BMW has confirmed, at the start of the 2018 DTM opener at the Hockenheimring, that the BMW M2 Competition in Germany will start at 61,900 euros. Therefore, the compact athlete remains close to the previous base price of 59,900 euros, although the technology package has been significantly upgraded and performance has noticeably gone up. The optional 7-speed dual-clutch raises the base price by 3,900 euros. For all driving dynamics friends, this means that the driving pleasure per euro ratio is even better than it was before.

The successor to the previous BMW M2 is much more than a facelift, which is why the amended name is justified: The BMW M2 Competition has an adapted version of the known inline six-cylinder S55 engine, making 405 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. That’s 40 horses and 63 more pound-feet than the outgoing car. As a result, the sprint to 62 mph comes in 4.2 seconds.

Visually, the BMW M2 Competition also offers some interesting updates, including new aprons on the front and rear, and a black kidney grille that is connected in the middle. M exterior mirrors are another feature that was withheld from the previous M2.

In the interior, the M seats with illuminated M2 logo and the M1 and M2 steering wheel buttons provide two favorite setups for even more sportscar flair, in the style of the big brothers M3 and M4.

With the BMW M Performance accessory for the BMW M2 Competition , all customers also have the option of further enhancing their M2 Competition at a later date. Carbon fiber roof and bonnet, carbon fiber tailgate and lightweight wheels, allow you to shed over 30 kg and improve the power-to-weight ratio without sacrificing comfort or everyday utility.
