What it's Got:

BMW M2, in comparison with other 2-series coupe models, presents a wide range of significant exterior alteration regarding design. These include a massive front bumper that makes use of pronounced winglets in transporting air to large engine cooling ducts. Additionally, its fenders are widened with appreciatively 55mm at the front and 80mm at the rear. Another significant feature is its stills that are wider. They claim that with the prominent exterior alterations come the significant decreases of aerodynamic drag by appreciatively up to five percent. Also, the changes seem to contribute to a 35 percent reduction in lift over the standard 2-series coupe.

The BMW M2 is evidently the smallest model, compared with other BMW division models. It encompasses the length of 4468mm, the width of 1854mm, and the height of 1410mm. Its wheelbase is also shorter.

At the core of the new BMW M2 model lays an N55 direct injection petrol engine. The N55 is based on a singular turbocharger that encompasses a double scroll process that is supposed to boost induction. Its engine follows the same pistons, and the result is utterly satisfying, providing a peak power of 272kW at 6500 rpm.

The M2 is equipped with a standard six-speed manual gearbox that incorporates a particular throttle blip action. Buyers can opt for an additional seven-speed dual clutch that provides the driver with choosing between manual and automatic modes including comfort, sport and sport+. The standard manual gearbox is claimed to reach 100km/h in appreciatively 5 seconds. Its top speed is established at 250km/h, with the alternative of opting for an additional driver’s package that encompasses improvements that contribute to reaching the peak of 270km/h.

Another standard option M2 is equipped with is an electronic function that offers the driver an entirely variable locking effect.

Description for Holding Page:

BMW presents high-quality, great engines, so your ride with the new BMW M2 is a notable example of this particular feature. The design of the car is significantly improved, due to the addition of great finishing characteristics and good storage space. Visually, the result meets every BMW enthusiast’s expectations. The interior design also incorporates superior materials that grant the model a qualitative outlook. You may opt for a panoramic glass roof if that sounds appealing to your taste. Still, if you live in the proximity of Australia’s sunniest areas, you might consider the shade cover insufficient.

Drivers will also notice a range of unappealing features including the disturbing reminder to buckle your seatbelt the second after sitting. Still, the main discomfort is the tyre noise that is mostly unappealing to every driver for a change.
