A surprise new car will be coming to Gran Turismo 6 later this month: the BMW M4 'M Performance' Safety Car.
Detailed in full on the official Gran Turismo website and the off-shoot 'Pit Stop' blog, the M4 Safety Car will be officially introduced to the PS3-exclusive racing game in an update scheduled for sometime in November.
No specific release dates have been cited at time of writing, but developer Polyphony Digital has revealed that more extensive tuning and customisation options for the game's BMW M4 Coupe road car will also be introduced in the update.
Polyphony also expects online league races to benefit from the "new level of realism" that comes with having an authentic safety car features in Gran Turismo 6.
The M4 Safety Car that will eventually be featured in Gran Turismo 6 is based upon a version created by BMW North America to display at this year's SEMA custom car show, as a one-off demonstration of the 'M Performance' parts buyers of the real life car can specify as optional extras.
