The German manufacturer BMW officially introduced its new “inflated” coupe M2 Competition. The compact sports car has received a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine from the larger M3 and M4, which generates 410 hp.
The engine’s torque is 550 Nm, and the unit works in combination with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DCT with two clutches. Depending on this, the compartment accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h for 4.2 or 4.0 seconds. The maximum speed is 250 km/h, but with the optional M Driver package available, the limiter can be moved to 280 km/h.
The M2 Competition differs from the standard BMW M2 and some stylistic solutions. The car has undergone slight changes in design, as well as an exhaust system with 4 black chrome pipes and completely new 19-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
In the salon, the changes are much less, but they are still there. New sports seats, a red engine start button, a sports steering wheel, special seat belts and original alcantar items are fitted.
In addition, the BMW M2 Competition has received a new central radiator, two side radiators and a new cooling system. All this is necessary because of the placement of a different motor under the hood. The car also has an improved electromechanical steering system and a revised M-differential. The suspension has also been redesigned with aluminum components.
The braking system has also been improved, with the car having larger disks – 400mm front and 380mm rear.
