BMW has recently announced that the 2012 M6 Coupe is the safety car for MotoGP and the model will be introduced at the M Festival at the 24 Hour Nurburgring race this weekend.

According to the German based car manufacturer, the 2012 BMW M6 Coupe will lead the M Corso parade this weekend at the 24 Hour Nurburgring race. Even if the new BMW M6 Coupe is the official safety car for MotoGP, the company didn’t say anything about possible modifications to its body or engine, but we know for a fact that it will come with a gloss black grille, a front splitter, a prominent rear wing, BMW M livery and a light bar.

As a quick reminder, the all-new BMW M6 Coupe has been officially presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month, and the vehicle is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 engine, which is developing a total output of 552 horsepower, with a peak torque of 680 Nm (502 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, which is allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds, before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph.
