From a technical perspective, however, the Official FIA F1 Safety Car remains unchanged: the front-mid engine concept with transaxle gearbox, the powerful 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, the intricately designed chassis, the sophisticated active aerodynamics and the intelligent lightweight construction form the basis for a particularly dynamic driving experience. Optional features include the AMG Track Package with roll-over protection system and the ceramic high-performance composite brake system.
The AMG GT R is perfectly qualified for this tough job at the pinnacle of motorsport. The FIA requirements for the Official FIA F1 Safety Car are high. It must be able to maintain a high minimum speed so that the tires and brakes of the Formula 1 cars do not lose too much temperature and the engines do not overheat. With a top speed of 318 km/h and 3.6 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h, this is an easy task for the AMG GT R.
