Tuningwerk BMW M235i RS unveiled with 444 bhp

Tuningwerk has taken the wraps off their new BMW M235i RS.

Looking track ready, the model has been equipped with a carbon fiber body kit that includes a front lip spoiler, a rear diffuser and a prominent rear wing. The model has also been equipped with high-performance brakes, an improved cooling system and 18-inch forged wheels with Dunlop SportMaxx RT.

The sporty styling continues in the cabin as there's Recaro seats, carbon fiber trim and a sport steering wheel. Customers can also order a roll cage and six-point seat harnesses.

Under the hood, the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine has been equipped with an aluminum oil pan and a sports exhaust system - among other things. Thanks to these modifications, it develops 444 HP (326 kW) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 118 PS (86 kW) and 150 Nm (110 lb-ft). It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission - with a sports clutch - which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and 0-120 mph in 15.4 seconds.

The model is currently available to order and pricing starts at €65,000 ($88,238 / £52,031).
