2018 BMW M5 MotoGP Safety Car

The new BMW M5 is the basis for the company's latest MotoGP Safety Car. The Safety Car will lead a field of high-tech racing motorcycles through a diverse array of hazardous conditions. BMW has a long history with MotoGP going back to 1999, typically creating their latest safety car from the latest M design. The new M5 features a new AWD M xDrive producing 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque thanks to a twin-turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 gives them a great starting point.

The aerodynamics were modified with carbon fiber M Performance parts including the front kidney grille, air breather slats, door mirro caps, side sills, rear diffusor, and rear spoiler. Another M Performance part is the titanium sport exhaust with carbon fiber exhaust tips.

Newer parts include a front splitter prototype specific to the MotoGP, bucket seats from the M4 GTS, racing hood latches, and an LED light bar on the roof.
