We’ve seen our fair share of underwhelming police cars, but M Town is a different story.
Unlike Los Angeles, M Town is all about performance. As a result, they’ve eschewed the eco-friendly BMW i3 for an M2 Coupe.
While it’s not the most practical choice, that doesn’t matter much in a fictional city where detectives tackle hardcore crime like potholes and gangs building crappy automotive accessories. Speaking of the latter, fuzzy steering wheel covers and wood bead seat covers can get your driver’s licence revoked.
Getting back to the car, the M2 Coupe has an LAPD-inspired black and white livery that looks surprisingly good. The car has also been equipped with a massive push guard and emergency lights. Even the telephone number is a special as it’s 1972 which is the year that BMW M was founded.
While the BMW M2 is no longer in production, it’s been replaced by the M2 Competition. Priced from $58,900, the model has a twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 405 hp (410 PS / 301 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. It can be paired to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. With the latter option, the M2 can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h) when equipped with the optional M Driver’s Package.
