But for those looking for even more performance from their M2, and improved looks, BMW is offering a comprehensive M Performance program. Take for example this Alpine White M2 which was brought to the Thermal Club race track in Palm Springs.
The sporty coupe was fitted with a wide range of M Performance Parts, including black kidney grilles, black side gills, carbon fiber mirror caps, carbon fiber front apron, side skirts, rear diffuser, rear spoiler lid, side M Performance illuminated door sill, M Performance exhaust system with titanium tips and M Performance coilover suspension.
One important upgrade to the car was the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires instead of the standard PSS rubber. An M Performance brake kit with the typical blue calipers ensures that this M2 can easily be stopped at any speeds.
To properly illustrate the car in its best light, we’ve put together a comprehensive photoshoot.
