New 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG F1 Safety

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG F1 Safety Car, used at the new Formula-1 season in Bahrain last month, it is the most spectacular and powerful Official F1™ Safety Car of all time. The gullwing model, launched on 27 March 2010, had replaced the SL 63 AMG, which was used as the Official F1™ Safety Car in 2008 and 2009 seasons.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has a unique vehicle concept in ensuring outstanding driving dynamics; the aluminum space-frame body keeps the vehicle weight down to 1620 kilograms (DIN kerb weight). Powered by 6.3-liter V8 engine that produces a peak output of 420 kW (571 hp) and a maximum torque of 650 Nm, the gullwing model can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds. Moreover, thanks to the dry-sump lubrication system that enables the AMG V8 powerplant to be installed very low down, the vehicle’s center of gravity has beneficially lowered.

As the standard-production SLS AMG, the Official F1™ Safety Car features the same engine, power transmission, suspension and brake system. Compared to the standard-production SLS, the AMG F1 is distinguishable on the outside by its prominent F1 logos, carbon-fiber exterior mirrors and the characteristic roof light bar with integrated TV camera. It sits on an all-new carbon-fiber hood whose shape has been tested in the wind tunnel to ensure optimum airflow at the rear aerofoil.
