The new BMW M235i Racing video

Details on the BMW M235i Racing Car: http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=915686

Quote:
BMW Motorsport is adding a new car to its customer racing range, which is spearheaded by the BMW Z4 GT3, in the form of the BMW M235i Racing. At a price of 59,500 Euros (plus VAT), this car helps to make motorsport affordable on an entry-level basis. Customer feedback has been very positive so far. No wonder, as the new car is a true beauty.

pretty much makes me forget how much I dislike the new 2 series styling. sign me up for an M2 after my current lease is over!

automatic transmission is a bit of a buzzkill though...ack. hope the production version gives more transmission options and even if it doesn't I hope it is the DCT and not that generic 8 speed ZF.

Cool video. Too bad it contains almost no substance, and a lot of editing and sound effects. Potential is there.

The car isn't even going fast in any portion of the video. The best part is at the very end when you can hear the exhaust - which did sound nice.

Not sure how many of you are into bikes, but this reminds me of a Ducati video - aka, it's more about style and looking cool than what the bike, or in this case the car, can actually do.

I am not hating on Ducati - I have one and have owned another one.

To me though, you use things like music and panning shots to "spice up" a car that needs help looking and sounding good. The M235 racing car should not fit that definition.

If it were me making this video, I would have had 0 music, and shown the car busting its respective balls around corners and going down the straights at 155 MPH. Just my $.02

EDIT - just watched it again, and my god, this might as well be an advertising video for Puma and Castrol too. Count the times you see the logos - ///MMMMMMMMMMMMarketjng at its best

Is it just me, or i can see a Start/Stop button in a racing (probably) not street legal BMW.
Although I really love how it looks and sound.

Oh I agree - I'm not hating on the car - to me, the video is pointless.

And it's 17 degrees F here today, and I was out driving a hell of a lot faster than that, in my run of the mill 135 - just to get a McDonald's hash brown. Just sayin.

...watched the video... twice.
Gents, I may have a pristine 1M for sale in 2 yrs! (Of course provided they don't succumb to too many demands from the market place; steering feel, transmission options ect). Fingers crossed.
