We spent the last few days in California driving a series of new BMW and MINI cars – including the almighty BMW M2. Our driving impressions will be out on Tuesday at 6PM EST. While in Monterey, we also had the unique opportunity to see from up-close the recently unveiled BMW M2 MotoGP Safety Car.

In person, the new Safety Car looks even better; its aggressive lines, the M livery and the additional M Performance Parts make this M2 quite a looker.


Speaking of the M Perforamance Parts, BMW chose the Safety Car as the runaway model to feature its entire range of carefully designed and engineered parts. The racing wing, M carbon ceramic brakes and the Michelin Cup 2 add even more character and performance to this M2.


Inside, the rear seats have been stripped out while the front seats are now made by Recaro.

An adjustable coilover suspension the carbon fiber blades applied to the body and side skirts, the diffuser insert at the rear are just a few of the aerodynamic improvements.
