rapid response zt-t

saw this story when i was surfing .


MG's ZT-T has been chosen by West Midlands and Shropshire Ambulance Services as their 'Rapid-Response Vehicle', specified to attend emergency incidents, ideally within 8 minutes of notification. The Trophy Yellow estate cars, with green reflective Battenburg livery, will soon be patrolling the counties.

The MG ZT-T features sports suspension and a 2.5-litre quad-cam V6 engine to produce an accomplished on-road performance characteristic that is entirely suitable for rapid response requirements. Combined with its versatile estate bodystyle, with stylish tailgate, separately hinged opening rear window and a potential 1222-litres of practical loadspace, the ZT-T will carry the Incident Commander and Paramedic Technicians quickly to their emergency destination.

The rapid-response MG specification is a standard ZT-T 190, with a multitude of standard features that include air conditioning and 18" alloy wheels. An optional integral loadspace cassette has been specified for the safe carriage and restraint of the considerable incident equipment, which includes; oxygen therapy, cardiac defibrillators, entonox, maternity and paediatric pack, burns bag, cervical collars, splints and first aid bag. Plans for major incidents, site maps, body bags, triage cards and contacts for agencies and hospitals are also carried.

Additional special items include the light roof bar, radio communications and a reverse-decal 'Ambulance' livery on the bonnet and on the West Midlands Ambulance Service car 'Responder' on its tailgate.

Bob Seaward, Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Operations for both West Midlands and Shropshire Ambulance Services said: "I am always looking at new initiatives to assist in the delivery of patient care to the communities. When we evaluated the MG ZT-T we were most impressed with its performance and considered this would help our staff in providing the best possible response to emergencies within our operational area.

Gavin Thompson, specialist sales manager, MG Rover Group, said: "The feedback prompted by the Police specification MG ZT-T, has generated a number of emergency service enquiries for this Rapid Response Vehicle.

This refers to the red 6 litre V8 765bhp ZT-T based speed record car that broke 225mph at the Bonneville speed trials in summer 2003.

Of more value is the development of a supercharged KV6 specifically for the Police ZT and heavy armoured limo markets. Quite whether this percolates to an XPower kit is another matter. It is less likely to be a production option due to homologation issues, plus resourses are focussed in new car projects.
