Porsche has revealed that a Taycan Turbo S will serve as the Formula E safety car for the upcoming season.

The safety car sports a striking livery comprising of all the colours of the 11 teams competing, as well as the colours of the FIA and Formula E. The number 22 acknowledges the performance of the 22 drivers who contest the series this season.

Thanks to its driveability and safety as well as its output of up 751bhp, the Taycan Turbo S is the ideal choice for a safety car in the only all-electric motorsport World Championship. With Launch Control, the flagship model of the Taycan range accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260km/h.

The conversion of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S into a safety car required the installation of a roll cage and racing bucket seats with six-point seatbelts as well as wire harnesses for the safety car lighting and the Marelli Logger System. Flashing lights were integrated into the bumpers, alongside a fire extinguisher and a high-tech communication system.
