Looks cool, right? Finally, you're thinking, the police get a righteous car with which to chase down the baddies.
This police liveried Lotus Evora will be making its debut this weekend at the Autosport International show in Birmingham, where UK cops will be using it as an educational tool.
They want to use it as an ice-breaker to teach young scallywags the dangers of speed. That's right, a 276bhp sports car capable of 0-62mph in 5.1 seconds used for school.
It will patrol the M6 from Monday, so if you're in the area, keep an eye out for it. And if you happen to have a camera-thingy on your mobile communications device, snap away and send it in to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
