진정한 핫카에 오른 BMW 1시리즈 M쿠페가 2011 모토GP의 세이프트카로 변신했다.

Munich. The motorcycle road racing world championship – or MotoGP – ranks among the world’s most popular and spectacular sporting events. The involvement of BMW M GmbH in motorcycle racing’s top-echelon event now enters its 13th year. To ensure the safety of the practice runs and the race itself, BMW M GmbH is providing the official Safety Car along with a raft of other high-performance vehicles for use by the Dorna Sports management team and IRTA officials.

 

At the curtain raiser on 19th March, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe will for the first time be deployed as the official Safety Car for the MotoGP events – in advance of its market launch late in April. The BMW Safety Car is a one-off built by BMW M GmbH specifically for this race series. Only the 250 kW/340 hp straight-six M TwinPower Turbo engine and the entire drivetrain were taken over unchanged from the production model.

 

In the interests of weight optimisation, the BMW Safety Car comes with a carbon fibre-reinforced bonnet featuring additional large air vents, as well as polycarbonate side and rear windows. A special lightweight titanium race exhaust system not only saves weight but also delivers a captivating sound for the benefit of the spectators. Complementing the discreet spoiler lip on the boot lid there is now an adjustable rear wing to provide the requisite downforce. On the Safety Car the aerodynamically honed front apron with its precisely defined air ducting, including Air Curtains, features an additional splitter integrated on the underside of the apron.  

   

The interior of the BMW Safety Car is a model of uncompromising purism. A rollover cage bolted behind the B-pillar, the absence of rear seats, two racing bucket seats with 6-point safety belts, an M steering wheel in alcantara and a fire extinguisher are all standard in the Safety Car.

 

The suspension technology of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe was specially adapted for the Safety Car. Its high-performance suspension system boasts an adjustable race track set-up that includes a sports-tuned chassis in which the dampers are independently adjustable for bump and rebound. The BMW Safety Car runs on 19-inch mixed tyres measuring 255/35 at the front and 285/30 at the rear. Vehicle height is variably selectable and the camber of the front and rear axle can be altered to suit the circuit topography. The braking system of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, already designed for extremely high demands, is replaced in the Safety Car with a six-piston fixed-calliper racing brake system.

 

The deployment of the brand-new BMW 1 Series M Coupe Safety Car marks the continuation of BMW M GmbH’s successful partnership – begun in 1999 – with Dorna Sports, the organisers of the MotoGP World Championship. With a fleet of eight vehicles, BMW is supporting the safe running of the motorcycle world championship in the current race season. As well as the official BMW 1 Series M Coupe Safety Car, this year sees two further reserve Safety Cars from BMW M GmbH present at the track: a BMW X6 M and a BMW M3. In addition, the organising team has been given a BMW X5 M for the Safety Officer and a BMW ActiveHybrid X6 for the stewards. On call this season as a Medical Car is a BMW 535i Touring. There will also be two Safety Bikes contributing to the safe running of race weekends: a BMW S 1000 RR and a BMW HP2 Sport. The ceremonial handover of the vehicles took place at BMW M in Garching-Hochbrück on 28th February 2011. It was on this occasion that Dr Kay Segler, Director of BMW M GmbH, and Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO Dorna Sports, made an advance announcement that the successful partnership would be extended until 2016, before sealing the agreement in a signing ceremony.

BMW 1시리즈 M 쿠페는 BMW 고성능 부문을 담당하고 있는 BMW M GmbH가 제작한 최초의 컴팩트 모델로써, 고성능 스포츠카의 매력적인 특징을 프리미엄 소형차에 그대로 옮겨 모터스포츠 특유의 역동성을 새로운 형태로 재현한다. M카 특유의 공기역학적 디자인과 함께 전장/전폭/전고 4,380/1420/1803mm로 기존 1시리즈 쿠페보다 더 짧아지고 낮아졌으나 전장은 55mm 길어져 최적의 비율로 다이내믹한 주행경험을 제공한다.

1시리즈 M 쿠페에는 모터스포츠에서 쌓은 BMW의 노하우가 집성된 엔진과 섀시 기술이 적용되어 BMW 특유의 민첩하고 역동적인 주행을 극대화한다. 3.0리터 직렬 6기통 M 트윈파워 터보 엔진을 탑재해 최고출력 340 마력, 최대토크 45.9kg.m의 강력한 힘을 발휘하며, 차량 곳곳에 적용된 에어로다이내믹 요소들로 인해 차량무게가 기존보다 4.4kg나 감소되었고, 이로 인해 0-100km/h 가속이 4.9초밖에 걸리지 않는 등 매우 민첩한 성능을 자랑한다.
