Thumbs up BMW 1M MotoGP Safety Car Unveiled! Kicks Off This Weekend

BMW 1M Coupe MotoGP Safety Car Unveiled!

The 1M MotoGP Safety Car was recently unveiled and will be one of the M cars serving as a safety car for the 2011 MotoGP, the world's premier motorcycling championship, which kicks off this weekend! But the 1M coupe won't be serving its safety duties in regular form. It has been gussied up, sporting an Akrapovic exhaust, large rear wing, large M striping, black wheels, black exhaust tips, vented hood, black grilles, and a front spoiler chin - some of which we hope will become available accessories.

We've also posted a bonus shot (courtesy of Autogespot) of the 1M MotoGP safety car with an S1000RR, carbon edition (180hp, tinted windshield, Akropovic titanium exhaust and lots of carbon fiber).

The 2011 MotoGP season kicks off this Sunday with the Grand Prix of Qatar on March 20th, where we hope to see the 1M MotoGP Safety Car for the first time. Here is the full 2011 MotoGP schedule.

Looks like rear tires are wider than stock 1M! Maybe Michelin Pilot Super Sports

Front tires appear to be regular Pilot Sport.

Looking great!

Good news is the MotoGP will be shown on Speed, hopefully they'll have a small segment on the Pace Cars (as they had something for the Daytona 24). Would love to hear that Akra exhaust!

183 hp@rw? Wow... must be something to behold...

As for the Akrapovic exhaust sound, I'm not sure at all those cars have a different exhaust than a standard 1M, it may just be a sticker on the back bumper because Akra is a major sponsor of MotoGP (they after all make mostly motorcycle exhausts, why would they spend the $ to develop a 1M exhaust system just for a couple of pace cars?), and those exhaust tips look just the same as the standard 1M exhaust tips (just painted black) to me...
