that the Ghiath Smart Patrol will be produced at its Dubai Silicon Oasis facility as the first of many vehicles developed under the Special Projects Division that focuses on security, defense and smart technologies. The range will soon be expanded with the addition of a Ghiath Drone edition, SWAT vehicles, rescue and first aid vehicles, electric vehicles, electric bikes and more.
