/ Comments

345-hp first response vehicle will reach patients in record time.

Taking a page from the Dubai Police Department's playbook, the Dubai Health Authority has unveiled a custom Lotus Evora S billed as the "fastest ambulance in the world." The British sports car packs a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 rated at 345 hp, enabling it to sprint from 0-62 mph in 4.6 seconds and hit a 172 mph top speed. 50 specially-trained paramedics will use the car in order to reach patients in rapid time.

While the two-seater won't be used for transportation, it will enable first responders to start performing initial first aid within 3-4 minutes of receiving a call. The Lotus comes specially equipped with emergency kits to check heart rate and blood pressure, with a defibrillator and first aid kit tucked away behind the driver's seat and oxygen supply in the boot. Dubai's ambulance fleet is also being bolstered with two Ford Mustangs and a Chevy Corvette.
