Until it gets its hands on the new generations of M3 and M4, which is expected to be the case this autumn, the F87 M2 in all its variants remains the “favorite toy” of the BMW tuning community. The M2 Competition presented here was created as a cooperation project of renowned partners.
The compact biturbo sports car is undoubtedly an absolute eye-catcher thanks to its digital printing design wrapping, which was applied by the specialists from Schwabenfolia in Bissingen / Teck. The silk-matt wrapping in racing style, consisting of red-orange tones and black, gives the M2 an optical dynamic even when it is standing.
The same applies to the filigree Project 3.0 wheels from the Ultralight Series from Barracuda Racing Wheels. These cite the color scheme of the body with their milled and then painted flash orange spoke contours, which almost look like colored light rays. Thanks to their manufacturing process using flow forming technology, the 8.5×20 and 10×20 inch rims only weigh around 12 kg each.The Y-spoke wheels were soled with Continental Sport Contact 6 rubbers of dimensions 245/30R20 at the front and 265/30R20 at the rear.
The installed KW Variant 3 coilover suspension is aligned to a lowering of around 30 millimeters on the front and 35 of them on the rear axle. It also allows a separate adjustment of the compression and rebound damping, so that a suitable setup can be coordinated for every application.
