2015 BMW 2-Series 228i Coupe with Track Handling Package
BMW is going to offer a special Track Handling Package for the 2015 2-Series 228i Coupe in the US. Inspired by the original formula of BMW "S-package" vehicles manufactured in the course of the past three decades, the new Track Handling Package embraces the desires of the most enthusiastic BMW drivers.
The Track Handling Package includes /// M Adaptive Suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on unique 18" light-alloy wheels , Variable Sport Steering, and M Sport Brakes. The package will be available from July 2014 for both 6-speed manual and 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission-equipped BMW 228i Coupe models. The Track Handling Package may be added to any 228i Coupe during the vehicle ordering process.
BMW 2-Series 228i is powered by a 2.0 liter TwinPower turbo gasoline engine with 245HP (180 kW) at 5,000RPM and 350Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque at just 1,250RPM. 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
Pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
There is no doubt that the 2-Series 228i equipped with Track Handling Package will be extremely fun to drive and slide. What is more, it will set ultra-fast lap times and will compete with very tough track cars like Porsche Cayman and Lotus Elise. Still, the 228i will be a good everyday car with low fuel consumption and nice equipment.
