The 1M MotoGP Safety Car was recently unveiled and will be one of the M cars serving as a safety car for the 2011 MotoGP, the world’s premier motorcycling championship. But the 1M coupe won’t be serving its safety duties in regular form.

Renowned BMW tuning house Alpina has brought its latest F10/F11 creations to the Geneva auto show. Both the Alpina F10 sedan and F11 touring boast 507hp / 700Nm torque from the 4.4L V8 twin-turbo motor, mated to a ZF 8 peed sport automatic transmission (“Switch-tronic”). 0-100kmh (62 mph) is accomplished in 4.7 seconds for the F10 B5 and 4.8 seconds for the F11 B5.
The AC Schnitzer 99d generates only 99g/km CO2 – that’s less than any standard BMW vehicle available at present.
And despite this, driving pleasure is guaranteed thanks to 190 HP / 140 kW. The 99d accelerates from 0 – 100 in an electrifying 6.9 s and has a top speed of 235 km/h – a vehicle with all the sporting genes, in fact a true AC Schnitzer. And with a fuel consumption of just 3.8 litres diesel per 100 km.
So how does this Concept Car by AC … CONTINUED
