BMW M is heading into the 2016 MotoGP season with a safety car based on the new M2 Coupé
Unveiled in January 2016 the M2 Coupé, with its racing genes and distinctive style, has proven to be the perfect candidate for a MotoGP Safety Car. With a few modifications, the M2 is ready to take its place at the 2016 MotoGP.
Featuring a new six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology, a three-litre capacity engine and 370hp, the M2 Coupé is not out of place on the racetrack. To get this M model ready for its turn as Safety Car, the M2 Coupé was optimised by hand at the BMW M factory in Garching, M engineers added exclusive, tailor-made solutions and mandatory safety features and the M2 was equipped with extensive BMW M Performance Parts including lightweight carbon-ceramic brakes. The M engineers’ adaptations have resulted in outstanding racetrack speed dynamics, race-worthy traction and a striking appearance.
