Painstaking manual work at the BMW M Manufaktur in Garching converted the high-performance base car into the BMW M8 MotoGP™ Safety Car, preparing it to appear as the course car in the world’s fastest motorcycle racing series
This process included the addition of numerous BMW M Performance Parts, many of which are available as retrofit parts for the BMW M8 production model. These emphasise the sporty appearance of the Safety Car and meet all the functional requirements for aerodynamics, cooling and lightweight construction.
The highlights include the BMW M Performance titanium sports exhaust system* and BMW M Performance Parts in carbon design, such as tailpipe finisher*, engine cover, rear diffuser and side skirts.
In order to complete the transformation from BMW M8 Competition to MotoGP™ Safety Car, special racing and safety features were also installed. These include a bonnet with ‘motorsport lock’, customised carbon flaps and the BMW M8 GTE rear wing.
The Safety Car is also illuminated by flashing special headlight rings, LED lights on the roof with bracket and a front grille LED flasher.
