It is possible that this will be the engine of the BMW X2 M35i SUV, now mass-produced. The car known to all motorists of the world in the past overcame the road in 8 minutes. and 23 sec. Today we managed to do it in exactly 8 minutes.

  Tests on the tracks will last more than one month: experts will adjust the suspension, check the brakes, upgrade the steering, explore the possibility of installing parts from lightweight materials to reduce the overall weight of the car. Hatchbacks are going to be mass-produced since 2020 with a limited batch of 300 pieces of equipment. It is not excluded that the premiere of the car will take place at the end of this year.
