Just as Mercedes locking down Formula 1 safety cars deal, BMW has been the sole provider of safety cars for MotoGP. This is the latest they’ve provided for the world’s biggest bike racing event, the new BMW M6. The white M6 with BMW racing colors and a track package is such a looker. It replaces the 1M Coupe safety car after only one year in service.
But who cares really. The 1M was great, but the new M6 is powered by a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine developing 555 PS, which using a seven-speed M Double Clutch transmission can take the car from nought to 60mph in slightly over 4 seconds.
The M6 safety car, as mentioned, is fitted with a new aero kit. BMW has not revealed much about it, but from what we’re seeing, it includes a front splitter with LED lights, different wing mirrors, and a fixed rear wing. The safety car obviously features a light bar as well.
Before starting its MotoGP business, this M6 will debut at the M Festival during the Nurburgring 24 Hours race.
