The BMW i4 M50 safety car appears very colourful and painted in black with green accents at various places. These green stripes signify the sedan's zero-emission character. The signature BMW kidney grille, front air vents, bonnet, side profile and rear bumper get the green accents. Front bumper, side sills get BMW M series' signature Red and Blue colour accents. Emergency flickering light on the roof of the car signifies its safety-car character.

This four-door electric performance sedan is equipped with two electric motors, each powering one axle. The two electric motors generate 544 hp of combined power output. It can accelerate to 0-100 kmph in around four seconds.

To enhance its performance, BMW's M Division has added M-specific chassis, larger brakes alongside making aerodynamic improvements.

Markus Flasch, BMW M CEO, has said that while the production version of the four-door Gran Coupé will hit the market later this year, the car will make its global debut at the racetrack later this month. "There could not be a more appropriate safety car for MotoE than the BMW i4 M50 – pure performance, fully-electric. We are looking forward to the premiere in Spielberg," he further added.
