After upgrading the SLS AMG with a new name and better specs, Mercedes has also opted to replace its Safety Car version with the new Mercedes SLS AMG GT. The new SLS AMG GT Safety Car will be used during the 2012 Formula 1 Singtel Singapore Grand Prix on September 21st, 2nd, and 23rd.

The new Safety Car will be present with an aluminum spaceframe construction that helps keep its total weight down to just 3571 lbs. It will be powered by the same V8 engine found in the standard model, which delivers a total of 591 HP and is mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission with optimized shift times. Next to this impressive engine, the SLS AMG GT Safety Car also received a high-performance ceramic composite brake system and weight-reduced AMG 10-spoke forged light-alloy wheels painted in matte black with a high-sheen finish.

As if all of this wasn’t enough to get the fans’ attention, Mercedes has also allowed the Mercedes SLS AMG GT Safety Car to stand out with a number of LED lights and a specially developed rear silencer that provides an even more sensational V8 soundtrack.

if the cops did that in a murcielago, imagine what they could do in a sls.

the italian police got a murcielago and a guy trying to get away from them kept pushing and pushing and the police was still after him. he then stopped and congratulated the cops.

what i love about the mercedes sls F1 is that the F1 driverswere asking the safety car to slow down so they could keep up with it.

how can the sound the sls was offering get even better?

I think Cops will be more powerful on implementing the law with this new SLS AMG. I admire the power they give on this Mercedes to be more aggressive on haunting those most wanted and chasing the runaway suspects.

I think those people who will commit crime will now be afraid of this new car because the speed of this car is awesome. I think they will be caught if they run away from cops.

A modern style of cop’s car. I just love the idea of doing it as the Safety Car.

Good thing they make it more safety than the other one. It will deliver a more safer race for its driver.

The 2013 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT F1 is a two door safety car that has the new improvements in specifications and I know it is not enough to caught the attention of the people, but the Mercedes SLS AMG GT has its own specially built rear silencer that gives more equalized v8 soundtrack.

Wow, if this will be the police car that is going to chase me, I’d rather not to take the chance of escaping. Dude, it’s SLS, I’m doomed!
