The Dubai government has unveiled what might be the fastest ambulance in the world, a heavily modified Lotus Evora.

Dubai has been showing off the sports car at Gitex, the Gulf's largest technology event of the year where each country showcases the latest technology it has in development.

The Evora -- capable of hitting 0-60mph in just 4.8secs -- has been outfitted with lights, siren and a full paramedic's kit in the boot including a defibrillator.

Dubai hasn't stopped there as it plans on increasing the sports car line up to include Ford Mustangs and a Chevrolet Corvette.

The BBC reports each driver who's assigned to the car will have to take a rigorous high-speed training course in order to help them navigate through Dubai's busy traffic.
