Coming soon to Victorian highways – nestled among the bushes, packin’ a radar gun, two pair of mirror shades, a ball-point pen and a sheaf of unfilled speeding tickets – is this brand spanking new Evo X. It was recently snapped in bristling highway-patrol livery at VicPol’s Brunswick Street headquarters. (One of TMR’s dedicated team was being frog-marched through at the time... “Officer... you got da wrong guy...”)

This one, according to sources within ‘traffic branch’, has Mitsubishi’s Twin Clutch Sport Shift Transmission (TC-SST) and “makes the speed of a Subaru WRX look like a six cylinder VB Commodore. Besides being a full-on rally car with all wheel drive, it has the paddle shift on the steering column” – so sayeth the source.


It’s a trend that’s catching on. As TMR has previously reported, U.K. Police Ponder Evo X Interceptor, UK Police have been assessing the Evo X for highway duties there. Victoria Police has gone one better and given the all-paw rocket a cap and a badge and signed it up.

So be warned – it’s new ball game out there. Victoria Police now have a new weapon in the fight against all you Yaris drivers bending the speed of light (and the space time continuum).
