BMW M2 Competition With 410 BHP Revealed

BMW M2 Competition revealed, gets S55 M3/M4 twin-turbo engine 2019 BMW M2 Competition arrives with 405 horsepower

Both figures are a tenth of a second quicker than the 2018 M2.

Where the BMW M2 Coupe always had a 370-hp N55 inline-six cylinder engine from the 2 Series, the upcoming M2 Competition reengineers the N55 engine with a detuned version of the S55-designated inline-six cylinder gets from the M3 and M4.

The 3.0-litre engine is closely related to that used by the M3 and M4, using twin turbocharging to deliver 404bhp through a broad sweep at the top of the rev counter, with peak power from 5,250 to 7,000rpm.

With the automatic trans, the M2 Competition will sprint from 0-100km/h in a claimed 4.2 seconds; 0.1 seconds faster than the standard M2.

The resulting beast - the BMW M2 Competition - is supposedly a bit quicker to 60 miles per hour, with BMW quoting a four-second-flat time for the DCT-equipped auto and 4.2 seconds for the six-speed manual (a 0.2-second improvement for both). This helps the M2 Competition achieve 0-62mph in just 4.2 seconds, with a top speed of 155mph.

This quad-exhaust system features electronically-controlled flaps that can be open, or closed, from the cockpit to alter the volume of the engine, the website reports. These come in the form of the M Sport system, which have larger pads (400mm at the front and 380mm at the rear) coupled with a six-piston caliper for the front and two fewer pistons for the rear. Special lightweight 19-inch forged wheels come standard on the auto.

BMW's M division have also improved the driving dynamics by adding a carbon fibre reinforced plastic strut across the engine compartment - the same as in the M3/M4. Enlarged kidney grille openings with high-gloss black paint are part of an enhanced front end design for optimal cooling function, which complement the gloss black side vents.

The interior arrangement of the M2 Competition is slightly different. There's also the usual M badging and extra trim, including M2 Competition badging along the door sills. The M2 Competition receives upgraded units with M Sport six piston calipers up front and four pots out back. The M2 Competition also adds parking sensors, and more optional active safety features such as pre-collision warning and braking, lane-departure warning, and navigation.

A new BMW M2 has been a subject among fans of the German automaker and now they don't have to wait any longer.

Also available is an M Driver's Package, which bumps the top speed of the coupe to 174 miles per hour, and includes a voucher for the BMW Driving Experience, a track training course located at one of two BMW Performance Centers; either on the East Coast (located in Spartanburg, SC), or West Coast (located in Thermal, CA).
