Mcchip-DKR Pumps The BMW M2 To An M4-Beating 450 HP

With 370 hp on offer courtesy of its turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six, the BMW M2 is certainly no slouch. Still, for those who crave even more power, German tuners Mcchip-DKR have the solution.

Starting with the engine, there is a modified turbocharger capable of delivering more boost. The ECU has been remapped, custom downpipes have been fitted and a high-flow 200-cell catalytic converter replaced the stock item.

All up, this results in power rising to 445 hp and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque, making Mcchip-DKR’s M2 more potent than an M4. The tuner has also developed a new intercooler, and fitting it brings the tally up to 450 hp and 690 Nm (509 lb-ft) of twisting power.

To enjoy the entire package, customers will have to part ways with 8,090 euros ($9,000). Not exactly pocket money, but even so the finished item goes for $62,000 in the US, which is at least $5,000 cheaper than a base-spec M4.
