The brand new BMW M235i Racing has recently crashed on the famous German track, the Nurburgring, last weekend, while doing some racing.
The BMW M235i Racing may have been recently unveiled but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t ready for the racetrack and in fact it’s so ready for the circuit that it has even had its first crash. We’re talking about an incident happening on the Nordschleife last weekend, at the VLN race, but there is no word on what caused it. The video posted below is showing the M235i Racing colliding with a Porsche 911. We’re not sure what lead to the accident but it seems that the M235i Racing’s driver was taken to the hospital while the Porsche driver was unhurt.
As a small reminder, the BMW M235i Racing is an entry-level race car for newcomers and professionals, which has been fitted with an aerodynamic body kit, with a FIA certified safety cell and with some sport tuned suspension system, amongst others. The racing car in question has also received a mechanical limited slip rear differential. Power is being provided by a 3.0 liter six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine, which is developing a total output of 333 HP (245 kW) and it has a peak torque of 450 Nm (331 lb-ft).
