BMW has released a video with a lightly camouflaged track-only M235i Racing which will be part of the firm's race-spec offerings.

The Bavarian entry-level racing car begins at 59,500 EUR (+VAT) and is eligible for the VLN Endurance Championship and Nürburgring 24 Hours. Today we get the chance to see it in a more revealing posture following the render released about three weeks ago.

Performance numbers have not been released but we do know the M235i Racing is powered by a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine rated at 333 HP (245 kW). It comes with a wide array of goodies such as carbon fiber mirror caps, rear diffuser and new front and rear spoilers part of the BMW M Performance offerings. On top of that, it also gets a mechanical limited slip differential derived from the M235i Coupe.

For safety purposes, the racecar has been equipped with a FIA-compliant safety cell and has several driving aids like traction control, ABS and DSC.
