Proceeding from the Limited Edition BMW 320si, BMW Motorsport has developed a racing version with engine output of no less than 275 hp. This motorsport version of the BMW 320si will be raced worldwide in 2006 in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and other racing series held under the Super 2000 Regulations, which means that BMW will be continuing its long and great tradition of customer sport also in the year 2006.
Touring car racing is indeed BMW's most successful racing discipline so far, with the Company bringing home more wins and victories in this category than anywhere else: Twenty-four FIA European Championships as well as the so far only World Championship ever awarded in 1987 and the new Championship in 2005 – this is the impressive list of achievements proudly boasted by the BMW brand. And in the last two years, BMW, racing the 320i in the European Touring Car Championship, has brought home not only the Manufacturer's Title, but also – in 2004 – the Driver's Championship.
In 2005, finally, BMW won both the Driver's (Andy Priaulx) as well as the Manufacturer's Title.
Now the motorsport version of the BMW 320si seeks to continue this unique story of success.
