BMW M235i Racing will be available to customers starting next year

Article by Anita Panait, on November 22, 2013

BMW Motorsport is expanding its range within the BMW Sports Trophy Customer Racing program with the new BMW M235i Racing. Starting next year, private BMW teams and drivers could avail of this production-based coupé at a price of EUR59,500 (exclusive of VAT). Meeting all the basic requirements of an entry-level racing car, the BMW M235i Racing is initially planned for use in events like the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

The BMW M235i Racing could also prove successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers. One could also easily recognise the motorsport genes in the production version of the BMW M235i Coupé, thanks to its aerodynamically optimised body design.

The BMW M235i Racing is powered by what is considered as the most powerful gasoline engine so far for a BMW M Performance Automobile -- a 2,979ccm six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that could provide up to 333hp (245kW). The BMW M235i Racing features motorsport-specific driving aids like ABS, DSC and traction control, allowing even newbies to handle the vehicle surely and safely.

The car also features a mechanical limited-slip differential that is also available for the BMW M235i Coupé in the original BMW Parts range. The BMW M235i Racing also features FIA-certified safety cell and the modern safety tank as well as BMW M Performance Parts components like rear and front spoilers, diffusor and carbon wing mirrors.
