The New 2019 BMW M2 Competition Is Like A Race Car You Can Keep In Your Garage
The new 2019 BMW M2 Competition packs so much power under its stylish hood that owning one would be like being able to have your own personal race car parked in your driveay.
Unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, the BMW M2 Competition takes everything good about the already popular M2 coupe and turns it up to 11.
The centerpiece of the new BMW M2 Competition is its new engine, based on the power unit from the BMW M3 and BMW M4. The double-charged six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology delivers 410 HP between 5,250 and 7,000 rpm. The engine’s peak torque of 405 lb-ft is on tap between 2,350 and 5,200 rpm.
The new BMW M2 Competition completes a standard sprint, from a standstill to 100 km/h, in 4.2 seconds (with M DCT, 4.4 seconds with six-speed manual gearbox). The top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. The car can be combined with the M Driver’s Package to raise the top speed to 174 mph.
The oil supply system for the engine is taken directly from BMW motorsports, while the cooling system from the BMW M4 with Competition Package is also used with some adjustments. An enlarged BMW kidney and a new front skirt with increased air flow are exterior signs that point to the use of this improved cooling system. The kidney is finished in high-gloss Shadow Line black paint as standard. This is also the case for the side gills on the front wings, and for the redesigned quartet of tailpipes in the twin exhaust system, with two electrically adjustable valves.
