THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Described by Evo Magazine as “One of the most entertaining coupes money can buy!”.
Basically sums the M2 Competition up in a nutshell.
Launched in 2016, the S55 twin turbo charged straight six, with 2963cc displacement, develops an impressive 404 bhp (40 over the standard M2) and 405lb ft torque @2300 / 5200 rpm.
Enough to propel the 1625kgs Super-Coupe from 0-62 mph in 4.4 secs and on towards a limited top speed of 155 mph. Reported combined fuel figures of 30.7 mpg.
Power is directed to the rear wheels, as it should be, via electronic LSD.
The revised design of the exhaust has electronically controlled internal flaps to further enhance the aural sensation at higher speed and revs.
Other more practical design revisions include the sculptural wishbone carbon fibre strut brace and bulkhead brace, to increase torsional rigidity, re-tuned steering set-up, and rose jointed rear suspension. Springs / damper settings have been adjusted, as well as the stability system control. Now having stiffer rear axle mounts, the ride is firm yet controllable. Steering is accurate and precise.
Manual gear changes, via the six speed box, are smooth and involving with balanced handling.
The larger drilled and ventilated 400mm discs, control braking with ease.
We urge you to experience this glorious example while still available.
