BMW India has begun accepting bookings for their much-awaited M2 Competition in India. According to Autocar India, the BMW M2 Competition is expected to launch sometime soon, with deliveries for the car set to begin by the year-end.
The M2 Competition is the smallest 'M Car' offering from the German automaker. The M2 comes in both standard and Competition variants, with only the latter being introduced in India.
The Competition package on the M2 offers additional styling bits, along with extra performance over the standard variant. The car features aggressively sculpted bumpers, muscular bonnet and a gloss black kidney grille among others.
The side profile of the M2 showcases the 10-spoke alloy wheels as compared to the 19-inch five-spoke on the standard variant. The car also features sharp shoulder and character lines, to add to the sporty look of the car. The rear comes with quad-exhaust pipes, the M2 badging and an embossing bumper as well.
Apart from this, BMW also offers the ‘M Performance Kit' which further provides additional carbon-fibre bits on the roof, rear spoiler, diffuser, side skirts, exhaust tips and boot lid. The kit also offers 19-inch forged wheels, along with ‘M Brake package' as well.
The carbon-fibre is continued on the inside as well, along with a mix of leather and alcantara. The M2 is also offered with the BMW iDrive infotainment system with Harmon Kardon audio system as well as a host of other apps and features.
The BMW M2 competition is powered by 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine. IT produces 400bhp and 550Nm of torque. In India, the M2 competition will come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, without the option of an automatic transmission. The manual gearbox will send all 400bhp of power to the rear wheels.
The M2 is capable of completing a 0 - 100km/h run in 4.4 seconds with a limited top speed of 250km/h. This, however, can be further raised to 280km/h with the optional Driver's package.
The BMW M2 Competition in India will initially be available in three colour schemes: White, Silver and Orange. Other exterior paint options will be available at a later stage.
Thoughts On The BMW M2 Competition
The BMW M2 Competition is expected to come with a price tag of around Rs 85 lakh, ex-showroom (India). Once launched the M2 will rival the likes of the Porsche 718 Cayman. Each of the BMW dealers retailing the M2 have been given a sales target of two units each.
