In Formula One, the safety car has always had a very important role and, since 1996, that role has been fulfilled by none other than Mercedes themselves. Not only has Mercedes provided the safety car, but the car has always been the latest AMG model. That being said, Mercedes TV has unveiled a new review video for their latest SLS AMG Safety Car.

The Official F1 Safety Car comes with the exact engine setup as the standard SLS AMG. It is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine located front-mid that will develop 571 hp and up to 650 Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The only difference is that this Mercedes SLS AMG will be riding on track with some pretty powerful Formula One machines.

Nothing wrong with the wing for a track car like that. You have to remember that the down-force is maximized by the height of the wing, which it is. Perfectly lined up with the roof-line.
