It obtains a quick and agile car to keep speed with MotoGP racing bikes and fortunately the BMW M version is up to the task, giving protection cars (or what we'd call pace cars on this side of the Atlantic) to the chase organizers of the top-level motorcycle racing series.
The latest cars to complete the duties have been the 1 Series M Coupes and the X6 M crossover, but now BMW is introducing a new M6 coupe to the combine. It will debut in safety cars appearance as imaged above at the Nürburgring this weekend.
While it's uncertain whether any alterations have been made to the 552 horsepower twin-turbo V8, the M6 MotoGP protection car has been improved with new spoiler’s front and rear, special lighting tools and BMW's conventional blue, blue and red striping on a white body. And if we were gambling men, we would put our money on some upgrades to the suspension, brakes and tires, too.
