Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Police Car ready to chase the bad guys

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The Police specs of the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X have arrived with South Yorkshire Police to the immense pleasure of its drivers, and the irritation of local criminals.

The latest model car will be employed together with the ever present Evolution VIII and IX in the Road Crime Unit where practical road policing is the assignment and officers will be utilizing the new vehicle in events involving drug dealers and car thieves.

The fresh member of the crew will be employed on the same objectives and at the same time as its brothers of the past generation, providing such a powerful visual effect that the car being chased will often simply surrender the chase and pull over, knowing full well that they won't be able to beat the RCU.

In addition, the Police Evolutions pursue fleeing criminals in groups of three, which, Inspector Slack said is often sufficient of prevention that high-speed chases are not necessary.

Besides being already a highly capable vehicle, the latest Evolution X will also be outfitted with all the latest Police hardware and software combinations.

It will, for instance, be equipped with the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system which permits officers to verify who the owner of a particular vehicle is, its registration, or if there is anything distantly doubtful about the car.

SOUTH YORKSHIRE POLICE HUNT IN PACKS WITH THEIR LANCER EVOLUTION TRILOGY

Evo X Has Excellent Pursuit Capabilities

The new Police specification Evolution X has arrived with South Yorkshire Police to the great delight of its drivers, and the chagrin of local villains. The new car will be used alongside the ever present Evolution VIII and IX in the Road Crime Unit where proactive road policing is the mission and officers will be driving the new car in cases involving drug dealers and car thieves. "The Evo X was the car of choice because of its excellent pursuit capabilities and the fact that so much time and effort has been put into maximising performance whilst minimising the risk of accidents" Inspector Slack explained.

The Hunted Will Give Up

The new member of the team will be used on the same missions and at the same time as its previous-generation siblings, creating such a strong visual impact that the vehicle being pursued will often simply give up the chase and pull over, knowing they won't be able to out-run the RCU. What is more, the Police Evolutions 'hunt' in packs of three, which, Inspector Slack explained is often enough of a deterrent that high-speed chases are avoided.

Evo X Has The Latest Software and Hardware

Not only will the new Evolution X be one of the most capable performing cars, it will also be fitted with the latest Police hardware and software combinations. The onboard Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system allows officers to check who the vehicle is registered to and if there is anything remotely suspicious about the vehicle.
