With 48 more horsepower than its predecessor, the new M2 can be specified with a six-speed manual or an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission and can get from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds with the Steptronic option and can hit 177 mph with the optional M Driver's Package. It also comes with M Drive Professional with Drift Analyzer and 10-position M Traction Control.
Additional performance-focused features include an optional carbon fiber roof, rear diffuser, track-spec cooling and oil supply systems, an M-specific exhaust system, a standard Active M Differential, M-specific bracing and chassis components, standard M Servotronic steering and Adaptive M Suspension, an integrated braking system with two settings, and redesigned seat options. On the technology front, the new M2 comes with the latest driver assistance and safety systems and the new BMW Curved Display, which has been customized with M-specific content.
The new M2 launches globally in April 2023.
