Every time BMW comes out with a new M model, it’s almost certain to join their fleet of MotoGP safety and support vehicles, with the Germans now creating a one-off hardcore version of their M2 coupe.
It was made not only to keep MotoGP motorcyclists safe, but also to parade the brand’s M Performance parts catalog for the M2, as well as the division’s capabilities with a few prototype components.
Retrofit production parts that will soon be available to M2 owners include M Performance-branded exhaust system with carbon finishers, carbon fiber aero bits, coilover suspension, alcantara steering wheel, carbon fiber interior trims and more.
BMW M engineers also threw in prototype versions of a carbon-ceramic brake system derived from the M3 and M4 models, front splitter and fixed rear wing, along with gold rims and interior accents.
For its role on the track, the M2 MotoGP Safety Car was fitted with a number of race-spec components, ranging from a roll cage, Recaro seats and a fire distinguisher inside, to LED strobe lights and special Michelin Cup tires.
