Three new exciting cars are added
BMW M2 Competition ’18
A hard-boiled FR that hides the power of a demon in its compact body.
The BMW 2 Series Coupé is popular as a high-performance rear-wheel drive compact. The BMW M2 Competition is an extreme machine that fills the same engine bay with the 3L twin-turbo inline-6 ’S55′ engine from the M3 and M4. The first thing you’ll notice is the captivating bodywork. With its bulging over fenders, the exterior is the embodiment of speed. Although it is only 4475mm long, it is roughly the same size as the E36 M3. Whether in the city or out on the winding back roads, the car offers an incredible sense of control, as if the drivers own nerves reached out to the outer corners of their bodies. The S55 engine offers a maximum power of 404 BHP with 56.1 kgfm of maximum torque. Even against BMW’s long history of top-performance inline-6 engines, this model has exceptional high-revving performance, and as the boost builds, its explosive power emerges.
Ford Sierra RS 500 Cosworth ’87
A Cosworth-tuned masterpiece that dominated auto racing
The Sierra was a relatively standard family car with an aerodynamic hatchback body, produced by Ford Europe from 1982. But in 1985, the impression of car enthusiasts regarding the Sierra took a major turn. This was because the famous Cosworth added the Sierra RS Cosworth to the range, affectionately known as “Cossie” among enthusiasts. The Sierra RS Cosworth was powered by a 2 liter inline 4 tuned to 203 BHP with DOHC and a turbocharger. The chassis was reinforced, and the exterior was upgraded with fender extensions and a large rear spoiler. A year later, it was further increased in power to 223 BHP, and a 500-unit limited Sierra RS 500 Cosworth was added to the line-up, with an engine strengthened for racing use, and better aerodynamic details. And of course all these improvements were developed for touring car racing. From 1988 to 1990, Sierra won several series championship titles in the international Group A category in countries such as Germany, Great Britain, Australia, Japan and New Zealand.
Nissan Silvia Ks Aero (S14) ’96
The top grade S14 adds a rear spoiler and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The S14 Silvia debuted in October 1993 as the successor to the hugely 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 larger body. However, the softer lines of the body design make the width of the car stand out the most. The K class model also had 16-inch wheels as standard. The engine is a retuned version of the S13’s SR20 series. The top-spec K model has an intercooled turbocharger and produces 14 HP more than the previous generation at 216 HP/28 kgfm with the naturally aspirated Q and J models producing 157 HP/19.2 kgfm. The basic suspension structure has also been carried over from the S13, using front springs with a multilink system at the rear. The car was also available with the ‘Super HICAS’ electronic rear wheel steering system. In 1996, Nissan released a facelift model with extensive redesign. The exterior’s soft image was tightened up with scowling headlights and a large real spoiler for a sharper and more striking appearance.
Introducing the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta Race Circuit
Total length: 4,088 m, elevation change: 38 m, number of corners: 12, longest straight: 1,275 m
Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is a historic American road course built in 1970 and located just north of Braselton, Georgia. Known for hosting touring car and prototype car races, it is also the venue for the 10-hour “Petit Le Mans” endurance race. A technical course with a series of flowing high-speed corners that require full throttle acceleration and hard braking, it’s tight track and dramatic elevation changes result in several blind corners where drivers must carefully assess their overtaking points.
