BMW M235i Racing to scorch the tracks in 2014

BMW Motorsport the racing division of BMW has added BMW’s new baby the M235i into their fold. The M235i Racing is the first M performance range car for the track. 

The M235i Racing gets a race-tuned version of the already powerful-twin turbo 3-litre straight six engine producing 333bhp and 450Nm of torque. It gets a racing exhaust with racing catalytic converters, BMW M performance mechanical-Limited Slip Differential along with race-tuned ABS, DSC and traction control system. The suspension gets beefed up with H&R springs, KW dampers and H&R anti-roll bars at the front and rear, while the front gets 2-way anti-roll bars. The brakes get more bite with the high-performance motorsport braking system-Performance Friction (PFC) with 4-pot calipers in the front while the rear gets BMW M Performance 2-pot braking system. Inside, the Racing gets FIA-approved roll cage and RECARO Pro Racer SPG racing seats.

BMW Motorsport director, Jens Marquardt, said the production models of the 2 Series are incredibly sporty and they had to carry out very few modifications and essentials to turn it into a mean racing car. Their plan is to initially use the car in VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. The next step would be to make it successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers. BMW claims to have received 30 bookings for the M235i Racing.

The car is priced at 59,500 Euros (excluding VAT; Rs 50.78 lakh) and will be the entry-level racing car.  The M235i Racing will join the family with its motorsport siblings the M3 GT4, M3 DTM, Z4 GTE/GT3 and 320 TC . It is going to be an exciting time ahead for BMW fans.
