The BMW M2 Competition, which replaces the standard version of the two-door performance coupe, will start at $59,895 in the US.
As first reported by BMW Blog, the M2 Competition will start at $58,900 in the US plus $995 in destination, bringing the price to $59,895. Full pricing details in regards to optional extras are not yet available, but we hear it will be offered with an $850 ‘Executive Package’ which will add a heated steering wheel, adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, wireless phone charging and a speed limit monitor. An M Drivers Package will also be offered, and while it’s not yet clear what this may include, the same package was offered on the standard M2 and included a BMW performance driving school, along with the removal of the 155 mph top speed limiter.
Other options for the M2 Competition include an M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic, which will tack $2,900 onto the price, a $1,050 moonroof and $550 metallic paint colors.
The 2019 BMW M2 Competition comes with the 3.0-liter S55 twin-turbocharged inline-six from the BMW M3 and M4. The 405 hp engine replaces the 365 hp, single turbo 3.0-liter found in the standard M2 – mainly because BMW had already adjusted the S55 engine to meet new, stricter emissions regulations. Apart from this new engine, the M2 Competition also receives an M Differential, retuned steering and suspension and a more robust brake kit.
Order books for the 2019 BMW M2 Competition will open this week.
