2025 BMW M2 packs more power, colour options


New member
The updated 2025 BMW M2 has been revealed overnight, with the German manufacturer detailing performance, technology, and aesthetic upgrades for its least-expensive high-performance model.

UPDATE, 13/6/24 – 14:30: BMW Australia has announced the updated M2 is due in the fourth quarter of 2024 (October to December, inclusive), with pricing to be announced in July.

A power bump headlines the changes – the facelifted BMW M2 produces 353kW from its twin-turbo 3.0-litre inline-six, 15kW more than the current model.

Torque is also up from 550Nm to 600Nm for examples equipped with the standard eight-speed automatic transmission, although the torque figure is unchanged for cars fitted with three pedals.

That’s right, you can still buy the M2 with a manual transmission.

BMW also claims that the updated M2 is more responsive thanks to changes to throttle mapping.

With higher outputs, the automatic M2 can sprint from 0-100km/h in a claimed 4.0 seconds, an improvement of one-tenth compared to the pre-update model. Manual examples complete the same sprint in 4.2s.

Regardless of the transmission fitted, the more powerful M2 is 0.6s quicker to reach 200km/h from a standing start.

The performance gains are in line with recent updates to the M3 and M4 performance models, which were also recently tweaked to produce an extra 15kW.

BMW has announced style updates to match the substance under the skin, too.

The M2 is now available with a choice of nine colours, including new finishes such as Sao Paulo Yellow, Fire Red metallic, Portimao Blue metallic and Skyscraper Grey metallic.

BMW Individual paint finishes including Java Green, Voodoo Blue, Grigio Telesto and Twilight Purple will feature in the catalogue, taking the total number of colours on offer from five to 14.

Buyers can also opt to swap out the standard black alloy wheels for silver rims, giving it a less aggressive look.

Changes also extend to the interior of the M2, which presents with a new flat-bottom steering wheel and BMW’s latest Operating System 8.5, aligning it with other models.

This reflects updates to the BMW 2 Series it’s based on, also announced today.

BMW is expected to continue offering the M2 with a manual gearbox until the end of its lifecycle – expected to be 2030.
