2019 BMW M2 Competition
The BMW M2 Competition will indeed get the same bi-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine from its bigger brother, the M4. In this new specification, the mill has been configured to develop 410 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. For the sake of comparison, a regular M2 pushes out 365 hp and 343 lb-ft, so the new Competition version packs an extra 45 hp and 62 lb-ft.
The alleged 0-62 mph sprint time is said to take 4.2 seconds with the dual-clutch automatic gearbox, which would be a tenth of a second quicker than the DCT-equipped standard M2.
The BMW M2 Competition Coupé functions like pure adrenalin with every detail. Enlarged air inlets and the full length kidney grill with M2 badge dominate the front. From the impressive bonnet, the characteristic coupé silhouette extends through to the muscularly sculpted rear. Distinctive 19” M light alloy wheels provide dynamic tension, while M gills and M exterior mirrors in Black high-gloss underline the motor racing character. In the rear view, the M diffuser and the angle exhaust tailpipes signal sporting ambitions in top form.
With its tremendous performance potential and outstanding agility, it leaves the competition far behind. The two weight-optimised turbochargers ensure that the high performance power unit exhibits an extremely direct response and unbridled high-revving ability – perfect for fast sprints and sporty cornering. The sound of the M sport exhaust system can be adapted to the specific driving mode at the touch of a button – powerful and setting the tone at every moment. Developed and tested on the racing circuit, the cooling system ensures the optimum operating temperature while the M specific suspension guarantees precise handling. A vehicle for everyone who wants to dictate the race from the front of the pack.
The M specific instrument display appears with red dials, centrally positioned oil gauge and M2 Competition lettering. The M leather steering wheel is also optimised for peak performance. Start-up is ignited by a red start/stop button and individual driving profiles can be configured via the M1/M2 buttons while the shift paddles interacting with the M double-clutch transmission supplied as standard allow gear changes in a matter of seconds. M Sport seats round off the overall set-up. Designed in black Dakota leather with illuminated M2 logo, they not only offer a powerful look but also perfect support.
