2015 Geneva Motor Show: BMW M4 MotoGP Safety Car Unveiled

The BMW M4 MotoGP safety car has finally made its way to the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the model being already previewed with a water injection system. The carmaker has made the best out of it to showcase it at the event.

This is a premiere for the BMW, as the water is injected into the collector, allowing a closer ignition “to the optimum value by lowering the tendency of the unit to knock.” But to achieve that, the BMW M4 Coupe would need a 5-liter tank installed in the trunk.

Every movement, the valves as well as the ignition system is controlled via the car`s sensors with connects all that with the engine. For a proper work, the car needs to refill the water tank every five stops.

We are not sure how much more power the BMW M4 will be producing with this new water injection system, but it would be definitely higher than the stock 41 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque, for its 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo unit.
