BMW X6 M announced as safety car for Moto GP
8 April 2009

Moto GP fans will be among the first people to see the new BMW X6 M on the move.

The new 547bhp performance SUV will be the official safety car for the Moto GP series, and will take to the track for the first time this weekend at the season opener in Qatar.

The Qatar event will come just days after the public debut of the new BMW X6 M at this week’s New York show.

The X6 M will be supported by a range of BMW safety cars, including an M6 and an M3.
