German automaker BMW took the opportunity at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​to unveil its first-ever M3 Touring. The BMW M3 Touring is the safety car for MotoGP. Aside from the obvious changes meant for a safety car, the Mercedes-AMG C63 rival comes with a host of upgrades with M Performance parts.

The BMW M3 Touring MotoGP safety car comes in the famous three colors and bears the old-school BMW Motorsport decal, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the M division. The car will perform its first motorsport task at Silverstone at the beginning of August this year during the British GP.

The design updates for the BMW M3 Touring include a thick carbon fiber lip spoiler along with a pair of canards on each side of the bumper on the car’s front profile. An interesting change comes in the form of an optional exhaust system with the double stacked exhaust tips in the center of the rear bumper. The car also gets a carbon fiber diffuser that almost polarizes the rear profile, just like the front of the car.

Interestingly, these design elements are already present in the M3 sedan and also in the M4 Coupé. Like a typical MotoGP safety car, the BMW M3 Touring comes with roof lights and turn signals on the underside of the kidney grille. Although the carmaker has revealed the exterior of the car, the cabin remains a mystery.

Expect the BMW M3 Touring cabin to come with Recaro front seats with a four-point seat belt, emergency stop switch, safety crossbar and fuel extraction system.
