The Indianapolis MotoGP race takes places this weekend and BMW is putting on a BMW M Experience for a lucky group of 50 M enthusiasts who have signed up for the event, which starts today and ends Sunday.

Besides the special access to the MotoGP race and paddocks, BMW will be providing these enthusiasts with hot laps in M safety cars driven by M school instructors, as well as a personal presentation of the F10 M5 sedan by M executives. They will also get the world's first look at the F10 M5 safety car, the first pics of which we've posted below.

We'll have full details on the F10 M5 safety car soon, but what know so far is that it features an Akropovic lightweight titanium race exhaust, high performance coilover suspension, gloss black 20" wheels, front spoiler lip, trunk spoiler, Recaro pole position bucket seats (on power seat rails), race brake pads.

It also features black (either matte or gloss) side gill trim and kidney grilles, dispensing with the factory chrome versions for a sportier look. Our guess is that both parts will be available as part of the catalog of F10 M5 BMW Performance Parts.

Watch for more details/media on the F10 M5 (including safety car) and our coverage of the BMW M Experience @ Indy MotoGP throughout the weekend!

Saturday 8/27/11 UPDATE:

We've updated with even more photos of the F10 M5 safety car, official safety car of the MotoGP, which is making its debut this weekend to M VIP at the Indianapolis MotoGP race.

The new photos feature the M5 safety car posing on the race track, as well as some pics from the police escort it received from the track to downtown Indianapolis. It drew quite a crowd in front of the hotel as you can see!

Ha. I knew it was only a matter of time before we saw black side gills for the F10 M5. I didn't expect it to come directly from the factory, though.

Awesome! If only we got those at the dealership. They should make a limited run of these without the lights on the top. How about lights are an option.

If Reeves can pull it off, you're talking to a buyer

M5 + Akra = winning.
Very good marketing Btw.
When I heard the SLS AMG pace car at the F1 Singapore GP, I almost switched to Benz. The sound was just insane.

If only BMW would make the M5 F11. Now that would be a sleeper.

I personally like the safety car strips on the new M5 post within the news section on this website.

Anyone done something like that yet?

I like the stripes, just a bit too big. They do let you envision the car in other colors: Light blue, interlagos and Imola red!
