BMWs new turn-key race car

Obviously just a render, but dem fender flares! I wish they had shown up on the M235i... I think this render looks 100% better than the coming M4.

I can't stop making visual comparisons to the E30 M3. The flares and their proportions really do the trick for me. Someone pointed out how sedate the grill area looks, but I like it, it reminds me of the straight, flat face on the E30.

Like I said. I REALLY wish this was the road-going M235i... I would have a new dream car.

[EDIT] looks like the M235i is NOT the 2-series M car. There is going to be an M2 as well... I guess the regular M235i is just a m-technic or m-sport model. I have hope once again.

lol I think the 235i uses the N55 so the "rating" is probably closer to 350hp

Stunning. I certainly hope they offer it with a manual trans and not just those soulless flappy paddles.

That would likely void the warranty.

Neither? Cars these days are so far from anything I want. Is it that hard to make a cheap manual rwd car that doesn't handle like a bag of dicks? Though, the new camaro is coming close. 2015 mustang is supposed to be not shitty IRS.

2015 Mustang is fugly man, looks like it has down syndrome. The Camaro interior is a full on plastic fail, kills the car for me.

Love the front end of the Mustang, not completely sold on the tail yet. Curious to see how it performs.
