BMW have revealed the M235i Racecar that is set to compete in the VLN Endurance Championship and the Nürburgring 24 Hours on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, next year. Private BMW teams will now be able to buy the racecar for 59,500 Euros (excl. VAT) and compete in above events.
The M235i Racecar promises some serious performance figures that meets all the basic requirements of an entry level racecar. It’s powered by the same twin turbo inline-6 engine that is slightly tuned to produce more power (333bhp) than the production car. Add to that, the significant weight loss to meet race requirements and you’ve got a proper entry level racecar. Since BMW is targeting beginners, the car will retain driving aids such as ABS, DSC and traction control, for easier handling.
