Earlier this year, BMW announced their newest racing machine: the BMW M235i Racing. Then just a couple of months later, BMW delivered 15 M235i Racing cars to the privateer teams competing in VLN.

The 333-hp racing car, which is based on the BMW M235i Coupé production model, is powered by a straight six-cylinder engine with a capacity of 2,979 cc.

Motorsport-specific driving aids such as ABS, DSC and traction control ensure that the motorsport newcomers can also handle the BMW M235i Racing surely and safely. The car also comes with mechanical limited-slip differential.


BMW M235i Racing is currently being used in series and events at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, including the VLN Endurance Championship, the Nürburgring 24 Hours, and the RCN Rundstrecken-Challenge Nürburgring (Circuit Racing Challenge Nürburgring).

BMW M235i Racing costs 59,500 Euros (plus VAT) and our sources say it’s a preview for the BMW M2.
