BMW M2 Competition - "Red Edition"
BMW M2 Competition - "Red Edition"
The BMW M2 Competition has already earned its place in MSport legend.
It is widely recognised as the best M car since the Iconic E30 M3 edition of the late 80’s and is without a doubt one of the best driving experiences available today.
Evo2 Motorsport is very familiar with the E30 M3. We owned both race and road versions and won many races over a three-year period with both BTCC and DTM versions.
Two unique road cars developed by Evo2 Motorsport (a 2.5L DTM for the road and an E30 M3 2.5L convertible) gave many thousands of miles of driving pleasure.
We wanted to build on that experience and have developed the M2 Competition - “Red Edition” you see here. We believe it is the ultimate specification for this iconic car and elevates its status to one of our all-time greats!
At a cost of £86,400 ($112,000) it has not been a cheap exercise, but the desire for perfection rarely is.
Acquired new by us in late 2019, the factory specification is extensive and consists of:
Sapphire black with black/blue Dakota leather with perforation
Comfort Pack - reversing camera, easy access, folding/anti-dazzle mirrors, electric seats with memory Bluetooth and wireless charging
MDCT seven speed
MSport braking system
Electric glass sunroof
Through loading system
BMW adaptive headlights
High beam assist
Harman Kardon hifi
Apple Car Play
Speed limit display
And then the fun started! We wanted to improve the M2 Competition in three ways:
Comfort and usability
Full rolling road custom remap to 528 BHP and 553ft/torque which is unique to Evo2 Motorsport
Mobile phone managed torque per gear settings
Mobile phone managed ‘burble overrun’
Full AST 12-point adjustable coil over suspension (supple ride but can be set from mild to track with easy to use one click system)
Full under bonnet blue carbon induction system, engine cover, stress bar and bonnet lining
Full DTUK mobile phone throttle management system
Full Akrapovic titanium exhaust system (front to rear) with Carbon tips (sound superb) and M button steering wheel flap control
Lightweight bonnet with inset carbon vents
Motorsport front and side carbon aero
Red Competition badges on gloss back side flashes
Red rear M2 badge
Custom carbon rear screen diffuser

Hardwired/integrated laser diffuser/garage opener

The end result is a car that performs better, rides better, sounds better, and in our opinion looks better - the three core values all car tuners look for when creating a new take on an already great platform!
