Lexus has unveiled their new RC F Safety Car for the V8 Supercars series.

Set to enter use later this year, the Safety Car has a roof-mounted light bar and an attractive racing livery. Lexus was coy on additional changes but the model uses a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 470 bhp (351 kW) and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque.

Besides unveiling the RC F Safety Car, Lexus introduced the GS 350 F Sport Course Car and the IS 350 F Sport Medical Car. Both feature the aforementioned changes as well as a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 312 bhp (233 kW) and 278 lb-ft (378 Nm) of torque.

In a statement, Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said the partnership is "... the perfect opportunity to show Australian motorsport fans the new RC F, which is just as suited to driving on a track as it is on the road.”

His sentiments were echoed by V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton who stated "The stunning RC F safety car will be a feature of its own, and together with the IS 350 F Sport and GS 350 F Sport, we are absolutely delighted these ultra-high performance vehicles will be an integral part of V8 Supercars in 2015."
