BMW Catches World Cup Fever, Shows Off German-Themed M2 Competition

BMW is celebrating Germany’s participation in the World Cup by unveiling a one-off M2 Competition with an assortment of M Performance Parts.

Dubbed the Germany Edition, the car has a black exterior with red and gold accents which pay tribute to the country’s national colors. Besides the eye-catching color scheme, BMW installed a number of carbon fiber M Performance parts including a hood, rear spoiler and diffuser. Perhaps the most unique touch is the 19-inch M Performance wheels which are Jet Black and Frozen Gold.

BMW didn’t release interior photos but the company says the model has stainless steel pedal caps and an Alcantara-wrapped M Performance steering wheel with a 12 o’clock marker. Drivers will also find carbon fiber trim and Alcantara upholstery.

Rounding out the changes are an M braking system with red calipers, a carbon fiber engine cover and a black M Performance Parts logo on the windshield. The car also has a carbon fiber grille surround, carbon fiber front fender vents and a unique M2 badge on the trunk.

The M2 Competition was unveiled earlier this year and it features a detuned version of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that resides in the M3 and M4. The engine produces 405 hp (410 PS / 301 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in four seconds flat when equipped with the optional seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The car has a limited top speed of limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h) but that can be increased to 174 mph (280 km/h) when equipped with the optional M Driver’s Package.

The BMW M2 Competition will go on the sale in the United States this summer and the model will reportedly be priced from $58,900.
