Whilst we recently reported that the Alfa Romeo 4C would be the official car for the WTCC, BMW has revealed that as the official car for MotoGP from 2014 onwards would be the BMW M4 Coupe. As the older M3 retires, the BMW M4 Coupé would be a natural progression of these fundamental ideas. The new six-cylinder turbo engine combines the benefits of the high-speed normal-aspiration power unit with the strengths of turbo technology.
MotoGP and BMW M GmbH have proved to be perfect partners. This is underlined by the length of their cooperation: 2014 will be the 16th season. Whether on two wheels or four, the spectacular Motorcycle World Championship and the manufacturer of exclusive high-performance automobiles share values such as spearheading innovation, dynamics, highest quality and international commitment.
Ensuring the world’s best two-wheel drivers are as safe as possible at top speeds of up to 340 kilometres per hour is MotoGP organiser Dorna Sports’ main concern. Consequently, high-performance safety cars play a key role. BMW M GmbH, with its hightech cars that effortlessly cope with the special demands of the race track, is the perfect choice.
