The wait is almost over. The much-anticipated BMW M2 Competition is heading for our shores in September 2018, and we can’t wait!
The Formidable M’s
Ask any motor enthusiast, adding one single letter to the name of a model can change it all. Whether its T for turbo or D for diesel, its game-changing. The letter M gets us super-excited, and we have BMW to thank for that. They have blessed us with some marvellous M’s in the past, from the M2 Coupé to the M4, and they just keep getting better. This time around it’s the BMW M2 Competition. And boy, have they set the bar high!
Attention to detail
BMW are the masters when it comes to luxurious fine trimmings. The interior includes special touches like the illuminated M2 logo on the backrests and the BMW M stripes on the seatbelts. In true ‘Need for Speed’ style, the model comes standard with a red push button for your ignition, with other details including the clever M1 and M2 buttons that store personal performance settings, making the M2 Competition race-ready for when you are.
Built to thrill
All the M series cars from BMW gets the adrenalin pumping without fail. The M2 Competition does that with 302kW of sheer driving pleasure. The same beast of a 6-cylinder, biturbo, 3.0l engine that puts fire in the M3 and M4’s pipes are used in the M2 Competition. Kicking out 302Kw and 550Nm torque. The duel-clutch automatic model will have you flying from zero to 100km/p in 4 seconds flat and the 6-speed manual doing the same at 4.2 seconds. Your top speed in the M2 Competition is limited at 250km/p. As an additional, the M Drivers Package can equip you with a top speed of 280km/p.
Its go time
The M2 Competition will hit our shores towards the 3rd quarter of the year; you can, however, pre-order your car now already. Only a limited number of units will be released to the South African market.
