To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification, Lotus has created two Evora S police cars for the Carabinieri (Military Police).

Built for units in Rome and Milan, the special models have a light bar, an enhanced automation system and a refrigerated compartment that will be used for transporting vital organs.

According to Lotus CEO Dany Bahar, "Everyone knows that Italy has more than it's fair share of high profile sports car manufacturers so it is a real honor for a relatively small British brand to be in this position. The feedback from the driver training on the Evora S at our test track was very positive, it's such a responsive car to drive, I think the teams in Rome and Milan are really going to feel the benefit of working with our product."
