2010 BMW Baby Racer II Motorsport – Click above for high-res image

It's never too early to learn the fundamentals of car control, kids, and BMW's new entry-level single-seat roadster is just the ticket. Constructed of light-weight composites and equipped with real rubber tires, a speedometer and a tach in the cockpit, the BMW Baby Racer II Motorsport ditches traditional pedal power in favor of the more experimental leg-scramble technique. Interestingly enough, the company choose to forego brakes all together.

Is this the face of things to come from BMW? Probably not, but if you know a fledgling racer between the ages of six months and three years-old, we know the perfect birthday gift. What do we have to do to get BMW to send over a crate load of these things for cubicle races?

Entry Level. The BMW Baby Racer II Motorsport.

Munich. Hairpin bends behind the kitchen, cobblestones in front of dad's pit lane, traffic-calmed noise protection zones in the living room – with the BMW Baby Racer II Motorsport, budding drivers from one and a half to three years old will master it all with their blue-white-red roadster that is ready for anything.

Its sports steering wheel makes U-turns an easy exercise for little drivers.
The sporty-looking but soft seat absorbs vibrations from rough terrain. The
tires can even handle delicate parquet, with rubber to ensure a silent ride
and a low profile for stability on any surface. Together with the big
wheels, they look really sporty, too.

Goes like a racing car – looks like one too.
The TÜV-tested BMW Baby Racer II Motorsport is designed to look like a real racing car, with an aerodynamic front spoiler, speedometer, and rev counter. The BMW logo stands out in metallic effect at the front and back.

The Baby Racer II Motorsport in blue-white-red, and other children's vehicles, are available at selected BMW dealerships and at www.bmw-shop.com.

      Perfect for grooming future snobs.

      WTF Autoblog! This came out in January! I've been suffering with a stupid school bus that plays twinkle twinkly every five seconds when I could have had this :) j/k thanks for the heads up. Do want.

      This should help raise the fleet milage averages, and unless mom feeds the driver baked beans, zero emissions

      The Cozy Coupe has nothing on this! My son will hopefully be getting this for his first birthday!

      I'll wait for the M version.

      I wonder if the maintenance on this is 10x what it is on the Camry of kiddie cars, the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe.

        Can only be ridden by kids named 'BMW', or could I change the decal to 'Billy Power' or 'Jamie Power'?

      It's April 5th, not April 1st.

      It's a Chinese knock-off! Where's the kidney grille?

      No Brakes? if they are anything like my son the toes of their racing shoes will take a beating. He put about 20,000 mile and 30 pairs of shoes a leg powered car like that.

      Now he's twenty and given up "MY WANT MY WANT" for "Wow dad, that 3 coupe (GTI, Mini, R32...) would look good in the dorm parking lot" Yes it would son, you'll need a better job.

      Sigh

        You're making me miss my childhood. And it works.

      Well I guess this way the owner won't have to figure out if it's FWD or RWD...

      Sweet! It's mid-engined!
