auto news desk, BMW has come up with a new model of its widely popular M2 sportscar. The new car claims to be even better than its predecessor and recreates the impression it created as a compact sportscar for everyday tasks. The previous generation of the BMW M2 was the most successful car sold by the M division, selling around 60,000 vehicles in seven years of sales. So this is the reason why new generation has many reasons to come with new features.
The car gets a redesigned grille and the signature kidney grille
The new BMW M2 looks like a more evolved version of its predecessor with a dash of modernity. The car gets a redesigned front bumper with black accents, adaptive LED headlamp technology and the signature BMW kidney grille as opposed to the large grille available on other models in the M division. It follows the same silhouette as its predecessor and gets vertical reflectors along with a diffuser at the rear. Customers can opt for the M Carbon roof as an option, which the company claims reduces the weight by 6 kg. The car is also available with an M Race Track package which gives the car a sportier personality and will include M Carbon roof for the driver and front passenger, M Carbon bucket seats and carbon fiber trim strips on the cabin.
The car comes with BMW’s new curved display
On the inside, the car gets a curved display that connects both the infotainment screen and the digital cluster. The car gets BMW’s iDrive technology, navigation system and head up display. The car also gets driver assistance systems like park distance control with front and rear sensors, cruise control with brake function, front collision warning with brake intervention and lane departure warning with lane return.
Coming to the engine, the car gets the M division’s signature 3.0-litre S58 twin-turbo straight six engine that makes 460 bhp along with 550 Nm of torque between 2,650 and 5,870 rpm. The engine gets 3D printed cylinder heads which help in reducing the weight. The car is mated to either an 8-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic or a 6-speed manual transmission, with the drive being sent to the rear axle.
