BMW M2 reaches new level of greatness thanks to M4 engine swap image

Dähler Design & Technik GmbH has taken the wraps of what could be the ultimate enhancement for the newly introduced BMW M2 pocket rocket – they did an M4 engine swap.

The main novelty of course is the swap from M2’s 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder (N55) engine to the feistier 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder (S55) unit that comes bundled with each M4 acquisition. A plethora of other modifications have enabled the “new” type of M2 to deliver 540 horsepower and 538 pound-feet of torque. With such a serious power upgrade the M2 will now climb to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) in no more than four seconds, with the maximum speed standing at the magical 199 mph threshold.

Such serious credentials need to be kept in check so the aftermarket specialist used an adjustable coil-over suspension system and a high-performance braking system with eight pistons and 15.7-inch brake discs. The styling department has been enhanced using a new front spoiler and a stainless steel sports exhaust system. If you’re willing to pay extra you can also have a massive rear wing and bespoke 20- or 21-inch lightweight alloy wheels. The cabin has been largely left untouched save for an important tweak – the integration of a new multi-information display to deliver a wide array of vehicle information. There’s also the option to go all unique inside with a cabin modified to order.
