The M235i has its basis on the M235Mi Coupe flagship and comes equipped with a powerful and upgraded two-door 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine that produces a 245 kW- up to 5kW.
In terms of car racing interior safety, the car also enhances a full FIA roll cage, safety tank, stability control, and anti-lock brakes.

Jens Marquardt continues: “While the BMW Z4 GT3 spearheads our range, the new M235i Racing means we are now also excellently positioned for the coming years in the field of production-based racing cars.”
The BMW M235i Racing car will be on sale starting next year at the price of $89,890 or 59,500 euros. As for the rear-wheel-drive 2 Series Coupe which replaces the seven-year-old BMW 1 Series Coupe, the car will have starting prices under $50,000.
