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.
