If the stripes were painted green, it would be one super-fast "Polizei" pursuit traffic police car.

I would believe the point of this car is to get a doctor from point A to point B as quickly as possible. A lot of times a doctor at the scene quickly can save lives. Obviously the chopper or ambulance better be following soon after. :-)

that Eurocopter EC135 flying alongside ought to have been the subject of this article . It can function in more emergency situations than this fancy Mercedes masquerading as such . Oh but wait.... this car can still accommodate two strechers...atop its overgrown Pinocchio-esque engine bay .
