Here’s an idea for owners of 1-Series Coupes who want to dress up their car. This is a one-off BMW 1 Series M Coupe built specifically to serve as the Official Safety Car for the MotoGP series this year.

The entire drivetrain is claimed to be the same as the production car though – a 340 horsepower inline-six M TwinPower Turbo engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the only available gearbox option for the M Coupe.

Even though the engine may be the same, this car will go faster than a production model due to weight reduction techniques. The safety car comes with a carbon fiber bonnet with integrated air vents, polycarbonate side and rear windows, and a lightweight titanium race exhaust system. There’s also an adjustable rear wing.

In the interior, the rear seats are missing, while the front seats have been replaced by two racing bucket seats with six-point belts. There’s also a rollover cage bolted behind the B-pillar.

Look after the jump for the full image gallery.
