German motorsport firm RS-RACINGTEAM announced their new project based on the BMW M235i. Following their successful RS package for the previous M3, the team has now focused on the new born Bimmer to turn it into a proper racing machine. They call it the Green Hell Edition, which hints at the purpose of this treatment.
The BMW M235i Green Hell Edition features a completely stripped-out interior featuring a full safety cage, racing shell-type seats with 6 point harness, carbon fiber door panels, and a fire extinguisher. With these changes not only the car now means business, it also gets rid of all the unnecessary weight. It is, after all, a race car.
The team then set about improving the car’s contact with the ground, providing Michelin semi-slick tires with BBS or ATS 18 inch wheels, and KW Clubsport coilovers. The braking system is improved too, with steel flex tubes and racing sports braking fluid, as well as Ferodo brake pads.
As for the performance, while the racing potential of the standard in-line turbocharged six-cylinder engine in the M235i was satisfying for RS-RACINGTEAM, they installed a stainless steel Supersprint exhaust system.
Visually, the BMW M235i Green Hell is easily distinguishable, and not just because of its green wrap. It also features a fixed rear wing and M racing colors. The car’s now ready to take on the green hell that is the Nurburgring track. RS guys say they can also make a street version of the M235i Green Hell, with prices starting from 57,800 Euros.
