BMW wants around £65,000 for this second generation M2 - so think about £15,000 more than was required for its predecessor at launch. That makes the car slightly less expensive than the comparably powerful Porsche 718 Cayman GTS. There's no news on an uprated 'Competition'-spec variant, but we can expect a lightweight, firmer M2 CSL model at some point for those who want a bit more track focus.
That distinctive M car touch, a lightweight M Carbon roof, is standard as usual made out of Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic. And there are Adaptive LED headlights with a BMW Selective Beam non-dazzling High beam Assistant. Also standard is a 3-zone climate control system, acoustic glazing for the windscreen, auto headlamps and wipers, ambient lighting and a Harmon Kardon surround sound system. The key option is to replace the standard M Sport seats with optional M Carbon bucket seats, which are fully electric and heated, come trimmed in Merino leather, can be fitted with a multi-point harness and feature integral head restraints and an illuminated model badge.
Camera safety kit includes Front Collision Warning with brake intervention, Lane Departure Warning including lane return and a Speed Limit Display with no-overtaking indicator. More features are provided in an optional Driving Assistant pack.
