M Pooooowwweeerrrrr!

We briefly mentioned the BMW M235i Racing, specifically for those who are interested to take up racing. Here are the full details.

Let’s start with the engine up front. A 2,979cc, six cylinder petrol, six cylinder petrol with TwinPower Turbo technology generates about 333hp to the rear wheels. ABS, DSC and traction control comes as standard to ensure that the M235i Racing can be handled safely. The car also comes with mechanical limited-slip differential, FIA-certified safety cell and a modern safety fuel tank.  On top of this come components from the BMW M Performance Parts range, such as the rear and front spoilers, diffuser and carbon wing mirrors deck the cars.

Stopping power comes from 4 pot calipers up front and 1 pot at the rear. KW dampers and H&R suspension bits keep the car’s body roll in check. 18″ alloys provide the grip while the Recaro full racing bucket with 6 point harness keeps the driver snug.

With a price of 59,500.00 Euros (excl. VAT) and impressive performance figures, the production-based coupé meets all the basic requirements of a successful entry-level racing car. The plan is initially for the car to be used in series and events such as the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. Looking ahead, the BMW M235i Racing should also be successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers.

About Jack Lee

Jack Lee is an unqualified petrol head (some say, to be one, you have to own an Alfa Romeo) who is disappointed with cars which are getting more and more electronics and the lack of interest in cars shown by today's youths in general. He owns an almost 20 year car from Germany, which has almost 50:50 weight distribution, 3 pedals (manual, FTW!) and believes that everyone should spin at the last corner of Sepang circuit at least once in their life. He also holds the distinction in TCG as the person with the lightest right foot, of course, when compared with his colleagues' mutated cast iron right foot.
