BMW is dressing up the 2-Series with some accessory equipment, resulting in the new M240i M Performance Edition.
Although the name suggests a boost in performance, this special edition is mostly about looking the part, as the inline six-cylinder engine receives a whopping five horsepower upgrade, boosted up to 340 hp.
This car is also about being styling, which starts with 19-inch light alloy wheels finished in Orbit Grey with a diamond polished visible side.
On the face of the car you will find a new lip spoiler finished in matte black while the kidney grille bars are also blacked out. At the rear, a partly painted rear diffuser is contrasted by exposed carbon fiber which can also be found trimming the car’s tailpipe. Carbon fiber is also used for the car’s mirror caps and side sill attachments, where you will find an M Performance inscription.
Buyers will be able to choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and an eight-speed automatic, while xDrive will also be optional, but opting for it means you have to take an automatic transmission. Jumping up to 62 mph will take the car 4.4 seconds, while the top speed is limited at 155 mph.
Just 750 units of the M240i will be built and some of those will be sold in the U.S. The car will go on sale in July of this year.
