The newly developed M Performance bonnet made of carbon fiber with partially visible varnished carbon fiber is not only a real eyecatcher; this is also the first time the BMW M2 Competition boasts a powerdome.
This engine hood reduces the load on the front axle by approximately nine kilograms, too. Truly stunning looks are achieved in combination with the M Performance vehicle roof in carbon fiber, which is also made of visible varnished carbon fiber (approx. 5 kg weight saving) and the M Performance tailgate in carbon fiber (approx. 6 kg weight saving, both available from 11/2018).
In addition to featuring partially visible varnished carbon fiber on the outside, the inside of the tailgate is completely made of visible carbon fiber. The M Performance front side panel in carbon fiber at the front, left/right with integrated air outlets made of visible carbon fiber (available from 11/2018) reduces weight even more.
The M Performance Parts are available: front splitter in carbon fiber, kidney grille in carbon fiber, air breather side bars in carbon fiber (right/left), exterior mirror caps in carbon fiber, door sill finisher in carbon fiber, side skirt extensions in carbon fiber, rear diffusor in carbon fiber, rear spoiler in carbon fiber.
M Performance Motorsport decal is the ideal supplement for the carbon fiber parts and is available in the distinctive M colors for the front, rear, left and right.
Inside, you’re getting the M Performance Steering Wheel, M Performance pedal covers in stainless steel, while the gear selector switch, double-clutch transmission and hand brake handle are covered in the carbon fiber.
