Home / Social media / News / BMW's M2 with BMW M Performance Parts debuts in Essen. Is it better looking wearing makeup on?


The all-new for 2023 (well for now but you know what we mean) BMW M2 is one of those BMWs born straight into controversy. While it has everything a modern sports car needs, like a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre 6-cylinder that’s rated to produce a healthy 338 kW with 550 Nm of torque. This is claimed to afford the compact M Car a quick 0-100 km/h dash of just 4.1-seconds and can hit a top speed of 285 km/h if the optional M Driver’s package is taken, it is lacking a little in the looks department. That said when the last M3/4 was launched with that oversized grille the auto communities lost their minds, but like moss, it slowly grew on people. The same is set to happen to the BMW M2, but until it’s been seen scattering the SEMA showroom floors packed with aftermarket goodies, the performance side of the company has released its range of OEM performance parts. The parts list is quite extensive and it does look better with the parts fitted. The M Performance pats aren't just for the M2, but the entire M-Car range. How cool is that wagon? 

The customisation options have been developed specifically for the new BMW M2 and the whole list of add-on parts for the front, rear and sides are made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), that’s sealed with a transparent coating to reveal the typical fibre structure of the material. The list of components includes the M Performance Carbon front attachment, the M Performance Carbon side skirt attachments, the M Performance Carbon rear diffuser or the M Performance Carbon rear spoiler. While aesthetically awesome, they actually do improve the aero. The M Performance Titanium silencer system saves eight kilograms in weight too.There’s also a range of BMW M Performance Parts in the areas of drive, chassis and cockpit. In the interior there’s a choice of M Performance interior trims in Carbon/Alcantara, the M Performance armrest can be had in Alcantara as well as the M Performance knee pads Alcantara provide a secure grip during spirited driving. While other sites have showed you a few pics, here’s the full media set for you because SXdrv rocks, ok. 

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off the all-new BMW M2, albeit without makeup on, but even in less pretty form it's admittedly an amazing car all round: THE M2 (2023). All you need to know | BMW M
