Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Makes its Debut as New DTM Safety Car

SafetyCar DTM This C63 AMG Black Series Safety Car features much of the same hardware as the ‘normal’ C63 AMG Black Series. Just to remind you, that means it has a whopping 6.3-liter V8 that makes 517 hp, as well as the 7-speed automatic transmission that helps the Black Series Safety car hit 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.

There are some interesting additions to this car as it’s fully optioned out with every single AMG performance package. That means it has the AMG track package, the AMG aerodynamics package, the AMG exterior carbon-fibre package and forged AMG light-alloy wheels.

All of those extras are put to good use since the C63 AMG Black Series safety car will be used to make the race as safe as possible for racing drivers, spectators and track marshals. This means it has to perform in any situation, like poor weather conditions, among accidents and through other strenuous circumstances.

Of course that is the main reason this car exists, and has that unique light-bar on the car’s roof. It’s aerodynamically optimized, and switches from green to orange in order to reflect the driving situation.
