It takes a fast and agile car to keep pace with MotoGP racing bikes. Fortunately the BMW M division is up to the task, providing safety cars (or what we'd call pace cars on this side of the Atlantic) to the race organizers of the top-level motorcycle racing series.

The most recent vehicles to perform the duties have been the 1 Series M Coupe and the X6 M crossover, but now BMW is introducing a the new M6 coupe to the mix. It'll debut in safety car guise as pictured above at the Nürburgring this weekend.

While it's unclear whether any modifications have been made to the 552-horsepower twin-turbo V8, the M6 MotoGP safety car has been upgraded with new spoilers front and rear, special lighting equipment and BMW's traditional blue, blue and red striping on a white body. And if we were betting men, we'd put our money on some upgrades to the brakes, suspension and tires, too.

      The F13 M6 Safety Car has an upgraded brake system among other features. If you can see the gold caliper peeking out from behind the left rim, that denotes it has the optional M Ceramic Brake Package that is finished in Matte Gold. $ It is an $8,700 option.

      It's ok, but the 6 cars are so much bigger without more interior that I'd rather go E92 with a Dinan blower. I like the apparently CFRP splitter under the front bumper...I think I've found a similar good spot to put a splitter on my E46 M3 and a couple of HID driving lights without fouling up the cooling air flow to the radiator....
