Lightweight M2 Competition From Essen Motor Show

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I took a few shots on this beautiful car during the Essen Motor Show Event last December. Lightweight actually has done great performance with that car in the Autobild Sportscars Test on the Sachsenring.

Has anyone installed that lightweight splitter yet? Or is that just essentially the M-performance one with their logo?

Is this still sunset orange? The lighting here really flatters the color and shows it off really well.

It's SO.
The light and the background made it look like this special!
I used no filters for the images.

Swap in a lithium battery and go with the manual transmission and it would be lightweight ... -48 lbs for the battery and -53 lbs with the 6MT.

Looks great. Especially the wheels. But I don't know why I was expecting a weight reduced M2C in this thread.

JJ Abrams called. He wanted to hire you for his next film since they all require lens flares.

I joke but the pictures really does justice for SO
