BMW M6 Safety Car Real Life replacing M5 in MotoGP

Share on :

Finally, German automaker, BMW has pulled the cover of their next-generation Safety Car that is based on the M6. This is the first time for the BMW M6 to take the duty. The BMW has taken the M6 to make its official debut this weekend at the M Festival; taking a turn around the famous Circuit, Nurburgring. According to plan, the M6 Safety Car will follow the footstep of the previous M Safety Cars for the MotoGP circuit, which include the BMW 1M MotoGP Safety Car and the current one, the M5 MototGP Safety Car.
However, before the M6 Safet Car starts its duty on helping out the likes of Ben Spies, Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi and defending champion, Casey Stoner, the car will act as the official safety car for the 24 Hour, which will be held in Nurburgring on Sunday.

The BMW M6 Safety Car is given a siren and an Akrapovic lightweight race exhaust system made of titanium. Another thing we can see on the appearance of the car is sponsorship decals placed on the side skirt. As a safety car, BMW replaces some parts of the car with the suitable ones, including a front spoiler made of carbon fiber composites, high rear wing, side grills, M-Performance all-black kidney grilles, mirrors and gun metal gray M sports wheels. Capping off the obvious external upgrades are factory carbon ceramic brakes in gold.

However, the German company does not unveil the details about the performance upgrade it has doled out for the new MotoGP safety car. If we see the BMW M6 standard trim, we will find a V8 bi-turbo engine that has ability to produce 552 horsepower. If the standard engine is still used, it should give a better performance, especially because BMW places a special Akrapovic exhaust system. The German company usually ekes out additional tweaks for their race safety car, so it can be expected that the M6 have amped things up further for its latest model.
