Less rules. More performance. Physically as well as virtually: Watch the trailer of the virtual BMW M235i in the upcoming PlayStation 4 videogame DriveClub.
Capable of 0 to 62mph in just 4.8 seconds, we let DTM driver Andy Priaulx loose on the track in the new BMW 2 Series Coupé.
We like the tagline at the end of the video – “Black Sheep. In Red.”

The first official 2 Series video teaser posted nearly two weeks ago previewed not only the M235i, but also a cinematic short-film featuring the car.
The complete short-film has now been posted. It’s essentially a gratuitous car chase scene, but what better way is there to get more looks at the M235i in action? Click inside for a look (may take a few seconds for video to appear).
Here is the official BMW M235i / 2 Series launch film, promo spot with BMW DTM driver Andy Priaulx, and the first action videos of the M235i (including a launch control demo).
We have added the first videos of the BMW M235i 2 Series Coupe to our Official Thread.

The M235i mule is seen in Estoril Blue II and shares its wheels, M Sport brakes, and double black exhaust pipes with the M135i hatchback. A trunk spoiler lip can also be seen clearly.
M235i and 228i coupe production begins in November. There will be no 235i model in the US or elsewhere, as the M235i will take its place in the lineup. The M235i will feature the same powerplant and mechanicals as the highly touted M135i hatchback [reviews].
