BMW reveals M5 as the new MotoGP safety car

BMW reveals M5 as the new MotoGP safety car

BMW has retired the current M2 safety car with meaner and faster M5. The M5 MotoGP safety car will debut at the final round of the season in Valencia, Spain.

In MotoGP trim, the M5 wears a smattering of M Performance parts designed to make it look (and go, in some cases) faster. The pouting front splitter is a prototype, developed specifically for the MotoGP, while the bucket seats have been lifted from the M4 GTS. At the back you get carbon-fibre exhaust tips and a mean-looking diffuser, along with a carbon lip spoiler. As you’d expect of a safety car, the body is finished in a racy paint job with contrasting copper-coloured wheels. This one’s a real looker.

Power in the safety car comes from the same twin-turbo V8 as the standard road car, with 591bhp and 750Nm powering all four wheels through the M xDrive all-wheel drive system. The 0-100kmph sprint takes just 3.4 seconds which is 0.8 seconds faster than the outgoing M5 in standard trim and the derestricted top speed is 305km/h.
