When BMW released the M2 in 2015 it quickly earned its place among the M/// greats, with many proclaiming it was actually a better driver’s car than the M4.
But times move on and the 2-Series coupe got a facelift, so BMW decided to take the opportunity to give the M2 a steroid injection too...
The first change you notice is the nose, which has a lot more angles – especially the grille which now almost blends into one piece. The head and tail lights get new graphics, there are a new set of alloy wheels, and inside you get the M4-style bucket seats.
But the biggest changes come under the skin. The M2 Competition now has the M3/M4’s S55 engine, down-tuned slightly to 404bhp. This means there are an extra 40bhp and 50Nm of torque, which enables the 0-62mph time to drop to 4.4 seconds for the manual and 4.2 seconds for the optional seven-speed dual-clutch box.
With all these changes it looks like BMW has just made the best even better and the M2 Competition could be your next week - get your tickets now and you could be the next Midweek Car winner!
