As the successor to the 1 Series M Coupe, the M2 now stands as the entry-level M car in BMW's lineup. That being said, the M2 is far from just a simple M car, with critics commending its raw driving experience compared to some M cars higher up the food chain. This specific car takes 'pure performance' one step further. First introduced in 2018, the M2 Competition is a high-performance variant of the car that was designed more for track days than your daily commute. The example in question has a list of aftermarket modifications to boost its performance and is currently up for sale with 15,700 miles on the clock.
Compared to the standard M2, the M2 Competition was upgraded even further by the factory, with a carbon fiber reinforced strut bar, enlarged kidney grilles, and optional larger brake discs of 400 mm (15.7 in) in the front axle with six-piston calipers and 380 mm (15.0 in) in the rear axle with four-piston calipers. Due to the larger engine and cooling system, the M2 Competition came in 75kg heavier than its sibling, but this was balanced out with a bump in power. This 2020 BM2 M2 Competition wears a silver paint coat with a carbon fiber hood and carbon fiber wrapped roof. Under the body, the car hides AA mid-pipes, a Scorpion custom exhaust system with downpipes and HR sway bars. This M2 Competition sits on a set of BC forged wheels on Ohlins coil-overs. As for the interior, it consists primarily of black leather with blue stitching. There's a set of bucket seats up front with the M2 badge embroidered in the center. In terms of convenience and safety, this M2 Competition has an interior air filter, front and rear parking sensors, heated mirrors with integrated turn signals, four-wheel ABS, and pre-collision and post-collision safety systems.
Powering this 2020 BMW M2 Competition is the high-performance S55 engine. It's the same basic unit that was used in the F80 M3 and F82 M4, although the 3.0L twin-turbocharged straight-six in the M2 had been slightly detuned to produce 405hp to the rear wheels when it left the factory. With some choice modifications, including a Cary Jordan custom tune, this M2 Competition is reported to output an impressive 580 horsepower.
