Recently I wrote about BMW M4 safety cars being the ultimate in the limited field of this type. Not to be outdone Mercedes have announced that their quite stunning looking AMG GT S will be the new safety car for the DTM racing series replacing the current safety car, the C63 AMG Coupé Black Series.


Powering this version is the same 4.0-liter V8 engine which produces a massive 510 PS. The engine of and car itself are virtually all stock as when the car rolled out of the factory. The AMG-GT S Safety Car will be driven by racing driver Jürgen Kastenholz, who will only take to the track “when dangerous situations, such as an accident, extreme weather conditions or other incidents make it necessary for the vehicle to be deployed.”

So my question is do you want this or the M4 as your safety car of choice?.
