From the beginning, we knew our “Sakhir Inferno” M4 was going to have plenty of exposure to track events, and in keeping with the motorsport theme we began planning a custom roll bar for added rigidity and rollover protection. One of our many stipulations was that the bar had to be completely bolt-in for easy installation and removal. With the launch of the DTM Safety Car M4 earlier this year, our goal was solidified, and shortly after our M4 arrived we set to work.
Using the M4 Safety Car as a reference, we brought in an expert fabricator to create our own version of the competition roll bar. When tackling a project like this, it helps to have experience on your side, and this person has plenty. The fabricator we contacted has a history of building Grand Am, American Le Mans Series, and Rolex Sports Car Series roll cages with other custom fabrication work.
With the SEMA Show rapidly approaching, our M4 is undergoing significant modification, and this race-spec roll bar will be a major component of this project. Stay tuned for more photos and progress!
