The M2’s standard transmission is a 6-speed manual with rev matching tech.

When fitted with that transmission, the car can reach 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155 mph.

BMW uses a wide track for the M2 with a lightweight aluminum suspension. The car is fitted with a fully variable Active M differential. Brakes are special Nurburgring tested M compound high performance units. The optional ConnectedDrive links with the GoPro app to let you film laps at a race track.
