BMW M fans have been waiting a long time for this one. From the moment BMW began teasing that an M2, a real M2 was coming, diehards have wondering if the carmaker’s M division would actually take it to the next level.
For those that find the M2’s TwinPower turbocharged 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder and its 365-horsepower and 343 lb.-ft. of torque less than adequate will now be able to spec out their M2 with the Competition package.
Of the many goodies involved, none will have a greater impact on the drive than the bi-turbo version of the straight-6, now good for 405-horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque. Mated to the 7-speed DCT (6-speed manual offered) transmission, this pocket-rocket will hit the ton in 4.2 second.
All usual important bits will also be thrown in, including 19” M lightweight wheels, black high-gloss trim, an M sport exhaust, an M specific suspension and M sport seats.
Expect much praise for this car once it hits the road, and equal amounts of anticipation and drooling in the meantime.
