The second coming of the M2 had better be good because the first one was beloved by automotive enthusiasts for its power, purity, and driving dynamics. The new one looks even angrier with folds and creases everywhere, and it comes powered by a TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder good for 453 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of torque. That’s 48 more horses than the last M2 Competition. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rubber is now staggered with wider 285s in the back and 275s in front. The new M2 also measures at the same track width as the more powerful M4. 0-60 mph comes in 3.9 seconds. The M2 will also get driving aids such as a rev-matching Gear Shift Assistant for the manual transmission, an Active M Differential, Adaptive M Suspension, dual-mode steering, and M Drive Professional with ten traction control settings. To stop all this madness, the M2 gets six-piston brakes biting 15-inch rotors in front and single-piston calipers for the 14.6-inch rear rotors. Inside, there’s sporty plushness with heavily bolstered seats, Vernasca leather, and illuminated M2 badging. It should prove to be a serious hoot on the street, as well as on the track. Expect the new M2 to come in late spring of 2023 at a starting price of $62,200.
