Nurburgring gets a new safety car : The Nissan GT-R Rapid Response Vehicle

Although the Nurburgring Nordschliefe track is the dream to most racing-enthusiasts, the 'Ring's fast, blind, and dangerous corners took the lives of hundreds over the years. The team at the Nurburgring always try their best to save those who hit the tight wall-barriers or caught an engine-fire. Well now, they need a new safety car, that's really quick to get to the seen of the accident, and yet have all the equipment needed.
Here it is, the new Nissan GT-R Rapid Response Vehicle. Like a any R35 GT-R, but Nurburgring's Rapid Response Team fitted it with a a fire retardant tank that takes up all of the rear passenger area and a functional hose reel and equipment bay in the trunk. All that, and it will cover the 13-mile track in 7:26.7.
