The hotly anticipated BMW M2 Competition Pack has leaked online, in front of its rumoured unveil in the Beijing Motor Show later this month. Official specs are thin on the floor, but reports suggest it’ll inherit the M3 and M4’s pokier 3.-litre straight six.
But despite switching engines, it’s thought the M2 Competition Pack’s unit is going to be de-tuned to provide 404bhp – as opposed to the M3’s 425bhp. It’ll obtain the same 550Nm of torque, however, helping it sprint from -62mph within an M3-beating 4.2 seconds. That figure is perfect for the DCT automatic vehicle there’s no reference to the manual at this time.

Design-wise, your competition Pack vehicle offers buyers an array of subtle upgrades – including new 19-inch wheels, black badges, a black kidney grille along with a new front bumper. All of those other lately-facelifted M2’s changes are transported over, comprising revised rear light clusters and adaptive Brought headlamps.
The leaked interior picture shows a brand new red starter button, in addition to ‘M1’ and ‘M2’ configurable drive mode buttons around the controls. You will find new M4-sourced seats with illuminated badging, too.
If the M2 Competition Pack will switch the standard M2 or sit above it within the range is unclear, however the upgrades won’ doubt command a proper premium for prospective buyers. Because of the current vehicle costs from 46,700, it’s likely the brand new model is going to be priced closer to 50,000.
More details will surface within the coming days, in front of the car’s assumed unveil in the Beijing display on 25 April. Return soon for more pictures and official details.
