The M240i is a relatively lightweight, rear-wheel-driven coupe that looks the business and has a cracking turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-6 up front – it's essentially everything that the world's petrolheads love about the Bavarian brand.
The M240i that was supplied to us for review had a few special bits and pieces added on, sourced from BMW's in-house M Performance parts department. And these nice touches add tastefully to the visual appeal of the car.
Join us as we take the M240i to one of our favourite mountain passes outside Cape Town to find out what this visceral car is all about.
