Watch DTM driver Andy Priaulx drive the new BMW M235i on the Thruxton Circuit

coupe was unveiled last week and here we have a new promo video showing the current range topping M235i in the hands of DTM driver Andy Priaulx.

Priaulx drives the M235i around the Thruxton Circuit in the United Kingdom and as you can see he is quite impressed saying the car has exceptional brakes and bags and bags of grip.

The M235i is powered by a 326bhp 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder with 450Nm of torque, good for a sprint from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds with the optional eight-speed automatic. With the manual it takes five seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.

A true M2 is also planned and will arrive after the convertible.
