In a year where several new BMW’s a set to debut, from the next-generation G-chassis 4-series and the now-revealed i4 Concept, to the forth-coming iX3 and X3 Hybrid, and the much-anticipated X5M & X6M, ensuring the smallest of BMW received it’s proper moment in the spotlight was important. To that end, we reached out to Aurora Straus, one of BMW’s professional race car drivers, and growing star in her own right. In addition to campaigning a BMW M4 GT4 in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Cup Challenge, she’s also a full-time Harvard University Honors student (this after differing to pursue her racing career), a musician, and the founder of the non-profit endeavor Girls With Drive.

When presented with the opportunity to experience the all-new 2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe for herself, in the week leading up to our Premier Night, Aurora jumped at the opportunity. And per her words, the pint-sized BMW impressed, with confidence-inspiring driving dynamics, impressive power (301hp, 332lb/ft of torque), and a bevy of standard safety & technology features. Our February 26th, 2020 Premier Night was a hit, with more than 70 people attending, a casual mic’d up conversation with Aurora, and three BMW of Manhattan clients winning our $250 AMEX Gift Card raffle. Additional highlights included a 1976 Inca Orange 2002 and a 1988 Henna Red E30 M3 with an S52 engine swap on display. Both vintage BMW Classics belong to close friends of BMW of Manhattan.

We look forward to seeing you at our next BMW of Manhattan event. In the mean time, enjoy the photos below.
