Since its inception, the Formula 1 safety car has always been something interesting for its time -- a Porsche 911 GT2, a Tatra 623 and a Ford Escort RS Cosworth have all served, for example. Sticking with the tradition, the current F1 safety car is the Mercedes-AMG GT, one of the most interesting cars on the road today. However, the ultimate safety car is probably this Lamborghini Countach.
Reddit user t12totalxyzb00 posted a picture of this Countach with the F1 light bar on top of its wedged body. Apparently, this Countach was used for the Monaco GP in the 1980s -- making it the most appropriate safety car ever to see time on an F1 track. Between the excess of the 1980s, Formula 1 and the insanely styled V12-powered supercar, there has never been a better representation of an era.
