The BMW M2 was released only a few days ago but we already have tuners previewing their upcoming products. Alpha-N Performance just unveiled a rendering of their future aerodynamic package featuring a widebody kit and a series of carbon fiber elements.

The tuning program will come with an updated front spoiler, a set of side skirts, a rear diffuser and a racing-ready rear wing. To complete the appearance, a set of some custom wheels in black will be added as well.

No word on the power upgrade, but in standard form, the BMW M2 uses a brand-new six-cylinder in-line engine, with M TwinPower Turbo technology and three-liter displacement, developing 272 kW/370 hp with peak torque of 465 Nm / 343 lb-ft of torque. Peak torque of 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) can be increased to as much as 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) in short bursts under overboost.

All of that tech and power allows the M2 – with the optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) in place and Launch Control activated – to sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds (4.5 s with the six-speed manual gearbox).

The top speed of the new BMW M2 is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). If the M Driver’s Package – which includes a BMW Driving Experience voucher for a track training course – is specified, this cut-off point doesn’t arrive until 270 km/h (168 mph).
