New BMW M6 MotoGP Safety Car at M-Festival

New BMW M6 MotoGP Safety Car at M-Festival

A new MotoGP Safety Car is heading to the Nurburgring’s M-Festival starting this weekend. Following the 1M and M5, there is a new BMW M6 MotoGP Safety Car for next year’s bike championship.

Like the F10M M5 last year, the new 2013 F12M M6 Safety Car received an extensive package with lightweight carbon fiber parts and technical upgrades. The exterior has a front bumper lip, side mirrors and adjustable rear wing in carbon fiber. Polycarbonate side and rear windows are included as well.

At the back, the M6 MotoGP will come with a special lightweight titanium race exhaust system from Akrapovic providing a combination between weight saving and an improvement in the sound track. Special warning and safety lights are placed on top of the roof and the reflecting racing livery was delivered by 3M.

Inside the cabin, BMW has added a roll cage, two racing Recaro bucket seats, controls for the safety lights and an M steering wheel in Alcantara. The rear seats have been removed.

The BMW M6 will do its first laps on the legendary Nordschleife on Friday afternoon leading the M Festival’s M Corso. Stay tuned for more and the official release this weekend at the M-Festival on the Nurburgring Nordschleife.
