Check Out The 2022 BMW M2 CS Racing MotoGP Safety Car

Let us all welcome the newly-released MotoGP safety car, the BMW M2 CS Racing. This most recent acquisition to the BMW M safety vehicle fleet is a pure-bred racecar made into a safety vehicle in the festivity of BMW’s celebrations for the 50th anniversary of its founding. The car has a striking BMW M livery, new front lights, and a roof-mounted light bar. It shouldn’t be challenging to spot.

It’s eventually here! BMW has finally unveiled the first vehicle that sports the authentic M symbols. It’s not astonishing that the M2 CS Racing sports purple, blue and red colors initially seen on the 3.0 CSL. The iconic look was teased in November 2021 when they announced that all M and M Performance cars would get distinctive logos by 2022.

Because it was initially developed for the racetrack, BMW made minor changes to make adjustments for MotoGP Safety Car transformation. The tweaks are restricted to a minimum, as M2 CS Racing already has a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six that can produce up to 444bhp. The M2 CS Racing features an electronic limited-slip differential with preload and separate cooling like the standard race car. It also features a roll cage for rigidity and safety and other racing car features like an eight-point harness, Recaro seats, a fire-fighting system, and air jacks. In addition, the carbon roof and customized driveshafts help differentiate this M2 CS Racing from a road-going model.

A Great Way To Conclude The First-Gen M2 CS

BMW M has been teaming with MotoGP since 1999 and presents cars to the fastest qualifying rider each year. In the past two years, Fabio Quartararo took home an M5 CS in 2021 and an M2 CS for 2020. Before that, Marc Marquez grabbed the title for seven consecutive years and won an M3 X4 M Competition, an M3 MS, M4 CS M2, M6 Convertible M4, and an M6 Convertible.
The first-generation BMW 2 Series just went out of the show following a remarkable run from 2014 until 2022, and among the final models were the top CS variants of the coupe with two doors. With the S55 from the M3 rather than the more tuned N55 that they’re typically outfitted with, the CS models are enjoyable to drive and highly efficient machines. Therefore, it is only natural that the race version of the car is being prepared to serve as officially designated MotoGP Safety Car in the top motorcycle racing series this year.
