With a history of creating limited production, performance focused, but affordable alternatives to their high end performance model, the M3, BMW inadvertently created its own niche of future classics during the 80's and 90's in models such as the E30 318is and E36 318is. In 2006 BMW did the same again with the introduction of the 320si, a true hand-built motorsport homologation special edition built to satisfy FIA requirements for a manufacturer to race within the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and British Touring Car Championships (BTCC).
With just 2600 examples built worldwide, the UK set to receive only 500 examples (finished in either White, Sapphire Blank, Carbon Black Metallic, Japanrot, Titan Silver or Le Mans Blue) the 320si was far more than your average 320i saloon as its heart, the 2 litre engine 16 valve engine, was built exclusively at BMW Plant Hams Hall in the UK alongside the BMW-Sauber Formula One team programme engine production. It included a new crankshaft with stroke decreased by 2 mm, cylinder diameter was increased up to 85 mm, strengthened pistons a raised compression ratio (11:1),cast Iron sleeves were replaced with aluminium sleeves. In addition, a new cylinder head, cast at the Formula 1 foundry at BMW’s Landshut Plant, was used with larger valves and reprofiled camshafts and without the standard 'Valvetronic' the engine was punching an additional 23bhp over standard, with 173bhp / 200Nm available in the road version and 275 bhp for those cars in the race series. With the engine mounted lower down and further back in the engine compartment, as well as featuring an utterly gorgeous BMW Motorsport Carbon-fibre cam cover, the cars centre of gravity was much lower, helping to improve road holding and there's no wonder the 320 si dominated the 2006/07 WTCC.
