BMW has introduced the new M235i Track Edition in the Netherlands. BMW describes the track edition as an “exclusive” and “sporty” version of the M235i Coupe. The BMW M235i Track Edition features an M Performance body kit that includes a front splitter, revised side skirts and a rear diffuser. The model also has a black grille, a trunk-mounted spoiler, a stainless steel sports exhaust system and 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels.
Changes to the interior are limited but include aluminum pedals, a carbon fiber / Alcantara handbrake lever and an Alcantara-wrapped sport steering wheel with a race display.
Powering the BMW M235i Track Edition is a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that churns out 326 PS (240 kW) of max power and 450 Nm (322 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission which allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, before hitting an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
