In what seems to be a dramatic shift from the Hummers VicPol were seen cruising in last month, Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) has announced a new assignment for the company’s ultimate performance car, a new recruit to the force.
The familiar chequered Victoria Police decals will become a familiar sight around Melbourne with the special Lancer Evolution promotional vehicle to be featured in numerous public events such as open days, charity events, educational sessions and parades, as well as regular street patrols.
President and chief executive officer of MMAL, Robert McEniry, is pleased to be able to support the Victoria Police with Mitsubishi’s top performance vehicle,
“The Lancer Evolution has an enviable reputation for stand-out styling and fantastic performance in its standard guise, but the addition of the Police paintwork makes it a real head-turner and the perfect choice for a Victoria Police promotional vehicle. Everyone at Mitsubishi is proud to see this Lancer Evolution with its striking police decals and we’re sure it will spark a positive reaction from the public at the many events requiring police presence in the coming months,” said McEniry.
The special police edition Lancer Evolution has already been put to work by the Victoria Police, and its most recent appearance was as a lead car in the National Police Remembrance Day parade in late September.
Future assignments scheduled for the vehicle include appearances at the Mansfield Show and Emergency Services Car Show this month, the annual Cops’n’Kids Camp in November, and Shepparton’s Rock and Rod Car Show in March 2009 and the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal in April 2009.
