The BMW M2 has already been revealed since October but the Bavarian automaker appears to still be working full throttle at the wide array of optional goodies for the high-performance car.
The sports coupe, a true successor to the iconic E30 M3 series, has been delivered to the audience featuring a very menacing aerodynamic body kit but it appears that BMW thinks it can do even better – thanks to the more aerodynamically-optimized M Performance package. These spy shots deliver us the additions we should be expecting from the M Performance range – and we could see modified front aprons, updated side skirts, a larger boot lid as well as an upgraded diffuser. But the main source of attraction will be the improved M Performance exhaust system which feature larger exhaust tip pipes compared to the standard setup. The accessories also appear to be coming from a different batch than the ones already showcased by the brand during the SEMA event in Las Vegas. We saw then a blacked out kidney grille, side mirror caps and a rear spoiler with carbon fiber – as well as an Alcantara-clad sports steering wheel.
We’re not rooting for any type of technical modifications, so the M2 will continue to sport under the hood the same 3.0-liter M TwinPower Turbo, which boasts 365 bhp (268 kW) and 343 lb-ft (464 Nm) of torque – 69 lb-ft (499 Nm) when using overboost. With the standard six-speed manual gearbox, you’ll do 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and the extra 7-speed dual-clutch automatic will shave off 0.2 seconds.
