We’ve seen some outstanding safety cars this year ranging from Mercedes , Porsche , and BMW , but this latest safety car seems to have come to fruition straight from our dreams. Patrolling the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 11–12, 2011 at the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans, France will be a beautiful red Audi R8 . Guess the R18 race car won’t be the only Audi to star at this event.
The Audi R8 Safety Car will feature the same V10 engine found in the standard model that will deliver 525 HP and can hit a top speed of 197 mph. Some may wonder why a car of this caliber would even need to be patrolling the race instead of starring in it, but there needs to be at least one powerful and speedy model keeping everything in line.
Make sure you keep your eyes open during this weekend’s 24 Hours of Lemans to catch a glimpse of this spectacular safety car!
