THE BMW M240i RACING.

The entry-level model.

In 2014, BMW M Motorsport established a production-based customer racing car – the BMW M235i Racing – in order to allow ambitious teams and drivers an affordable route into motorsport. The BMW M235i Racing received an extensive update and a new name for the 2019 season: BMW M240i Racing. The Evo package included optimised engine software and new end plates for the rear wing. The racing car is based on the BMW M240i Coupé, which is powered by one of the most powerful petrol engines developed for a BMW M Performance automobile to date: a straight six-cylinder with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. As well as TC America, the BMW M240i Racing is also used in the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring. In this series, many teams and drivers fight it out for the title in an independent BMW one-make cup, the BMW M240i Racing Cup, thrilling fans with spectacular battles on the iconic Nürburgring-Nordschleife in the process.
