Six-cylinder in-line and rear-wheel drive – the new BMW M2 remains in the classic world of sporty BMW values. However, some details have changed in the compact power coupe.
The M2 from BMW, which was discontinued in 2021 – the final piece of many sports equipment and for the essence of the M brand – will celebrate its return from April 2023 at prices of around 73,000 euros – about 10,000 more than its predecessor. Euro more expensive. As before, it is a coupe with a decidedly fleshy appearance, a long muzzle and a short tail. The BMW M2 is primarily meant to inspire track-savvy drivers. With over 1.7 tons, however, he is not an athlete.
The length of the new version has increased by 11 centimeters to 4.58 meters compared to its predecessor. Serves as a three-liter six-cylinder drive with 338 kW / 460 hp and 550 Newton meters of torque. It distributes power to the rear axle with either a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic transmission.
According to BMW, the 1.7-tonner should accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 (manual) or 4.1 (automatic) seconds. Normally, the bolt is pushed forward at 250 km/h; However, if a driver package is ordered, the range increases to 285 km/h.
Rear axle differential and six-piston fixed caliper
With traction control, the intervention threshold for wheel slip limitation can be set in ten steps. The technology arsenal also includes rear axle differential and six-piston fixed calipers on the front brake.
The cockpit of the BMW M2 features two large displays that are combined into a curved frame. Comfort features include a navigation system and three-zone automatic air conditioning. The “Race Track” package can be ordered as an option. This includes, among other things, a carbon roof and carbon bucket seats. Trunk volume is 390 liters. The BMW M2 will be built at the Mexican BMW plant in San Luis Potosi from spring next year, as will the new BMW 2 Series Coupe.
