Australia: BMW M2 Competition – Enhanced with M Performance Parts Launch Package
BMW Australia is getting ready to celebrate the arrival of the all-new BMW M2 Competition locally, and to make a big impression, the company decided to launch a special variant enhanced with the M Performance Parts Launch Package.
In Australia, the M2 Competition costs $99,900 in the Pure standard variant, while the top of the line is set at $104,900. However, if you want to add this particular package, then you have to empty your pockets for another $15,990. And by the way, the package is available at every BMW dealer and involves a seven-hour job to install it. That is cheaper than choosing different parts from the package.
As you probably know, the M2 Competition is the hardcore version of the M2, just like the M4 Competition is for the M4 Coupe. It is already enhanced with M goodies and adding the M Performance Parts Launch Package will make it more standout and aggressive. Perhaps for some, way too aggressive and thus too ridiculous.
The M Performance Parts Launch pack comes with a wide range of accessories, comprising both the exterior as well as the interior. There is the carbon fiber front splitter, along with side mirrors and rear spoiler, along with the new bonnet which is also made from carbon fiber. The car`s aggressive rear end is also highlighted by the bespoke and chunkier carbon fiber diffuser.
The interior has not been left out and got the same special treatment. There is the ‘Pro’ steering wheel with carbon fiber trim spokes, adding as well M Performance badges, or carbon fiber treatment for the dashboard and centre console.
Under the hood, the M2 Competition M Performance Parts Launch remains pretty much stock. We are dealing here with the same engine found on the M3 or M4 – the famous S55 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder pot, now producing 302kW and 550 Nm of torque. With a rear-wheel drive setup and standard manual transmission, the M2 Competition allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds. However, with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, the acceleration is reduced by 0.2 seconds.
