When seconds count…
That’s the thinking behind the addition of a 460-horsepower C7 Corvette Grand Sport to the lineup of first-response vehicles operated by Dubai Ambulance.
The speedy Corvettes “are meant to reach the emergency scene first before the ambulance, in order to aid the accident and to save what can be saved until the ambulance arrives,” according to Zulekha Hospital, a major medical center in the Dubai area.
The Grand Sport will be manned by two medics, who will have CPR equipment, oxygen tanks, and other medical equipment commonly used to treat accident and drowning victims.
It will be used at several tourist hotspots in Dubai, including the Dubai Mall, Dubai City Walk, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, and The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, along with sporting events like cycling races, marathons, and horse races.
Not only can it reach the scene of an emergency quickly, but the Corvette will also look sharp doing it, with white and red Dubai Ambulance livery and emergency lights and sirens.
The Corvette joins a stable of impressive first-response vehicles in Dubai, like a Nissan GT-R, Range Rover, Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Aventador, Lotus Evora, Bentley Continental, BMW i8 and an Aston Martin One-77.
The hot cars were added to the medical team’s fleet thanks to a Dubai government initiative to cut emergency response times to car wrecks and other emergencies.
