Kyosho - GTR Safety Car

"In motorsport, a safety car or pace car is a car which limits the speed of competing cars on a racetrack in the case of a caution period such as an obstruction on the track. During a caution period the safety car enters the track ahead of the leader. With few exceptions, competitors are not allowed to pass the safety car or other competitors during a caution period, and the safety car leads the field at a pre-determined safe speed, which may vary by series and circuit. At the end of the caution period, the safety car leaves the track and the competitors may resume racing." taken from wikipedia.
Starting from 2008, Nissan GT-R Coupe has been the official safety car for the SUPER GT Series and swathed in white and sporting the required safety stickers and light bar it does suits GT-R well!
This is the nearest I can get to a Nissan GT-R safety car..
