While you await your test drive, let’s talk about some of the many features of the M2 you have to look forward to:

Driving Experience and Performance

The G87 M2 shares the same engine as that of the G80 M3 Competition, G82 M4 Competition and other M models including the F97 X3M Competition. The engine used is none other than the S58, an M-specific upgraded version of the legendary B58 engine that has gained quite a reputation amongst petrolheads. The S58 has many benefits including increased power potential and fully forged internals. In the M2, this engine drives the rear wheels only and is paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. Whether you go down the purist route or opt for the outright pace the automatic transmission offers, you’re guaranteed to have a blast. 

Tweak the M2’s driving characteristics to your liking via intuitive onboard controls that enable customisation of the engine, chassis, steering, and braking performance. Instantly enable your presets via the “M1” and “M2” buttons mounted on the steering wheel for easy access.

Interior and Technology

Highly supportive comfort seats come standard in the M2, with the option to upgrade to M carbon bucket seats via the M Race Track Package – these not only provide the ultimate support for spirited driving, or as the name suggests, on-track performance but also boast significant aesthetic appeal.  

An abundance of technology features on the G87 M2, making it an extremely capable daily driver. A heated steering wheel, Active Cruise Control, and Comfort Access can be added for further convenience alongside the vast array of standard equipment onboard. BMW’s widescreen multi-media display acts as a central hub within the cabin, utilising the renowned iDrive operating system to present crisp visuals, and a plethora of applications including M Lap Timer and Drift Analyser, alongside more conventional capabilities like Apple CarPlay support. Parking Assistant, heated electric front seats with driver memory, Adaptive LED Headlights with High-Beam Assistant, M Adaptive Suspension, and Live Cockpit Plus with head-up display are amongst other features equipped for enhanced usability on any journey.

Compelling in its design, the G87 M2 is both muscular and purposeful – delivering unmatched road presence, representative of the performance within. Complemented by a range of sensational colour choices, ranging from Zandvoort Blue to Frozen Pure Grey, you have a winner. M Performance parts add extra flair should you wish to turn more heads.
