The M2 Competition also makes use of the race-tested cooling system from the BMW M4 with the Competition Package, consisting of one central radiator, two side radiators and an additional engine oil cooler. Cars making use of the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) also feature a transmission oil cooler. This system ensures that ideal operating temperatures are maintained on short city journeys during everyday use, as well as out on the racetrack.
A red start-stop button underlines the motorsport heritage of the car and the M1 and M2 buttons on the steering wheel also provide direct access to the range of driving modes. Drivers can save their own personal configurations chosen from the settings for stability control, engine characteristics and steering – control over the character of the M2 Competition is at their fingertips. The M1 and M2 steering wheel buttons are pre-programmed with a Comfort and a Sport program as standard and drivers can return to these settings at any time.
With the addition of options including the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic, or the M Driver’s Package, owners can receive a BMW Driving Experience voucher for a track training course at the U.S. BMW Performance Center East or West. Full details are available from local BMW retailers.
The world debut of the M2 Competition will take place at the 2018 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2018) April 27-May 4.
