Well, originally the M235i race predated the M2 so the M235i was the top trim of the 2 series.

My confusion now is how much the M240i race and thre street M240i share in common. Do they use the same BMW 'sport suspension'? Because my 135i sport suspension is very meh at the track. I'd be surprised. Is it a 240i with all the M performance upgrades? Is it a 2 series in name only?

There is almost no info on this. If I remember right though the 235i race was $60k meaning to me it must be pretty close to the production model. Also interesting the M235i/40i engine has more connection to Motorsport than the M2 Comp which is not used in Motorsport.

Anyone have details? Can any pleb order one of these up as a toy?
