    About the M2

    The second-generation BMW M2 coupe is on track to land in Australia from the second quarter of 2023, priced from $119,900 before on-road costs with either the manual or auto transmission.

    That’s $28,000 more than the current range-topping BMW M240i xDrive, $10,000 more than the previous M2 Competition, but about $65,000 cheaper than the bigger M4 Competition.

    Designed to, in BMW’s words, “encapsulate the pure joy of driving”, the new M2 offers all the ingredients: there’s an inline six, a manual gearbox option as well as an auto, and rear-wheel drive.

    It’s not just the successor to the old M2 which found 60,000 buyers worldwide, but also plays the same role as the 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe, the iconic 2000 E46 BMW M3, and even the 1973 BMW 2002 turbo.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on BMW M2 drivability?

    The 3.0-litre TwinPower turbo inline-six punches out 338kW of power and 550Nm peak torque (from 2650rpm), while the engine revs to 7200rpm. The peak power is up 36kW on the old M2 Competition.

    BMW claims the M2’s new engine “differs only in a small number of details from the engine employed in the BMW M3/BMW M4”, though the M4 Competition offers 375kW and 650Nm.

    There’s an exhaust system with electrically actuated flaps and four tailpipes.

    While the standard transmission is an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic with paddle shifters and shift characteristics linked to driving modes, there’s also a six-speed manual gearbox option – just as BMW promised.

    The auto is a touch quicker: the 0-100km/h claim is just 4.1 seconds, versus 4.3sec for the manual. For some context the outgoing M2 Comp claimed 4.2sec. BMW says top speed is 250km/h with a limiter, but this can be raised to 285km/h with the M Driver’s Package.

    BMW has quite naturally stuck with rear-wheel drive, with an Active M Differential that can generate a locking effect of up to 100 per cent. It’s all networked with the stability control for maximum cohesion.

    • Engine: 3.0-litre TwinPower turbo inline-six
    • Power and torque: 338kW and 550Nm
    • Driven wheels: Rear
    • Transmissions: 8AT with paddles or six-speed manual
    • 0-100km/h: 4.1sec top 4.3sec (auto quicker)

    Stopping power comes from 380mm front rotors with six-piston fixed callipers, and 370mm rears with single-piston floating callipers, painted in blue metallic. They sit behind 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, wearing 275/35 ZR19 front and 285/30 ZR20 rear tyres.

    BMW has also made some tweaks to the M Dynamic Mode which allows extra wheel slip at the push of a button, by integrating it with the engine management and shortening the signal path.
