If you are both a Grand Prix and a BMW fan, you will be happy to know that this MotoGP season the safety car will be a Gran Coupe BMW M6.
To catch a first glimpse of this car in action, you will have to be in Quatar this weekend, where the BMW M6 safety car will make its debut.
But if you can’t make it to any MotoGP event, just hop over to the BMW facebook page, and gawk at the pictures they just released. Their BMW M6 Gran Coupe sports the traditional M stripes with a base white color and a few sponsors’ logos.
The MotoGp will span 3 continents, summing up 18 events in 13 countries, with the last one taking place in Valencia. So how is the M6 equipped for the job?
The 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 is capable of unleashing 560 hp and 680 Nm of torque. The power is transferred via a seven speed M double clutch gear box, allowing the car to reach 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The top speed is limited to a respectable 250 km/h. For more power and a higher top speed of 305 km/h, there is also the option of fitting it with M Driver’s Package.
