BMW has unveiled the new M2 Coupe with a high-performance six-cylinder in-line engine, rear-wheel-drive agility, lightweight aluminium M Sport suspension and extrovert styling. The new 3.0-litre engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology develops 370 hp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 465 Nm, which can be increased to 500 Nm in short bursts under overboost. With the optional 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission and Launch Control, the M2 Coupe can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds, on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The new BMW M2 Coupe gets the typical M styling through a low front apron with large air intakes, muscular flanks with characteristic M gills, 19-inch aluminium wheels in M double-spoke design with mixed size tyres and low, wide rear with M-specific twin-tailpipe exhaust system.
To be the sportiest of its kind, the M2 Coupe gets the lightweight aluminium front and rear axles from the BMW M3/M4 models, M Servotronic steering with two settings, M compound brakes, electronically controlled Active M Differential. And to get you in to drift mode, the M2’s Dynamic Stability Control system comes with M Dynamic Mode (MDM), which when activated allows wheel slip and therefore moderate, controlled drifts on the track.
The new BMW M2 Coupe also gets an extensive list of standard features that includes seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic and a wide selection of driver assistance systems and mobility services from BMW ConnectedDrive. The ConnectedDrive Services offers extensive vehicle connectivity, and also enables the use of innovative apps, which are integrated seamlessly into the car using BMW ConnectedDrive technology.
