BMW M2 Competition images leaked, to debut at Beijing Motor Show
The idea of putting a bigger engine in a smaller car is always fun. And that is what BMW will be doing with the M2. The BMW M2 Competition package will be making its official debut at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show. It is being said that the BMW M2 Competition, in addition to sporting an aggressively styled body kit, will also come with a 410PS motor.

The BMW M2 Competition comes with an all-black kidney grille, tweaked bumper design with vents in the lower lip, M4 Coupe like black mirrors and new 19-inch black wheels. The M2 Competition will come with M4-sourced seats with illuminated M2 logo. Additionally, it will come with a red start/stop button with M1 and M2 buttons on the steering wheel.

Under the hood of the BMW M2 Competition will be M4-sourced biturbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that makes 410PS of power and generates a torque of 550Nm. These numbers are 45PS and 84Nm more than the regular-spec M2. Paired to this motor is a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The claimed 0 to 100kmph timing for the BMW M2 Competition automatic will be 4.2seconds making it a tenth of a second quicker than the standard offering. Will the BMW M2 Competition be available in manual transmission as well, is something that needs to be seen. However, if BMW decides to make one, it has to be quicker to reach 100kmph.
