The new M2 safety car is based on the road-going version, but features a number of upgrades to get it ready for the track. As you can see, it has a fresh take on BMW’s signature stripes over white, offset by gold trim. It also wears a low-profile LED strobe light bar on the roof, supplemented by blue LEDs in the front grille and red diodes in place of the reversing lights.

The stripped-out cockpit incorporates a roll cage (adapted from the M4 GTS) eliminating rear seats, Recaro racing buckets with six-point harnesses, and an on-board fire extinguisher. BMW also fabricated an adjustable rear wing from carbon-reinforced plastic, and fitted it with Michelin Cup tires and carbon-ceramic brakes. BMW also fitted an M Performance exhaust system and intake.
