With the new BMW M2 Competition (combined fuel consumption with sixspeed
manual gearbox: 10,0 – 9,9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 228 –
225 g/km*; combined with optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT):
9,2 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 210 – 209 g/km)*, 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
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 sixcylinder
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
The cleverly designed oil supply system for the engine is taken directly from
motorsport, while the cooling system from the BMW M4 with Competition
Package is also used with some adjustments. The BMW M2 Competition
includes race-ready variants of the oil supply and cooling systems that have
been tested by many years’ experience in motor racing. An enlarged BMWkidney and a new front skirt with increased air flow are exterior signs that point
to the use of this improved cooling system. The kidney is finished in highgloss
Shadow Line black paint as standard. This is also the case for the side
gills on the front wings, and for the redesigned quartet of tailpipes in the twin
exhaust system, with two electrically adjustable valves. The dark M
Competition Badge graces the rear end of the car. The design of the new
double-arm wing mirrors improves the aerodynamics and they are typically
characteristic of the new BMW M2 Competition.
BMW M engineers have also adjusted the driving dynamics of the BMW M2
Competition to take the increased performance into account. The striking
CFRP high-precision strut from the BMW M3/M4 is immediately noticeable in
the engine compartment. This improves front section rigidity and increases
steering precision. The characteristic curves for the electromechanical power
steering, the Active M Differential and the Dynamic Steering Control (DSC)
system have also been adjusted.
Selector switches to adjust settings.
The BMW M2 is the first model to be equipped with selector switches on the
centre console that allow instant control of the characteristics and settings for
the engine, steering and Drivelogic functions, if M DCT is available. The
various configurations can be combined with one another in whichever way
the driver prefers and can be stored for easy access using the M1 and M2
buttons on the steering wheel. The standard range of equipment now
includes the red start/stop button, adaptive LED headlights and front Park
Distance Control (PDC).
Fascinating new options.
The new, optional M Sport seat is a real highlight in terms of function and
form. The bucket-style shape borrows heavily from motorsport and provides
drivers with optimum support, while the headrests are integrated into the seat
back rest. The backrest also features an illuminated M2 logo at shoulder
height. The black leather upholstery boasts design perforations in the seat
and backrest, available in blue or orange. The standard sports seats are also
available with black leather upholstery, featuring contrast stitching in blue or
The many years of motorsport experience at BMW M GmbH are reflected in
the availability of the new M sport brakes, which provide maximum brake
performance thanks to larger brake discs (front axle: 400 mm diameter, rear
axle: 380 mm diameter) and brake calipers painted grey (front axle: 6-piston
fixed caliper, rear axle: 4-piston fixed caliper). The optional 19-inch forged alloy
wheels (front axle: 9J x 19, rear axle: 10J x 19) are also available with the new Y-spoke design. A new metallic paint colour is also now exclusively available
for the BMW M2 Competition: Hockenheim Silver.
