BMW’s new M2 has made its North American debut at the SEMA show currently underway in Las Vegas. But the version on show isn’t a run-of-the-mill example as the car has been fitted with a number of official M Performance upgrades that will be offered to buyers of the sporty coupe when it goes on sale next spring.
As the M2 is still new, there aren’t as many M Performance parts developed for it compared so some of BMW’s older models, but there are still some performance gains to be had by some of the parts. And don’t forget, the M Performance parts are developed and tested by the same engineers working for BMW M.
Some of the items fitted to the M2 include a gloss black finish for the front and side grilles, a set of carbon fiber mirror caps, a rear spoiler with a carbon fiber finish, new suspension calibration and a high-flow exhaust system with a control valve and carbon fiber tips.
For the interior, the list of M Performance parts include a new steering wheel with Alcantara and carbon fiber trim, a new center console with more Alcantara and carbon fiber, a new gear lever and pedals dressed in stainless steel.
Joining the M2 on BMW’s stand at this week’s SEMA show is an M4 dressed up in M Performance parts. This model also gets some gloss black exterior accents as well as Alcantara and carbon fiber trim in the cabin. Its performance mods include a functional aero kit, lowered suspension and a sports exhaust system that helps lower weight as well as engine back pressure.
