The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the SLS AMG GT F1 safety car which will make its official debut at the 2012 Singapore Grand Prix.
After the regular version of the SLS AMG has been replaced not too long ago with the updated SLS AMG GT, the German supercar is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the car manufacturer unveiling the F1 safety car. According to the carmaker, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT F1 safety car will make its official debut at the 2012 Singapore Grand Prix, which will kick-off on the 23rd of September.
The regular version of the updated Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the GT, is getting some minor tweaks to the engine, like the modified ECU, which allows the 6.3-liter V8 engine to develop a total output of 591 horsepower, 20 horsepower more than the standard version. Thanks to this, the German supercar can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 11.2 seconds. The SLS AMG GT is also getting some exterior modifications like the painted brake calipers, the darkened taillights and headlamps, the gloss finish for the exterior mirrors, hood, fender and grille, along with the GT logo added to the luggage lid. Prices for the standard supercar will start in Germany at 204,680 euros for the Coupe and at 213,010 euros for the Roadster.
