After its debut at the final race of the 2017 season, BMW M has just announced the BMW M5 as the 2018 MotoGP™ Safety Car. The model’s inclusion as the safety car marks the first time that BMW M xDrive will be used on a course car.
Modifying the car for the 2018 season was an exciting task for BMW engineers. Taking priority was the TwinPower Turbo, 600hp engine, which received an overhaul allowing the car to speed from 0-63mph in just 3.4 seconds.
A range of tailor-made components were developed too, including unique indicators, roof-mounted flat line lights, a new rear diffuser, rear spoiler, side sills, and an enhanced front kidney grille.
