2019 BMW M2 Competition Will Cost You At Least £49,285 In UK

BMW has published the official starting price of the new M2 Competition, which goes on sale across Britain next month.

The car, which replaces the current M2, will have a starting price of £49,285 ($70,575) OTR, or £2,545 ($3,644) more than its predecessor.

So, why should one pay the premium and not search dealer lots for any remaining BMW M2s? That would be thanks to a number of changes, including a modified variant of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that comes straight from the larger M3 and M4.

It delivers 410PS (405hp / 301kW) and 550Nm (406lb-ft) of torque to the rear axle through a standard six-speed manual gearbox, or an optional seven-speed DCT. That’s 40PS (39hp / 29kW) and 85Nm (63lb-ft) of torque more than the regular M2, translating into a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint time of 4.2sec when paired with the automatic, and 0.2 sec slower for the manual version. Top speed is still limited to 250km/h (155mph), or 274km/h (170mph) with the optional M Driver’s Package.

Other changes include visual updates such as the black chrome exhaust system and 19-inch alloy wheels, with a new pattern, shod in Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber. Special trim, seatbelts, sill plates, red push-button starter, new sport seats and steering wheel, and more, round up the list of changes inside.
