It's packed full of the latest high-tech automotive technology, from the AIRPANEL active air control system in the front apron to the rear double diffuser, active rear-wheel steering and nine-way adjustable traction control.
All of the improvements and additions help to boost the car's performance and driving dynamics, enabling it to meet the requirements for the tough job of being F1's Safety Car.
This includes being able to maintain a set pace that prevents the tyres and brakes of F1 cars from cooling and the engines from overheating.
Bernd Mayländer is the man behind the wheel of the F1 Safety Car and he's joined by co-driver Richard Darker, who maintains radio contact with race control.
The interior of the AMG GT R includes two tablet devices, used for monitoring what's going on out on the race track. One shows the live race feed, and the other features vehicle positions and lap times.
