BMW M2 Competition With Better Specifications

Both figures are a tenth of a second quicker than the 2018 M2.

Where the BMW M2 Coupe always had a 370-hp N55 inline-six cylinder engine from the 2 Series, the upcoming M2 Competition reengineers the N55 engine with a detuned version of the S55-designated inline-six cylinder gets from the M3 and M4. This enables a sharper 0-62mph time of 4.2sec in combination with an optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

The BMW M2 - now on sale for two years - rivals the Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG CLA 45, as well as the Porshche Cayman. The chassis featured a host of improvements to harness most of the added power.

The Competition represents a comprehensive reworking of the BMW M2 package, boosting the power of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre engine to 404bhp.

The M2 Competition Pack lifts its new engine from the outgoing M3, and will replace the standard M2 when it goes on sale in May. There's also the usual M badging and extra trim, including M2 Competition badging along the door sills. But BMW adds that the Competition's performance on wet or slippery roads is also improved, thanks in part to an Active M Differential.

The result of all these changes is significant - with the seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission specced, the auto will hit 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. Lastly, a particulate filter reduces fine dust emissions.

China to lift foreign ownership restrictions for shipbuilding
GM also said last week its growth in China was "a result of working with our trusted joint venture partners". Tesla, however, was opposed to the idea and wanted to retain sole ownership of the facility.

At the back, there's a new dual-exhaust system, with two electrically-controlled flaps that can be used to adjust the soundtrack. So equipped, the M2 Competition will blitz the zero-to-100 km/h benchmark in just 4.2 seconds (4.4 seconds with the manual), 0.1 seconds faster than the M2. Top speed is a limited 155mph, or 174mph if you tell BMW what a talented driver you are (and give them some more money). The unit can be paired with either a six-speed manual or an M Double Clutch Transmission. "We've improved it a lot".

As standard the Competition will use 380mm front and 370mm rear discs, with an optional upgrade package comprised of 400mm/380mm discs alongside six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers. "However, the DSC can still be relied upon in critical situations", he said. The extra power is tamed by redesigned steering, brakes and suspension, while reshaped bodywork with enhanced aerodynamics is claimed to make the very most of the long list of changes.

As for the design, there's a new front skirt to optimise air flow and cooling, with black kidney grilles and side gills, with black quad-outlet exhaust tips, and dark M2 badges.

Other standard features include front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and forward-collision warnings with pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking.

The visual changes compared to the existing version are subtle, but quite a few in numbers. The M2 Competition promises to add extra bite to the most compact "M" vehicle you can buy, distancing it from increasingly capable hot hatchbacks like the SEAT Cupra R and Honda Civic Type R that snap at the M2's heels.
