We’ve begun to realize that, short of giving its front-drive 2-series Active Tourer the MotoGP safety-car treatment, BMW might just be incapable of creating a boring MotoGP safety car. This is borne out by the automaker’s latest addition to its MotoGP roster, the M4 coupe, which is expectedly awesome. It joins the ranks of BMW’s other recent MotoGP safety cars, which include an M6 Gran Coupe, an M6 coupe, an M5 sedan and wagon, and even a BMW motorcycle “safety bike.”
Just like its bigger and more-powerful siblings—well, except the bike, of course—the M4 inherits the predictable complement of safety-car gear, such as a roof-mounted light bar, safety lights in the grille, black wheels, and a bitchin’ M GmbH stripe job. You’ll be able to see the hot new BMW M car safe-ing it up at the first MotoGP race in two weeks in Qatar, and we’ll be waiting until we can finally get behind the M4′s wheel. Which probably won’t be in two weeks.
