FINALLY WITHOUT VEILS – About four months after the images depicting a forklift still disguised during a test session on the track, here are those of the BMW M2 final, which will be available inApril of the 2023. More powerful, more gritty, with the DNA strands of the super sports BMW accentuated by a very muscular look that distinguishes it at a glance from the normal 2 Series Coupé: with the new BMW M2, in the year of celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Motorsport division, the Bavarian house pits another piece in its long tradition of high-performance compact cars (here ten BMW Ms that made history). And it aims to surpass the sales success of the previous generation, produced in 60,000 units and now ready to hand over the baton to the new model.
MUSCLES AT WILL, BUT ONLY WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED – As often happens with super sports models, there are numerous aesthetic changes that distinguish the new one BMW M2 from the coupe from which it derives. But this time the designers of the Bavarian house have really “exaggerated”, giving a dose of extra muscle that gives the car an important presence on the road, also emphasized by the large alloy wheels of different sizes (19 inches in front, 20 inches behind) and matching , on request, with racing tires. Every single intervention on the bodywork is the result of in-depth studies to improve the entry and flow of air exactly where it is needed, or to help cool the mechanical parts subjected to greater thermal stress, as well as to improve efficiency aerodynamics. Here are some features with a strong aesthetic impact, such as the three large and squared openings on the front bumper, the “lip” spoiler in the tail, the large rear diffuser from which the two pairs of tailpipes come out or, again, the lower part of the hips very flared.
MOUNT THE M3 ENGINE – The more athletic bodywork, with sharper and more marked surfaces but also far fewer frills than all the other versions of the 2 Series Coupé (for example, the chromed frame that adorns the double kidney grille has disappeared), goes hand in hand with mechanics with a clear racing imprint. If the rear-wheel Drivethan on the new one BMW M2 it is combined as standard with the active M differential, it is a trademark that enthusiasts take for granted, the 90 HP more than the previous generation model are in the news. Under the hood, now, they paw well 460 hpreleased by a 3.0 six-cylinder bi-turbo that differs only in a handful of details from the one that equips the larger and more powerful BMW M3 and M4.
SUPER PERFORMANCE – Approaching the red area of the rev counter, set at 7200 rpm, the manufacturer promises for the new BMW M2 exceptional performance, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds for the version with the automatic gearbox M Steptronic with eight gears and just two tenths of a second more with the manual transmission six-speed, which BMW wanted to keep in order not to disappoint the expectations of old-school customers. The declared maximum speed is 250 km / h, but by requesting a special package it will be possible to move the intervention threshold of the electronic limiter to 285 km / h.
