docker \
    run \
    --interactive \

    --volume /dev/vboxdrv:/dev/vboxdrv:ro \
    --env DISPLAY \
    --volume /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix:ro \

Because this depends on host resources, this will probably only work with an ubuntu 16.04 host with VirtualBox installed.
See for instruction on how to install VirtualBox on the host.

It is necessary to set DISPLAY and share /tmp/.X11-unix for a GUI display, but if you want to run headless, then that is not necessary.
