404bhp BMW M2 Competition breaks cover

Posted April 19, 2018

While detuned, in the M2 the 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight six still produces 410hp from 5,250-7,000rpm, a worthwhile 40hp gain over the standard vehicle. So equipped, the M2 Competition will blitz the zero-to-100 km/h benchmark in just 4.2 seconds (4.4 seconds with the manual), 0.1 seconds faster than the M2. BMW says that's sufficient to do 0-62 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds when paired with the optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT), or 4.4 seconds with the standard six-speed manual.

For starters, the standard M2's highly-tuned N55 engine has been replaced by a detuned version of the M3 and M4's S55 mill. And will it really be worth the almost-certain price bump from the standard M2's $52,500 MSRP? A dual exhaust system with electronic flap control provides an M sound as the vehicle powers to 60 miles per hour in 4.0 seconds (with the automatic) and a limited top speed of 155 miles per hour (174 MPH with the optional M Driver's Package). The M2 derives its cooling system from the M4 Competition Package, with one central radiator, two side radiators, and an extra engine oil cooler.

An active differential helps performance, automatically locking when launching on slippery surfaces, and reacting accordingly to steering angle, throttle position and yaw rate.

And there is the option of having the now standard 19-inch "Y-Spoke" forged alloys in Jet Black. The lightweight, partially aluminum front and rear axles are also from the M3/M4, as is the 3.3-lb CFRP strut brace in the engine bay. The new M2 Competition stands out with tons of visual changes to its exteriors, while the tuned up engine punches out power like never before. Either colour contrasts dramatically with the car's gloss-black kidney grille and side-exit "gills" on the front wings.

The M2 Competition adopts a number of styling changes that give it a more aggressive appearance and address the new engine's need for improved cooling efficiency. First deliveries in the United Kingdom will begin in August.

The M2 Competition Pack will have configurable driver modes and, as on the M3 and M4, owners will be able to set up shortcuts to these settings via "M1" and "M2" buttons on the steering wheel.
