The long-awaited 2023 BMW M2 facelift has officially debuted. The car includes the front and side lines, as well as the frameless double kidney grille, lower bumper air intake, headlights, slightly raised hood, side skirts and wheel arches, and rear diffuser, etc. The design tends to be square, creating a calm and solid visual impression, which should be quite appealing to fans who are looking forward to a more dynamic appearance.
The 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder twin-turbo engine, codenamed S58, delivers 453 hp and 550 Nm of peak torque, accelerates to zero 100 km in 3.9 seconds, 4.1 seconds for the manual version, and reaches a top speed of 248 kmh, rising to 283 kmh with the M Driver’s Package.
Of course, it is essential that the driving performance is perfect, whether it is the almost balanced 50:50 front-to-rear weight ratio, the short wheelbase, the two-door structure, or the use of powerful power and chassis technology, so that the driver can maintain a controlled posture under the extreme driving conditions. A 6-speed manual transmission is also standard to meet the needs of enthusiasts, or an 8-speed M Steptronic manual transmission is available as an option.
The 2023 BMW M2 is expected to debut in April next year with a starting price of $62,200, and interested readers may want to keep an eye on it.
