Three exciting new cars added
BMW M2 ’18 Competition
A badass FR that hides the power of a demon in its compact body.
The BMW 2 Series Coupe is popular as a high-performance rear-wheel-drive compact. The BMW M2 Competition is an extreme machine that fills the same engine compartment as the 3L “S55” twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder engine found in the M3 and M4. What you will notice first is the captivating bodywork. With its domed fenders, the exterior is the epitome of speed. Although it’s only 4475mm long, it’s about the same size as the E36 M3. Whether in town or on twisty roads, the car offers an incredible sense of control, as if the driver’s nerves reach the fur thest corners of the body. The S55 engine offers a maximum power of 404 BHP with a maximum torque of 56.1 kgfm. Even in the face of BMW’s long history of peak performance inline 6-cylinder engines, this model has exceptional high rev performance and as the boost increases, its explosive power emerges.
Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth ’87
A Cosworth-tuned masterpiece that dominated touring car racing
The Sierra was a relatively standard family car with an aerodynamic hatchback body, produced by Ford of Europe starting in 1982. But in 1985, car enthusiasts’ impression of the Sierra took a big turn. Indeed, the famous Cosworth has added the Sierra RS Cosworth to the selection, affectionately known as “Cossie” among enthusiasts. The Sierra RS Cosworth was powered by a 2-litre inline-4 tuned to 203 BHP with DOHC and a turbocharger. The chassis was reinforced and the exterior was improved with fender extensions and a large rear spoiler. A year later, its output was further increased to 223 BHP, and a Sierra RS 500 Cosworth limited to 500 units was added to the range, with a beefed up engine for racing use and better aerodynamic details. And of course, all of these upgrades were developed for touring car racing. From 1988 to 1990, the Sierra won several series championship titles in the international Group A category in countries such as Germany, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and New Zealand.
Nissan Silvia K’s Aero (S14) ’96
The top of the range of the S14 adds a rear spoiler and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The S14 Silvia debuted in October 1993 as the successor to the successful S13 model, and with a new, larger body, Nissan hoped to continue its previous success. The S14 is 1730mm wide compared to the S13’s 1690 and the track width has also been increased to match. The new model is also 30mm longer at 4500mm and 5mm taller at 1295mm for an overall taller body. The smoother lines of the body design make the width of the car stand out the most. The Grade K model also featured 16-inch wheels as standard. The engine is a retuned version of the SR20 series of the S13. The highest quality K model features an intercooled turbocharger and produces 14 BHP more than the previous generation at 216 BHP/28 kgfm with the naturally aspirated Q’s and J’s producing 157 BHP/19.2 kgfm . The basic suspension structure was also carried over from the S13 using front struts with a multi-link system in the rear. The car was also available with the “Super HICAS” electronic rear-wheel steering system. In 1996, Nissan launched a facelift model with a complete redesign. The exterior’s soft image has been tightened up with scowling headlights and a large real spoiler for a cleaner, more striking appearance.
Introducing Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta
Total length: 4,088m, drop: 38m, number of turns: 12, longest straight: 1,275m
The Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is a historic American road course built in 1970 and located just north of Braselton, Georgia. Renowned for hosting touring car and prototype car races, it also hosts the 10-hour “Petit Le Mans” endurance race. A technical course featuring a series of flowing, high-speed corners that require full-throttle acceleration and hard braking, its narrow track and dramatic elevation changes result in multiple blind corners where drivers must carefully consider their points of overtaking.
