Out on patrol in a Lotus Evora

There is a long history of the world’s most famous performance car brands working with the police to create poster-worthy patrol vehicles, and Lotus is no exception.

Over the years Lotus has collaborated with the law-enforcement communities in numerous regions of the UK and internationally. Hethel, the home of Lotus since 1966, is in the county of Norfolk and Lotus has joined forces with its police several times over the years. Lotus has also provided cars to traffic teams in Australia, the US, Romania and Italy…. and the latest is now out and about with Devon & Cornwall Police in the south-west of the UK.

The Lotus Evora GT410 is on loan there for a year and is being used for community engagement. It attends shows and motoring events to allow the police to discuss road safety with different audiences. Dorset Police also has access to the car.

Sgt Owen Messenger is a Roads Casualty Reduction Officer for the force and said: “We’ve given the Evora a bespoke livery including full blue light rig – it’s a real head-turner! It’s popular with younger drivers because of its striking sports car looks, while the Lotus badge resonates with many people across the generations. It helps us talk to those audiences who are not always keen to engage with the police.”

Matt Windle, managing director, Lotus Cars, added: “We are delighted to be able to provide this Lotus Evora to Devon and Cornwall Police and Dorset Police to help them with vital road safety programmes. We support any initiative that encourages all drivers to drive to the road conditions, to drive safely and with consideration to others. The Evora is a perfect car to engage with drivers and will help in getting these important messages across to all road users.”
