BMW has announced plans to introduce the M6 MotoGP safety car at this weekend's M Festival at the 24 Hour Nurburgring race in which it will lead the M Corso parade.

The company declined to release details, but the car features a front splitter, a gloss black grille and a prominent rear wing. There's also a light bar and BMW M livery.

It remains unclear if there have been any performance modifications, but the standard model has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
