New Nurburgring Rapid Response Vehicle will be helping to mop up the post-spill carnage that's part and parcel of a day at the' Ring

With a lap-record time of 7m26s, Nissan's R35 Skyline has been causing quite a stir and many a pant-wetting moment in the car world. Now the operators of the Nordschleife have introduced an R35 Skyline as their Rapid Response Vehicle.

This stripped out, R35 features bucket-seats, a rollcage and a massive fire-extinguisher tank where the rear seats would normally be.
