MORE POWER FOR SAFETY.The new BMW XM Label Red MotoGP™ Safety Car.

The BMW XM Label Red will have a leading role on the track in the upcoming season: as the new MotoGP™ safety car. For the first time, a high-performance automobile with an electrified drive, the performance-enhanced M HYBRID system, will lead the field in the premier class of motorcycle racing. "It is a logical step that the most powerful BMW M car we have ever brought to market will be the new spearhead of our safety car fleet in MotoGP," said BMW M CEO Franciscus van Meel. Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of MotoGP™ rights holder Dorna Sports, is also looking forward to the new addition: "With the BMW XM Label Red Safety Car, the fleet of high-performance cars in use in MotoGP will be strengthened by another real highlight. We are already looking forward to seeing it on the track in Qatar."

The safety car needs a lot of power for its tasks. During a race, it drives onto the track, places itself in front of the leading vehicle and keeps the field together until safety on the track is restored - for example, when debris has been cleared away.

The BMW XM Label Red has no shortage of power. A V8 engine and an electric motor integrated into the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission together produce a system output of 550 kW (748 hp). For its use as a safety car, the electrified high-performance SAV is fitted with a range of special equipment, including the front flashers, the safety car roof bar, a front splitter, Recaro seats, 6-point racing harnesses and a fire extinguisher. The new safety car will make its first appearance at the start of the 2024 season in Qatar in March, when it will also sport the typical BMW M livery.

    Official data on power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP.
