The BMW M2 Coupé offers a supreme driving experience that you won’t forget in a hurry. With its outstanding agility, top-quality dynamics and striking sound, it is unmistakably an ‘M’ vehicle. An optional 7-speed M double-clutch automatic transmission allows extra-quick gear changes. M compound brakes are designed for the heaviest loads. The standard-feature Active M Differential offers maximum driving stability and traction. In short, this is a vehicle created to dominate every road.

M Dual-clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.

The M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative seven-speed double-clutch transmission specially designed for the BMW M high-rev engine. The system boasts a traction-optimised automatic gear selection, Launch Control, Gradient Assist, Hill Detection and Low Speed Assist., (Auto Start/Stop comes as standard – not as part of the Gearbox package – therefore it is not necessary to include it). It makes it possible to change gears extremely quickly without any loss of power.
The system can be controlled automatically or manually using the gearshift paddles on the steering wheel, or the gear stick. This makes it possible to change gears at high speed without using the clutch and without any interruption in the power delivery. 
  • With a light, compact design, the M six-speed manual transmission decreases the total weight of the car, resulting in a wide variety of benefits for dynamics, agility, acceleration and fuel consumption. The lightened gear box also balances the axle load distribution to nearly 50:50, giving the car more neutral and stabilised driving characteristics in every situation.
    Inside the transmission, innovative carbon fibre friction lining makes changing gears effortless. This technology, adopted from motor sports, also contributes to greater efficiency and lower fuel consumption. 

M Quad Tailpipes.

The M Quad Tailpipes with two twin tailpipe finishers optimises the performance and environmental-friendliness of the engine, whilst an electric exhaust flap control perfects the characteristically sporty sound.

Active M Differential.

The Active M Differential variably distributes the drive torque between the two rear wheels to optimise traction and driving stability when accelerating out of bends or on difficult road surfaces. It provides perfect handling without any power waste under situations of extreme acceleration. 

RACING CHARACTERISTICS.

Innovative dynamics, breathtaking agility, precise handling: Three features that have characterised M vehicles from the word go. The driving experience in the BMW M2 Coupé is a result of highly developed technology and extreme testing. Important components have been optimised for use under motorsport conditions and ensure maximum performance at all times.
  • Lateral and longitudinal acceleration that occur in racetrack situations place particular demands on the oil supply. With their motorsport know-how, BMW M GmbH engineers have ensured a safe oil supply − in day-to-day driving and on the racetrack alike.
  • M Dynamic Mode, a sub-function of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), allows for improved driving dynamics by permitting a certain degree of wheel slip.
    DSC uses a variety of sensors to detect unstable driving conditions, such as understeering, oversteering or a loss in traction. DSC then immediately stabilizes the car by regulating engine output and individually braking specific wheels.
    When shifted into the M Dynamic Mode, such measures are initiated later in order to heighten the driving experience. 
  • Drivers can enjoy optimum power steering support in every driving situation with M Servotronic. It adjusts the steering assistance to suit the current speed and delivers a direct and precise steering response even at high speeds. It also ensures supreme comfort by minimising the physical effort required for steering, as well as maximising agility when parking, manoeuvring or navigating narrow roads.
    A control unit uses electronic speed measurements to determine the necessary power steering support for every driving situation. The power steering support is finely adjusted via the electric control unit, making it far more precise than conventional servo-assisted power steering systems that rely on engine speed for orientation.
    With M Servotronic, minimal physical effort is necessary for steering at lower speeds. As speed increases, however, the steering support required is reduced continuously so as to ensure more direct contact with the road and therefore optimum directional stability. M Servotronic is specifically tailored for the M line and offers three settings for individual configuration that can be selected with the push of a button.
  • The Lightweight rear axle helps to reduce the vehicle's weight, improve agility, dynamics and acceleration, and to reduce unsprung mass and optimise traction and suspension comfort. To live up to the demands put on a motor-sport car, the M vehicles' axle was completely rethought. They form a unit with M specific tyres, ensuring optimal tyre adhesion and directional stability in all road conditions.
    The five-arm rear axle's arms and wheel carriers are manufactured with aluminium forging technology, while the rear axle carrier is created using lightweight steel truss-work. That means a significant reduction in weight. The rigid screw-joints connecting it to the body help achieve optimal wheel control. Diagonal bars transfer braking force to the body.

M compound brakes.

The technology behind M compound brakes comes from the world of motorsport, allowing them to maintain constant effectiveness and brake-fade stabilisation, even under demanding usage. The use of various highly resilient materials results in excellent thermal stability, long-term durability and precise braking. It also reduces the weight of the brakes, which has a positive effect on agility, dynamics, acceleration and fuel consumption.
The perforated, ventilated brake disc rings (front 380 mm, rear 370 mm) with four-piston fixed callipers at the front and two-piston fixed callipers at the rear ensure optimal responsiveness in wet conditions and improve heat dissipation. The Blue metallic brake callipers with the characteristic M logo strongly emphasise the brake discs' sporty appearance and distinctive M design.

BMW EfficientDynamics technologies.

BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy developed by BMW to minimise fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. It is a comprehensive technology package that includes the drive train, energy management and the vehicle concept based on intelligent lightweight construction, and it is standard in every BMW.
The new generation of petrol and diesel engines in the BMW TwinPower Turbo family is responsible for the improved performance and lower fuel consumption. Optimised aerodynamics contribute to increasing efficiency, as does BMW EfficientLightweight, which simultaneously lowers weight and increases vehicle rigidity by using the right materials in the right places.
