Nürburgring, 18th June 2014: The BMW M235i Coupé’s motorsport genes are clear to see in the production version, thanks to the aerodynamically optimised chassis design. And the car is driven by the most powerful petrol engine ever developed for a BMW M Performance car: a straight six-cylinder with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. With a capacity of 2,979 cm³, the racing version generates a mighty 333 hp (245 kW).
BMW Motorsport will compete with a real eye-catcher at this weekend’s Nürburgring 24 Hours (DE). The BMW Motorsport design team has given the BMW M235i Racing with the appropriate start number 235 an extraordinary look, reminiscent of the famous Art Cars of former years, for the race in the Eifel Mountains.
Motorsport-specific driver aids, such as ABS, DSC and traction control, ensure that the BMW M235i Racing can also be driven safely by those new to motorsport. The equipment also includes a mechanical limited-slip differential, which is also available for the BMW M235i Coupé in the original BMW Parts range, and built-in components like the FIA-approved safety cage. The BMW M Performance Parts range has also provided components, including the rear and front spoilers, the diffusor and the carbon wing mirrors.
