BMW M6 Announced as MotoGP Safety Car

Motorsport / Comments

BMW will introduce the M6 MotoGP safety car at this weekend's M Festival 24 Hour Nurburgring race.

For the past 13 years, BMW has provided the official safety car for the MotoGP. This season, the 1 Series M Coupe will be replaced by the new M6 Coupe. The MotoGP M6 safety car will debut this weekend at the Nurburgring M Festival wearing a shed load of carbon-fiber accessories such as a front bumper lip, side mirrors and adjustable rear wing. The car also features a front splitter, gloss black grille, a light bar and BMW M livery.

A high quality Akrapovic exhaust system is also expected following the announcement of BMW's partnership with the exhaust specialist. It's unknown whether any performance modifications have been made. If not then a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 will produce 552hp and 502lb-ft of torque. Connected to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, it will be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds en route to an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. After debuting at the Nurburgring, the MototGP M6 safety car will head to the M Festival's M Corso event.
