BMW M2 gains M Performance model but only in the US


In the same mould as South African exclusives such as the iconic 333i, 745i, 325iS and more recently the M3 Frozen, BMW will be unveiling a limited edition version of the M2 but only for North America.

According to BMW Blog, the M2 M Performance Edition will be limited to just 150 units and feature mainly exterior and interior revisions such as a black kidney grille and side gills, M Performance illuminated door sills, M Performance titanium tipped exhaust an M Performance suspension.

Inside, the M Performance is less radical with manually adjustable sport seats, basic keyless entry system, single-zone climate control and basic sound system.

Known under the code name ZL9, and unlike most special edition BMW's, the Alpine White only M Performance will use the normal M2's 272 kW / 500 N.m 3.0-litre TwinPower straight-six turbo, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual gearbox with the otherwise optional M Drivers Package standard.

Although no complete images have yet been released, orders are now open with the M Performance commanding a sticker price of $61 695 (R801 232).
