Fux, one of Rolls-Royce’s biggest customers, is no strange of special colors. He even had some of them named after him. In 2017, Fux allegedly wanted a color for his M2 that was not part of the standard palette. Even though BMW did not offer an Individual program for the F87 M2, his wishes were granted.
The color chosen: Austin Yellow which made its debut just a few years earlier on the F82 M4. But that wasn’t all. His M2 was further customized inside with a combination of black leather and Austin Yellow accents. Even the steering wheel and the top mirror was adorned with the flashy yellow color.
Our sources say that Fux spared no expense, despite paying top dollar and beyond market prices for some of these upgrades. The car was finally built, even though it had to go through a special production process in Leipzig, Germany.
At the end, the BMW M2 in Austin Yellow carried an MSRP of $114,000, more than double its original price. The car also features a series of M Performance Parts made of carbon fiber: Carbon Fiber Side Skirt Winglets, Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler, Carbon Fiber Front Attachment with Aero Kit, M Performance Exhaust and Carbon Fiber Exhaust Tips.
