Excitement looms for enthusiasts seeking a high-performance BMW compact coupé—especially for those who find the M240i a bit underwhelming. The all-new M2 is soon arriving in Singapore, and a recent preview event at the BMW Eurokars showroom along Leng Kee Road provided an exclusive insight into BMW's latest sports car.
Unveiling the Powerhouse The M2, a pinnacle in the 2 Series lineup and a true-blue M car, packs a robust punch with its 3.0-liter S58 twin-turbo inline-six engine, boasting an impressive output of 453 bhp and 550 Nm of torque. In comparison, the M240i offers a more modest 369 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.
Power efficiently funnels to the M2's rear wheels, equipped with a staggered wheel setup and a broader track width akin to its larger M4 sibling. Customers can opt for an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission or, with the limited Purist Edition, a six-speed manual transmission.
Performance and Design in Harmony The M2 propels from 0-100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds, reaching a top speed of 250 km/h, extendable to 285 km/h with the optional M Driver's Package available in the Purist-spec BMW. Its performance-oriented chassis, reinforced with bespoke bracing, promises minimal body roll during high-speed cornering, bolstered by the standard Active M Differential that enhances stability.
Aesthetically, the M2 commands attention with its muscular arches, carbon fiber roof, wider fenders, and angular design language. The front fascia boasts aggressive air intakes and distinctive horizontal slats on the kidney grille, maintaining the M2's bold identity.
The interior strikes a balance between performance and comfort, featuring leather, metal, and carbon fiber elements accented with BMW M colors. The advanced BMW Operating System 8 powers the curved dashboard display, complemented by customisable M switches on the steering wheel for individual vehicle setups.
The Journey Begins With a starting price of S$380,000 (excluding COE), the M2 beckons enthusiasts to experience its prowess firsthand. Prospective buyers can contact Eurokars Auto or Performance Motors Limited for an exclusive viewing and a chance to secure a spot among the first 10 depositors, promising a thrilling BMW Driving Experience in Buriram, Thailand.
The all-new BMW M2 stands poised to redefine the high-performance compact coupé segment, promising exhilarating drives and unmatched design finesse for automotive connoisseurs.
