The much lauded BMW M2 sports coupe is getting an upgrade with the hopes of setting an even higher benchmark in the compact high-performance sports car segment. The new BMW M2 Competition comes with an M TwinPower turbocharged inline 6 cylinder engine that produces 405 hp between 5,250 and 7,000 rpm, and 406 lb-ft of torque between 2,350 and 5,200 rpm. This will launch the M2 Competition from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.2 seconds the optional M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, and 4.4 seconds with the standard 6 sped manual gearbox. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) but can be increased to 280 km/h (174 mph) with the optional competition-based M Driver’s Package.

The M2 Competition also receives revised and suspension tuning, steering, exhaust and upgraded braking system. The exterior design has been enhanced for aerodynamic efficiency. Visual differences that set the Competition model apart from the standard M2 includes a new front spoiler design and kidney grille finished in high-gloss Shadow Line black, which also feature on the side gills on the front wings, and redesigned tailpipes in the twin exhaust system. The rear of the car has a dark M Competition badge and the race-inspired design of the new double-arm door mirrors improve the aerodynamics. The overall result is a sharper handling M2 than the original.

The M2 Competition also makes use of the race-tested cooling system from the BMW M4 with the Competition Package, consisting of one central radiator, two side radiators and an additional engine oil cooler. Cars making use of the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) also feature a transmission oil cooler. This system ensures that ideal operating temperatures are maintained on short city journeys during everyday use, as well as out on the racetrack.

A red start-stop button underlines the motorsport heritage of the car and the M1 and M2 buttons on the steering wheel also provide direct access to the range of driving modes. Drivers can save their own personal configurations chosen from the settings for stability control, engine characteristics and steering – control over the character of the M2 Competition is at their fingertips. The M1 and M2 steering wheel buttons are pre-programmed with a Comfort and a Sport program as standard and drivers can return to these settings at any time.
