BMW M2 Competition Confirmed Via Photo Of Instrument Cluster

We’ve seen some pictures and heard some rumors about the upcoming M2 Competition. None of these are concrete pieces of information that point towards whether BMW will actually come out with a hardcore variant of the M2. A few new images from BimmerPost confirm that a M2 Competition is actually happening.

The leaked images were taken of the upcoming vehicle’s instrument panel, which has the words “M2 competition” on it. According to quduoheng, the forum user that posted the pictures, the images are “actually in the log from the current M2.” The pictures also provide a look at a red start/stop button, which can also be found on the M3 CS.

So far, we believe that the M2 Competition will be powered by a detuned version of the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six that’s found in the M3 and M4. The engine could generate as much as 400 horsepower. The same transmission options, which include a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, will be available for the M2 Competition.

Like with other vehicles with the available competition package, the M2 Competition should have some extra upgrades to make it better suited for the track, as well.

The M2 Competition isn’t expected to come out at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, but it could be at the Beijing Auto Show in April.
