The BMW M2 Gets Decked Out In Gold To Become MotoGP's Badass New Safety Car

You know how the new BMW M2 is actually more like the old M3s used to be? Well, MotoGP just got the best version if it yet, with the M Division’s vintage livery and some gold paint all around.

The BMW M2 is a 365 horsepower rear-wheel drive coupe that’s lighter than an M4/M3 and also available with a manual gearbox. What’s not to love? Still, if you need some help imagining what a BMW M2 GTS would look like, have a peek at MotoGP’s new safety car.

BMW will continue to supply the MotoGP series with safety cars until at least 2020. These vehicles are hand-assembled at BMW M along with the rest of BMW’s MotoGP fleet, and the list of upgrades for their M2s includes a new front splitter with a more aggressive body kit all around, a carbon diffuser, sport exhausts, golden accessories like a half-cage, a carbon fiber wing and the wheels, plus a light bar.

Lose the light bar and the ads, and you’ve got a product.
