2018 BMW M2 Release Date, Price, Specs

2018 BMW M2

The 2018 BMW M2 will probably be the lightest Beamer on the market, owing to its carbon fiber body. While BMW has famously used the carbon-fiber monocoque cell design in most sports cars since the ‘70s, this sedan will probably be the highest selling car they make in years. Moreover, the 2018 BMW M2 created a valuable niche in the automobile market with its improved interior and a revised engine.

2018 BMW M2 Interior

The 2018 BMW M2’s revamped interior design has two seats, courtesy of the roll-cage that fills in the rear seats’ space. The seats are a major upgrade from traditional M4 GTS, and you can order customized color combos from the automaker’s interior designs.

2018 BMW M2 Engine

The 2018 BMW M2 uses S55 engines which were in the M3 and M4. The S55 engine has two turbochargers, new pistons, a lighter crankshaft, redesigned engine block, new intercoolers, and valves. More astounding are the two fuel pumps that compliment this beamer’s hood. In the S55, the total output amounts to 400 horsepower and over 400 lb-ft of torque. Currently, the 3.0 L twin-scroll-turbocharged engine with six cylinders is under review and will be replaced by the 425 horsepower twin-turbo S55 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine which amounts to more power under the hood.

A six-speed manual transmission harnesses the engine power, but you may also choose from the seven-speed automatic with a dual clutch. It delivers more handling and most definitely forgives vague steering with the wider tires and strong brakes.

2018 BMW M2 Exterior

From the outside, you will most likely notice the improved bumper which the 2018 BMW M2 uses to get more air to the brakes. More exterior improvements include the exhaust system, which to a large extent is similar to E46 M3 and a rear end that most likely boosts wider fenders. The original prototype had no wing, but there is no telling just how creative the automaker may advance the model before production ceases in 2020.

Having to create a model with stickier qualities on the road compelled the automaker to redesign the wheels. The 2018 BMW M2 has wider rear tires coupled with a restyled grille and bumper and rumored headlights improvements. The traditional beamer exhaust pipes have been changed, but it is most certainly similar to M4 and M3 exhausts. You can order the 2018 BMW M2 in mineral gray, blue metallic, Alpine White, black sapphire or long beach.

2018 BMW M2 Price and Gas Mileage

The beamer’s automatic version costs an extra $2,900 on top of the $52,695, for the manual version. The automatic version’s EPA’s gas mileage rating is 19 mpg while the automaker’s manual is rated 20 mpg.

2018 BMW M2 Towing

While driving the 2018 BMW M2, you will notice the extra torque and horsepower which serves as an informer to its superior tow capacity. Even without an accurate manufacturer rating, both the manual and automatic versions crank up more tow power than your average sedan.

While most features remain vague, the most obvious qualities will become a reality in the 2018 official release date of the 2018 BMW M2. The vehicle is estimated to have such high demand that the buyers will have to wait for some months for a single unit.
