The Lotus Evora first response vehicle has been introduced at the Dubai World Trade Centre during the 2014 Gitex Technology Week.

Not to be outdone by the local police officers with their supercars, the fifty paramedics in Dubai will soon use a Lotus Evora as a first response vehicle. The role of this 172 mph car is to carry just about the same type of equipment as a regular ambulance but get to the scene of the incident much faster to allow the paramedics provide first aid until the arrival of a proper ambulance.

The specialized Lotus Evora will have a suction unit, responder bag, cardiac defibrillators, oxygen bags and foam splints for fractures, along with a mobile data terminal which will allow the paramedic to record patient data and vital stats that will be sent to the hospital before an ambulance arrives.

All paramedics who will be using a Lotus Evora will receive special training, but at first the car will be showcased in the most important touristic attractions in the city, including Burj Khalifa and Jumeirah Beach. Later on, two Ford Mustangs as well as a Chevrolet Corvette C7 will join the fleet.
