BMW Motorsport’s second customer racing-car, the M235i Racing, is in the making at the company’s plant in Leipzig. The German carmaker has released an all-new video showing how the entry-level BMW customer race car is built. The M235i is the first M performance range for the track.
Surprisingly, most of the assembly work as seen in the video is done by hand. The BMW M235i Racing shown in the footage is done by hand as well. The M235i Racing is powered by a mildly-tweaked 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 329bhp, roundabout 7bhp more than the production car’s 322bhp.
The M235i Racing can be seen in action soon in events like the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, as well as international BMW Sports Trophy events.
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.
