The interior design of the all-new BMW M2 Competition has a consistent driver focus. The M2 Competition logo on the door sill emphasize the vehicle's athletic ambitions. The optional M Sport seats with illuminated M2 badge and standard M Seat belts not only offer a powerful look but also perfect support. The BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite with interior trim finishers in black high-gloss with highlight trim finisher Pearl Chrome complete this expressive and prestigious ensemble.
The new instrument cluster in black panel design sports M style dials, red needles and a M2 Competition welcome staging in white illumination. The multifunction M leather steering wheel is also optimised for peak performance. The driver can also use the M Drive M1 and M2 buttons to select the desired settings whilst driving. A new red start / stop button underlines the motorsport character of the car.
The M TwinPower Turbo three-litre six-cylinder in-line petrol engine in the all-new BMW M2 Competition leaves nothing to be desired. The high-revving power unit delivers its exceptional output of 302 kW/410 hp at 6,250 rpm and a tremendous peak torque of 550 Nm.

The seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission with Drivelogic is an innovative dual-clutch system specially designed for the high-revving BMW M engine. It enables extremely fast gear changes without any loss of traction. The shift paddles on the M leather steering wheel put the seven gears at your fingertips – for absolute control.
