2016 BMW M2 Coupe M Performance profile The new BMW M2 Coupé sets the benchmark in the segment of compact high-performance sports cars when it comes to driving dynamics and performance. From March, the dynamic qualities and the visual appearance of the M2 Coupé can be further enhanced with the newly presented range of M Performance Parts.

The M Performance Parts product portfolio features a particularly extensive range of aerodynamic components made of carbon-reinforced plastic (CFRP or carbon fiber). These include front and side sill attachments, rear diffuser and mirror caps that are perfectly harmonized in their aerodynamic effect and additionally emphasise the powerful exterior design of the compact high-performance sports car.

The front and side sill attachments in combination with the rear spoiler and diffuser from the M Performance range optimize the airflow around the vehicle, for example, which in turn impacts positively on handling and driving performance. Matching these there are carbon fiber exterior mirror caps which stylishly round off the car’s enhanced sporty appearance with their striking look. The same applies to the M Performance radiator grille for the front and side in high-gloss black with integrated M logo in the M colors red, blue and light blue. Furthermore, the M Performance flap silencer system makes for more intense perception of the engine sound. Its two operating modes Sport and Track can be set by Bluetooth remote control.

The M Performance flap exhaust system further enhances the M2 visually, too, with its high-gloss silencer unit including deep-embossed M Performance logo, exhaust pipes with a diameter of 80 mm and perforated inner pipe. As an alternative there are also carbon fiber tailpipe trim elements available for the M Performance exhaust system with a diameter of 93 mm and integrated M logo.

Moving to the inside, the M2 Coupe receives a bunch of M Performance elements such as LED door sill cover strips, M Performance floor mats, stainless steel pedal covers. Alcantara cover for the steering and M Performance Pro steering wheel with grip areas covered in Alcantara, along with a light blue central marking at the 12 o’clock position, three-color M seam and optional open-pore carbon fiber trim element with M Performance inscription.

In addition, BMW offers the M Performance steering wheel with race display and carbon fiber trim as standard. With an integrated function display in the upper steering wheel rim. The Performance range for the interior is rounded off with the M Performance Interior Kit Carbon, featuring trim elements for the twin-clutch transmission gear selector level, center console and handbrake handle and the M Performance interior trim finishers with their especially attractive blend of Alcantara and carbon fiber.

The BMW M2 Coupé can be fitted with the M Performance coil-spring suspension so as to optimize road holding and handling. This reduces ground clearance by at least 5 mm as compared to the standard suspension. And the coil-spring technology can be used to lower the vehicle by an additional 20 mm. What is more, the shock absorbers can be adjusted to 16 levels in the rebound stage and 12 in the compression stage.

Lastly, the BMW M Performance sports brake pads offer increased suitability for the race track as well as enhanced active safety. Their composition is derived from the long-distance brake pads that have become well-established in motor racing.
