Other than racing and sports, where would you like to see fast cars put in best use ever? Perhaps, it would be as first aid support to a patient in critical medical condition is one that comes to mind. Dubai has revealed word’s fastest ambulance at GITEX technology week, which a modified Lotus Evora indeed. The car won’t carry patients to hospital, but it’ll help trained paramedics reach the patient within few minutes, long before the ambulance arrives at the spot. It’s just a two-seater car, more like the first responders in UK.
The space behind the driver car carries first aid kit essentials, and it can cruise to the patient with a maximum speed of 185 mph. That’s would make a swift response time on the part of Dubai Health Authority.
Regarding the same, BBC reports:
Inside the two-seater, just above a small control box for the siren and flashing light, a hard-cased widescreen notebook sits among the Lotus’s lush leather interiors. It can transmit information that the paramedics gather about the patient back to the hospital, or to an incoming crew. A defibrillator and first aid kit squeeze in behind the driver’s seat, with an oxygen supply in the boot.
According to a paramedic with Dubai Corporation for Ambulances Services present at Gitex technology week in the city’s World Trade Centre comments on the car:
The car is of importance to patients so we can reach them in a very short time. Those sport cars minimise the time of response and it can reach much faster than the ambulance cars, they can do the first aid by the time the ambulance arrives.
The car is estimated worth around £100,000. Initially, 50 specially trained paramedics would take command of these speedy lifelines. The ambulance fleet also features two Ford Mustangs with a Chevrolet lined up for the entry.
