How do M Performance Parts affect the aerodynamics and weight of a BMW car?
Our parts are not just for show – they really provide extra performance by offering the best aerodynamics and optimal weight. We have a relatively large influence on both areas. When it comes to weight, the equation is simple: the heavier the vehicle part, the more weight you can save by replacing it with an M Performance Part.
When designing aerodynamically effective parts, great importance is attached to a balanced drive. Development takes place in the wind tunnel in order to match design with aerodynamic requirements. Our M Performance Parts increase the downforce and thus the driving stability at the same time. Depending on the vehicle, some front and rear spoilers can only be installed in combination with one another.
What role does your involvement in the MotoGP™ Safety Car play for BMW M Performance Parts?
Of course we are happy to be able to equip the MotoGP™ Safety Car. For us it is a big stage to show what we can do. That's why we always rely on the latest vehicle and use parts that will also be available for series production.
