BMW M2: blue front

The BMW M2 is a high-performance version of the BMW 2 Series automobile developed by BMW’s motorsport division, BMW M GmbH.

As the 2 Series replaced the 1 Series coupé and convertible models, the first-generation M2 was marketed as the most basic M Car in the range.

The first-generation M2 used the F8x chassis from the M3/M4, code name F87 and featured a more powerful and responsive, turbocharged and slightly modified BMW N55 series engine, while its successors, the M2 Competition and M2 CS, featured a high-performance twin-turbocharged engine developed by BMW M GmbH (S55 engine); improved handling, suspension, and braking systems; aerodynamic body enhancements; interior/exterior accents with the tri-colour “M” (Motorsport) badging and increased weight.

The M2 is unofficially considered as an indirect successor to the BMW 1 Series M Coupé.
