Lotus Evora S Carabinieri Cop Car


British supercars will be helping patrol Italian streets.

The Arma dei Carabinieri just got a big upgrade. After the 'Raging Bull' Lamborghini Gallardo was wrecked in a weird crash (running into some parked cars and ending up under a Mercedes-Benz A-class), the policing unit of the Italian army will now roll hard in two souped up Lotus Evora S's. "Everyone knows that Italy has more than its 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," exclaimed Lotus CEO Dany Bahar.

Both cars feature some special accoutrements to help out Italian forces when they are hard at work on la Piazza. An Enhanced Vehicle Automation (EVA) system feature allows the latest voice recognition system, while a neat little refrigeration compartment stationed behind the front seats enables the 'Corps of Carabiners' to safely transport blood and vital organs during medical emergencies. The Lotus Evora S is known for its excellent performance and handling, however controlling a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 isn't easy and 350hp is no walk in the park.

"Not just anyone can drive these cars, we carefully selected some of our team to attend a driver training session at the new test track at Lotus' headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk where they learnt all about the very special characteristics and incredible potential of the cars," said Colonel Marco Minicucci of the Arma. Only specially trained drivers will be allowed to pilot the new Carabinieri cruisers. The Arma dei Carabinieri are stationed all around Italy and patrol both military and civilians sectors. The Evora S patrol cars will be stationed in Rome and Milan for the next two years.
