Look, BMW’s current design language has been polarizing for some time. We should therefore not be stupid about it, BMW is looking for that discussion itself. It certainly does not harm the brand, because never before have so many BMWs been sold as now. But when is too far too far? Well, maybe we have found that line with the M Performance Parts for the brand new M2.
Need For Speed called, they want their spoiler back
The assignment in developing the M Performance Parts was nevertheless amiable. The designers were given the task of paying tribute to the 3.0 CSL, an iconic sporty coupé of the brand that will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2023. Grandson M2 clearly took the assignment for granted, because the result is astonishing. BMW drapes the M2 all around with a lot of wings and splitters and the rear bumper is also accentuated with continuous black inserts that run towards the rear wheels. While we’re at the back, there’s no shortage of style details there. Just look at the angled rear silencers and the spoiler on the boot lid and on the rear window. That spoiler combo is also the first and only nod to the original 3.0 CSL.
If we jump back to the side, we see that you can get unique rims through M Performance Parts that measure 21 inches at the front and 22 inches at the back. Decals all around complete the picture, as do the carbon fiber accents in the interior. The M Performance Parts do not change anything mechanically. So you still get 460 hp and 550 Nm under your right foot from the twin-turbo six-in-line. Although the exhaust line of M Performance Parts will of course provide just that little bit more sound.
