If you are wondering what is the point of having a safety car in a video game, the simple answer to that question is “marketing opportunity” for the car maker that has supplied it! BMW has won the chance to include their new M4 in the Gran Turismo 6 as the official safety car of the game.
BMW M4 Safety Car already exists in the real world and has pacing a full DTM season in its resume. The main purpose of the car in GT6 is to promote the M Performance Parts for the M4, so it is fully-kitted out with every extra available in the catalog.
The main highlights of BMW M4 Safety Car include carbon fiber splitter system, side splitters, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon fiber rear diffuser, black BMW kidney grilles, black side gills, and titanium exhaust system with carbon fiber exhaust tips.
The only things setting this car apart from a normal M4 M Performance is a special wrap in BMW racing colors by 3M, a set of LED grille-mounted flashers and LED rooftop light bar. An example of the car is currently on display at the SEMA show, where visitors can give it a go in Gran Turismo 6 simulator consoles provided by BMW.
