Latest compiled info for the G87 M2 model [from the Future BMW Models Info Thread]:
- Production 12/22-07/29
- Production only at SLP Mexico
- Same S58 as G80/G82 under the hood, tuned to 455hp. RWD.
- Will be available with a manual and an automatic. Most options will be the same as G80/G82, and I don’t see much of that decontenting that was done with the original F87 compared with F80/F82. Though ceramic brakes and bucket seats seem to be missing, all the drivetrain and suspension things are the same as G82, and even carbon roof will be an option. The wheels will be 19″ front and 20″ rear, G87 specific design. The first four months of its production will fall into the “M 50th anniversary” period so expect the initial run to become somewhat collectible. And the new dashboard will be standard from day one.
- G87 M2 Competition will indeed be called “M2 Competition”.
