BMW could have spent wads of cash revising the previous turbocharged N55 inline-six to meet tighter emissions standards. Instead, it snatched a powerplant already in the arsenal, the potent S55 twin-turbo inline-six from the M4. In deference to the M hierarchy, boost is reduced in the M2’s version, lowering the output from 425 horsepower to 405. Torque, however, is undiminished at 406 lb-ft.
Dialing back the S55’s power doesn’t just preserve the M family pecking order; it also addresses a cooling issue. Although the M2 Competition’s fascia is revised and the cooling system is derived from that of the M4 Competition, the smaller car doesn’t flow as much air through its front end, and less airflow means less cooling. But even detuned to 405 horsepower, the S55’s output represents a substantial increase over the outgoing M2’s 365 horses and 369 lb-ft. The M2 Competition rockets down the straights, and the sweet inline-six barks through a new exhaust system, pulling strongly all the way to the redline.
One might ask how do you take this M2 to the next level, but there’s a simple answer to that, you fit on some Brixton Forged PF5 Targa Series wheels. These 20″ PF5 Targa Series wheels are finished in Firecracker Black (Satin) and a Polished (Gloss) outer lip.
