Since 1964, Playboy’s given a car to every Playmate of the Year, from classics to roadsters and supersport cars. This year, the Playboy gave Hope Dworaczyk the BMW superbike S1000RR. The S1000RR is the epitome of performance motorcycling. The 999 cc inline 4 engine produces a staggering 193 hp on its way to a stratospheric 14,200 rpm. 83 lb-ft of torque is produced at 9,750 rpm
The tradition of Playboy giving its Playmate of the Year a car to go with the title’s customary monetary prize of $100,000 started in 1964. That year, Donna Michelle won herself a 1964.5 Ford Mustang convertible. It was painted in a shade known as Playmate Pink, and the gift coincided with the launch of the original ‘Stang.
Playmate: Hope Dworaczyk
Car: BMW S1000RR
Details: Though motorcycles are often given to PMOYs, the BMW S1000R is the first bike-for-car substitution. Perhaps it’s because the S1000RR is no ordinary bike. With 193 hp and a 192-mph top speed, this is the fastest literbike ever produced. It’s got more power than a Hayabusa, and it costs up to $15,000 fully loaded.
