BMW M2 Competition can present on April 25March 19, 2018
In addition to a more powerful three-liter engine, the M2 Competition will receive a new exterior styling.
Concern BMW can present a hardcore version of the sports coupe M2 called Competition on April 25 before the opening of the Beijing Motor Show. This is reported by the publication Bimmer Today with reference to the company’s insiders.
BMW M2 Competition will receive a three-liter in-line six-cylinder turbo-engine S55 from the elder brother – the M4 coupe. However, for the younger model, engineers de-engineered the engine with 431 hp up to 410 hp and 500 Nm of torque. Nevertheless, with it the version of Competition will still be on 40 hp and 35 Nm more powerful than the standard M2. The car will still be equipped with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission with dual-clutch with the Drivelogic function.
The additional power can improve, for at least 0.1 second, the 0-100 km / h acceleration, which in M2 is 4.5 seconds. But the maximum speed will also be limited to 250 km / h. With the optional M Driver package, it can be upgraded to 270 km / h.
Externally, the BMW M2 Competition will feature a new splitter on the front bumper, a black grille, side skirts, side mirrors in the M style, a spoiler on the boot lid and a new rear diffuser. Most of the new parts are made of carbon fiber. It is expected that they will offer new sets of alloy wheels.
Production Competition will begin in July this year. Customers will receive the first copies by the end of the summer.
The estimated cost of the BMW M2 Competition can be higher than the standard M2 by 10,000 euros
