The BMW M2 Coupé opens the door to the world of BMW M models. Both in its conception and in its design, the BMW M2 Coupé harks back to the origins of BMW Motorsport GmbH: it is a coupé with compact dimensions and major power reserves that are transmitted to the road via the rear axles. Typical of BMW M, this model unites high-end motor sport technology with road capability and creates a compact racing car for the road. The front apron with its trapezoidal blades on the far outsides was inspired by aerodynamics parts from the successful history of BMW Motorsport and acts as a reference to the motorsport technology that was used here. Exclusive design features such as the M double slat kidney grille or M twin pipes in combination with muscular, sculpted wheel arches and sills visualize the dynamism and agility of a pure BMW M.
