BMW M2 Competition Spills The Beans On Its Front End

With a few months still to go before its alleged unveiling, the BMW M2 Competition’s front fascia has been partially revealed.

The image posted on Instagram and shared by BMWBlog reveals a wider grille, finished in black, larger air intakes in the front bumper, which now adds parking sensors as well, and what appear to be slightly different side mirrors.

It may not be visible in the leaked photo, but the BMW M2 Competition will be slightly wider than the ‘regular’ car, so we expect larger fenders too. Elsewhere, the rear end of the car will likely become more aggressive, and new wheels should complete the look on the outside.

In the cabin, it will get some trim upgrades to differentiate itself from the current model, along with M Sport seats, and probably a few other touches made here and there.

Nevertheless, the biggest changes will include the tweaked or new suspension and brakes, and the S55 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine that’s used in the M3 and M4, detuned to make just over 400hp – it will replace the N55 365hp unit of the current M2.

BMW will reportedly pull the cover off the new M2 Competition in April, and put it into production in July, so expect it in showrooms in the second half of the year, as a 2019MY.

It’s possible that the BMW M2 Competition won’t be offered alongside the current M2, as it could replace it completely, but we’ll take it with a grain of salt, since the automaker hasn’t announced anything yet.
