Britain's fastest police car

Motorway officers have unveiled their latest weapon against speeding drivers - Britain's fastest police car.

Lotus have handed over one of their latest 162mph Evora sportscars to the West Midlands traffic unit that patrols some of the country's busiest motorways.

Complete with its police livery, badges and flashing lights the £55,000 supercar will be used on major routes including M5, M6, M42 and the M6 toll road.

PC Angus Nairn said: "It's a very quick car and we hope it will prove an effective deterrent to anyone thinking of speeding or trying to outrun us.

"It has incredible performance yet still does around 30mpg. It will attract a lot of attention on the motorways but that is the whole idea - it will remind drivers of the need to keep to ther speed limits at all times".

Lotus have given the Evora - which will be officially unveiled today at an international motorsport show in Birmingham - to the police for a month for evaluation.

Powered by a 280bhp 3.5 litre V6 engine, the car can hit 60mph in less than five seconds.

Lotus have previously offered the Sussex force an Exige and loaned out Esprits and Elise models to police but the Evora puts Britain's police near the top of the European law-enforcement top performance league table.

The Italians claim first place with a specially-adapted 192mph Lamborghini Gallardo. Unfortunately the car, seized from a convicted drug dealer, was later written off when a careless motorist pulled out in front of it.

    Lotus sure have an interesting way of providing the police a fast car to chase bad guys with. In my case it would be best for me to follow the road signs than being chased with that car.
