New York Yacht Club American Magic, a Challenger for the 36th America’s Cup, announced BMW of North America as an official partner. BMW will be the exclusive premium automotive provider of the team during its campaign to reclaim the America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in international sports and the highest prize in sailing.

“Our team maintains a clear focus on design, innovation and performance, principles that lead to continuous improvement and success on the racecourse,” said Terry Hutchinson, Skipper and Executive Director of American Magic. "BMW was built on and embodies these ideas. This is why our team of 140 sailors, designers, engineers, composite fabricators and support crew could not be more proud to have BMW join our mission to win the America’s Cup.”

BMW’s America’s Cup history stretches back over two decades, and includes being part of winning efforts in 2010 and 2013. The company’s long history of innovation and reputation for performance aligns perfectly with the unrelenting drive of America’s Cup teams.

After focusing on design work, research and on-the-water development from 2017-2019, American Magic will compete in multiple America’s Cup World Series events in 2020 before participating in the Prada Cup in early 2021 in Auckland, New Zealand. The team that wins the Prada Cup will face the current Defender of the America’s Cup, Emirates Team New Zealand, in the America’s Cup match from March 6-21, 2021.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
