The muscular Chrysler 300 SRT8 will lead the V8 Supercars around the track this year as the official safety car. Sponsored by Pedders, the SRT8 will feature at all rounds of the now international racing competition, starting with the Clipsal 500 at Adelaide this weekend.
We reviewed the SRT8 late last year, so we know first hand how cool this car is. Along with the official safety car, Chrysler has also supplied two brand spanking new SRT8s to be the course car and medical car.
Fiat Chrysler Group marketing director Mark McCraith said the SRT8s association with V8 Supercars put it on the global stage and highlighted its performance and styling elements.
“This is an impressive muscle car with instantly recognisable looks. We are looking forward to seeing the three Chrysler 300 SRT8s perform important roles for the championship in front of millions of enthusiasts throughout the season.”
Apart from the distinctive livery and flashing lights, the safety cars are the same as their road-going counterparts.
