Australia | Premier BMW M Market

MyDrive | BMW Group Australia – BMW Group Australia is proud to announce a further increase in allocation for the award-winning BMW M2 Coupe.

“Demand for the BMW M2 has been strong from the outset,” said BMW Group Australia CEO Marc Werner.

“From an initial 300-unit Australia allocation, we were successful in securing 400 2016-build M2s, which were quickly snapped up.

“This presented us with a strong base to ask for further supply increases to match the sustained demand.

“As a result, we can now announce that Australia has again increased its allocation. This has ensured wait times are minimised, and dealers have immediately-available stock. If you want an M2, come and get one,” he said.

Since its innovative local introduction at Targa Tasmania in 2016, the BMW M2 has been a performance car favourite, winning motoring.com.au’s ‘Australia’s Best Driver’s Car’ and Behind The Wheels’ 2016 Car Of The Year accolades.

This critical success has been further demonstrated by the M2’s performance on showroom floors. June year-to-date figures have cemented the BMW M2 at the top of the tree for the famous BMW M brand, achieving 671 sales since its Australian introduction.

During this period, BMW Australia’s ‘M Share’ (percentage of M sales against total BMW sales range) has increased to 6.1 per cent, which is the highest global percentage for a developed market. For reference, the global average is 2.0 per cent.

The BMW M2
Taking inspiration from 1974’s BMW Motorsport built 2002 Turbo, the BMW M2 Coupe takes the classic ‘compact coupe, big power’ philosophy into BMW’s next 100 years.

Featuring a turbocharged 3.0-litre version of BMW’s renowned straight six-cylinder engine, the BMW M2 generates 272kW of power and 465Nm of torque, with 500Nm available thanks to an overboost function.

Sending these outputs to the rear wheels, the BMW M2 accelerates from standstill to 100km/h in only 4.3 seconds, when fitted with the standard seven-speed M DCT dual-clutch transmission. The no-cost option six-speed manual gearbox achieves the benchmark in 4.5 seconds.

BMW’s M Division has ensured this performance is maximised by fitting an Active M electronically-locking differential, specific wider-track M suspension, recalibrated Driving Experience Control with M Dynamic mode function and M Compound braking system adapted from the larger M4 Coupe.
