BMW M PERFORMANCE PARTS. Retrofitted Adrenalin.

The new BMW M2 MotoGP Safety Car is fitted with numerous parts from the product range of BMW M Performance Parts. BMW M Performance Parts are also installed in the other official cars of the MotoGP safety car fleet, optimising both the sporty appearance and the performance. These retrofitting components enable BMW customers to implement their visions of sportiness retroactively and customised for their vehicle. Developed using motorsport expertise, perfectly tailored to the relevant model and combinable as desired – this is how the current BMW M Performance Parts programme presents itself.

The retrofit components for the drivetrain, chassis, aerodynamics and cockpit are developed in close cooperation with BMW M Division. They significantly improve driving dynamics and underline the sporty tone of both the exterior appearance and the interior ambience of the car in question.

More performance, more adrenaline, more character: every customer can put together a made-to-measure package with the BMW M Performance products, which can be retrofitted individually. The aerodynamic accessories reduce lift and give the car a striking look. Front splitter, diffusor, spoiler and carbon mirror caps show that athleticism and aesthetics can work in perfect harmony.

The BMW M Performance Chassis, with its rigidly designed springs, shock absorbers and anti-roll bar is designed to allow an uncompromising sporty style of driving. The outstanding performance of the production engines can actually be surpassed, thanks to the BMW M Performance Power Kit. The innovative BMW M Performance products for the cockpit apply the finishing touches when it comes to sportiness. The BMW M Performance Steering Wheel resembles the kind of steering wheel found in a racing car.

It might be the stripes throwing off the proportions. But damn the ass looks ridiculously huge. The tires even look small compared to how big the rear is.

Yeah I wish they would just leave the gold wheels silver, or all black... Or better yet make them a machine polished version (like the F80/82 ZCP wheels) of the stock wheels. Gold just doesn't go with the M colors in my opinion.

Hope this M2 will be at the MotoGP in April at COTA!

And hopefully at the local dealer a week before the race like the M4 was

I really like this look for some reason...I'd argue it looks better than the M4 Safety Car too. In addition, I wonder what Gold Wheels would look like on LBB?

I like the whole package. Even the gold wheels look good to me on white with the stripes and other decals. Won't be buying gold wheels for my BSM but looks good on this car.
