This BMW M2 with M Performance Parts has gone full *Fast & Furious*
This is a modified BMW M2 that has clearly crashed through all nine Fast & Furious movies. The wide-arched, bewinged orange coupe is an expression of everything M Division’s in-house modifications department can offer prospective customers.
We first saw the fruits of M’s parts catalogue in October, which involve a suite of add-ons for the 454bhp, straight-six engined performance car. All of these “striking” add-on parts – fashioned out of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic – are said to have a “positive effect on its aerodynamic properties”.
So, there’s a front attachment, new side skirts, a rear diffuser and a massive carbon rear spoiler. A titanium exhaust is available too, said to shave 8kg from the standard M2’s exhaust and allow a fuller rendition of that straight-six clearing its lungs. Inside, there is unique interior trim and hilariously even a set of M Performance knee pads to assist during “sporty, ambitious driving”.
Elsewhere at BMW’s Essen stand, there’ll be M Performance Parts versions of the M3 Touring, M240i, i4 M50 and M135i, too. Though none live their lives a quarter mile at a time quite so much as this M2…
