BMW M2 Competition Production Could Commence Next Year
The standard edition will be getting a name change and a power upgrade.
The BMW M2 will reportedly be replaced by the BMW M2 Competition in June 2018. Saying goodbye to the single-turbo three-liter N55 six-cylinder of the current M2 in favor of the twin-turbo S55 mill from the M3 and M4, the car would be quite different from the current M2 due to the addition of a carbon fiber front splitter, side skirt fins, a trunk lid lip spoiler, revised rear diffuser and carbon fiber tailpipes.
While the current style only has black leather upholstery, the new CS will have an enhanced look; leather with contrasting stitching in “Polar Blue” or “Kyalami Orange” and the option of normal or perforated leather. Moreover, the German automaker will offer optional M sport seats and brakes. New colors will be offered, including the “Silver Hockenheim” and a striking “Sunset Orange” in addition to the current color options of “Alpine White”, “Black Sapphire,” “Mineral Grey” and “Long Beach.”
Check out the images above created by artist Monholo Oumar to showcase the potential design of the M2 Competition featured in “Sunset Orange.” The production of the new M2 Competition is expected to start around early July, with the world premiere likely to be debuted two to three months ahead of the start of production.
