Mercedes-Benz will offically start to use their new SLS AMG GT F1 Safety Car at this weekend’s 2012 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix.
The model features an increase in power output to 591hp compared to its predecessor, optimised gear shift times and the new AMG Ride Control Performance suspension. The new SLS AMG GT differs from the previous SLS AMG in terms of its increased driving dynamics, even better on-track performance and also new design features.
The new SLS AMG GT is driven by Bernd Mayländer (41 years old, Germany). The official F1 safety car driver has fulfilled this role since 2000 and he is an important member of the FIA’s safety team across the race weekend.
