Fast, spectacular, MotoGPᵀᴹ: In 2017, the motorcycle premiere class once again showed off its finest in motorsports. After the highly-anticipated season finale in Valencia (Spain), Marc Márquez wins his fourth MotoGPᵀᴹ title. In the overall standing, the Honda driver easily ranked first with 37 points ahead of Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati). On his way to the head of the motorcycle premiere class, the 24-year-old Spaniard recorded six victories and six other podium finishes. Márquez was only beaten in crash statistics: He has 27 falls, putting him behind MotoGPᵀᴹ rookie Sam Lowes (31).
Star guest at the MotoGPᵀᴹ Finale – the BMW M5 Safety Car.
The MotoGPᵀᴹ season finale welcomes another star: the BMW M5 MotoGPᵀᴹ Safety Car. Since August 2017, the new BMW M5 with M xDrive (Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 10.5; CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 241) is on everyone's lips. The 600-hp 4.4-litre series standard V8 petrol engine powers the sixth generation of the M5 in 3.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. Thanks to the newly-developed M xDrive, the 750 Nm torque can be perfectly controlled. For use as the lead vehicle of the MotoGPᵀᴹ, the engine was overhauled and the M5 was retrofitted with M Performance Parts. The LED light bar and the blue LEDs on the front apron of the BMW M5 MotoGPᵀᴹ Safety Car clearly show who is in charge on the racetrack – and can even slow down Marc Márquez, Andrea Dovizioso or Maverick Viñales.
