Police are using an Evora to patrol motorways

Police in the West Midlands are using a Lotus Evora as a patrol car in an attempt to dissuade speeders.

The fully liveried Evora will patrol the M5, M6 and M42 as well as the M6 toll road during a two-week trial.

Loaned to the Central Motorway Police Group by the Norfolk-based sports car manufacturer, the Evora has a top speed of 168mph and reaches 60mph in less than five seconds.

“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,” PC Angus Nairn told the Daily Mail newspaper.
“It will attract a lot of attention on the motorways but that is the whole idea”.
