With the new BMW M2 Competition, BMW M GmbH is setting fresh benchmarks in the compact high-performance sports car segment and adding marked refinement to the character of the BMW M2 Coupé.
New engine with 410 HP
The centrepiece of the new BMW M2 Competition is its new engine, based on the power unit from the BMW M3 and BMW M4. The double-charged six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers 410 HP between 5,250 and 7,000 rpm. The engine’s peak torque of 550 Nm is on tap between 2,350 and 5,200 rpm. The power unit boasts an insatiable appetite for revs for a turbocharged engine and offers exceptionally linear power delivery across a broad rev range. A dual exhaust system with electronic flap control provides the distinctive M sound, while the M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers outstanding efficiency. In relevant EU countries, the BMW M2 Competition also boasts an Otto particulate filter (OPF) to further reduce fine dust pollution.
The new BMW M2 Competition completes a standard sprint, from a standstill to 100 km/h, in 4.2 seconds (with M DCT, 4.4 seconds with six-speed manual gearbox). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. The car can be combined with the M Driver’s Package to raise the top speed to 280 km/h – 10 km/h more than with the BMW M2 Coupé. The consumption figures are also noteworthy: with six-speed manual gearbox, the combined fuel consumption is 10,0 – 9,9 l/100 km, the combined CO2 emissions are 228 – 225 g/km. With the optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT), these numbers decrease to only 9,2 l/100 km 210 – 209 CO2 emissions g/km combined.
