They skipped the M2C Racing.

"As with the predecessor models, the BMW M235i Racing and the BMW M240i Racing, several platforms around the world will be available to the new car apart from its main stomping grounds, the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring and the TC America."

Very interesting that they went from the ZF8 to the DCT and finally from N55 to S55 engine. I wonder if the endurance drivers will start seeing reliability issues with a true twin-turbo setup. Still cool to see such close alignment now between the street and race cars! As a M240i owner, it was kind of weird to see a M240i Racing with the N55 engine...
Don't they already have some experience with the M4 GT4? Unless that's not based on the S55.
