BMW has introduced a spectacular new racing wheelchair that is all set to be used by Paralympic athletes representing Team USE at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in September.

What's great about this particular racing wheelchair is that it was worked on by BMW in close collaboration with the people who will be using it, athletes representing the US Paralympics Track and Field team, and coaches. It is equipped with an upgraded chassis as well as ultra-lightweight carbon fiber components and a new aerodynamic design that will enable Paralympic athletes to boost their performance out on the track.

Ultimately, this aerodynamic BMW racing wheelchair will empower American Paralympic athletes to attain a new level of performance while representing their country on the biggest stage in Paralympic competition.
