For the upcoming Singapore Grand Prix, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT F1 Safety Car has gained more horsepower and other tweaks.
The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was introduced as the official F1 Safety Car back in 2010 and now for the upcoming Singapore Grand Prix it has received several updates. It is in fact the GT version and will receive an increase in power to 591 HP (435 kW) in comparison to its predecessor, along with a new AMG Ride Control Performance suspension and optimized gear shift times. The vehicle is driven by Bernd Mayländer who’s been the F1 Safety Car drive since 2000, along with his co-driver Pete Tibbets.
The F1 Safety Car was deployed this year for the first time during the Belgian Grand Prix and chances are that we’ll see it for the seventh time on Sunday during the night race on Singapore’s Marina Bay, taking into consideration that the safety car has been deployed here every year since the race was introduced in 2008.
