Privateer teams and drivers now have the opportunity to line up at the BMW Sports Trophy Customer Racing events with the new BMW M235i race car. With a price of $80,000 without tax 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 Nurburgring 24 Hours on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife, Germany. Looking ahead, the BMW M235i Racing should also be successful on international stages for BMW Sports Trophy drivers.

"The basis our engineers had to start with when developing the racing version of the BMW M235i Racing was exceptionally good," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. "The production models from the BMW M Performance Automobiles range are already incredibly sporty. Because of this, we did not have to make many modifications in order to get the BMW M235i Coupé up and running as a racing car. BMW Motorsport can look back on a long tradition of allowing ambitious teams and drivers an affordable way into motor racing - and of offering them an absolutely competitive car. That was the case recently with the BMW M3 GT4, and that is now being superseded with the BMW M235i Racing. While the BMW Z4 GT3 spearheads our range, the new car means we are now also excellently positioned for the coming years in the field of production-based racing cars."

The motorsport genes are also easily recognizable in the production version of the BMW M235i Coupé, courtesy of the aerodynamically optimized body design. It is propelled by the most powerful petrol engine developed so far for a BMW M Performance Automobile: a six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. With a capacity of 2,979cc, the racing version is capable of generating 333 hp (245 kW).

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, which is also available for the BMW M235i Coupé in the original BMW Parts range. The racing car is also fitted with features such as the FIA-certified safety cell and the modern safety 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.
