For power, the M2 Competition gets a reworked version of the 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. It is the same engine that powers the M3 and M4. But on the M2 the power gets sliced by a few counts to 410hp and 550 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are performed by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox which delivers power to the rear wheels. The sports coupe promises top speed of 250 kph and 0-100kph acceleration in just 4.2 seconds.
If custom handling and drive options were not enough, the M2 Competition also gets electronically-controlled flaps for the exhaust system. This means that the coupe will also sound the way you would like it too. In addition to making all the right noise, three drive modes- Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ promise an exhilarating drive and handling experience.
