The best technology offers not only excellent performance, but also outstanding easy of use. And that is exactly what the interior components in the BMW Performance rage do. They are functional and ergonomic. They make operating even the most sophisticated solutions simply itself.
Climb in, and you’ll find that the BMW Performance sport seat fits you like a second skin. Its highly distinctive shape was inspired by the monocoque construction technique used in racing cars, and it combines outstanding lateral support when cornering at speed with a high level of comfort on long journeys. Upholstered in black Alcantara, and featuring a built-in side airbag, it is also adjustable between two height settings. On the head part, the BMW Performance lettering is a proud statement of its racing origins.
The BMW Performance sport steering wheel I likewise breaks new ground. Completely upholstered in Alcantara with white cross-stitching, the curvature is flattened at the lower edge. However, its most eye-catching feature is the display built into the top of the rim. Incorporating one organic and two conventional LEDs, it gives drivers access to a variety of efficiency and motor-sport related functions. These are operated via buttons conveniently located in the thumb-rest areas. A choice of three modes is available – ECO, Sport and Race.
In all three modes, the LEDs can be used to inform drivers of the optimum shift point. In ECO mode, they can also help facilitate a more economical driving style. Sport mode includes a stopwatch, a current fuel consumption display, and a g-meter showing and recording momentary acceleration.
Race mode incorporates a lap timer with various split-time and memory functions. An optional lap trigger is available separately, which uses an infrared transmitter and receiver to measure lap times automatically and extremely accurately.
Race mode also allows a variety of acceleration times to be measured, such as the time taken to reach 100 km/h from a standing start or for the American quarter-mile sprint. Radiator temperature is shown in all three modes, as is the oil temperature in the case of petrol engines.
Alternatively, there is also the BMW Performance sport steering wheel II. This too is completely covered in Alcantara, ensuring optimum grip in any situation, and features a flattened lower section of the rim and white cross-stitched seams. It also has a leather Motor sport marking in the 12 o’clock position, in the signature BMW Performance Yellow color.
Ultimate performance is a question of getting even the smallest details absolutely right, and this philosophy is exemplified in the decorative components of the BMW Performance range. For example, the meticulously crafted interior trim strips in carbon combine a high-tech motor sport feel with an effortless sense of style.
