With the evolution of the M2 to the M2 Competition (F87), BMW M GmbH has drastically reduced the prestige gap between this model and its big brother, the M4. Because now, even the “smallest” M is powered by the S55B30 twin-turbo engine used in the M4 (F82/83) and M3 (F80). This engine has only been curtailed slightly in the M2 Competition, with 410 hp as standard compared with the 431 hp of the M4/M3 (or 450 hp in the Competition variants).
Investing in G-POWER performance upgrades for the M2 Competition will get you a 680 hp/860 Nm small-caliber high-speed bullet that plays in the league of the supercars when it comes to driving dynamics. The G-POWER M2 Competition can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and attains air-slicing speeds of more than 330 km/h.
G-POWER has made extensive modifications to the M2 Competition turbochargers in order to provide the power boost. For example, the standard compressor wheel was replaced with a specimen developed by G-POWER and manufactured using CNC milling technology, and its diameter is significantly larger than in the OEM component. Furthermore, sophisticated precision machining has produced a vastly improved flow rate, which makes the G-POWER turbine wheel much more efficient than the series model. At the same time, it is also lighter, meaning that its moment of inertia is reduced, which results in optimal responsiveness.
G-POWER has also modified the turbocharger exhaust side where the turbine blades with capped ends reduce the exhaust gas temperature, making it safe to use higher boost pressures. The efficiency of the turbochargers has been maximized thanks to a CNC-milled exhaust and compressor housing with enlarged inlets and outlets.
In order to reduce the exhaust back pressure and optimize the sound of the M2 Competition G-POWER is offering its very own flow optimized downpipes and a G-POWER exhaust system made from high-grade stainless steel that roars far more forcefully through its two 90-mm twin tailpipes.
Following the modifications to the engine and exhaust system, the G-POWER Performance Software V4 now takes on the role of the conductor, optimally coordinating the individual players in the hardware orchestra. It is individually programmed to the requirements of the base vehicle in G-POWER’s four-wheel chassis dynamometer. The electronics specialists at G-POWER like to take their time over this, and are only satisfied once the curve of the performance diagram matches with the advertised performance to deliver the best possible results.
The driver of the G-POWER M2 Competition has full mastery over this newly acquired power thanks to the vehicle’s supreme handling, with the installation of the company’s G2M RS coilovers. These are best paired with the optional ultra-light G-POWER HURRICANE RR forged wheels, which again provide a noticeable lift to the driving dynamics thanks to the reduction in unsprung rotating masses. The HURRICANE RR double-spoke wheels available in various finishes come in 9×20″ with 245/30R20 high-performance tires on the steering axle of the M2 Competition and in 10.5×20″ with 285/25R20 rubber tyres on the drive axle.
