Last week, BMW Malaysia introduced to the local market the new BMW M2 Competition with an asking price of RM626,800, at its natural habitat – the Sepang International Circuit.
And as with the previous unveiling of BMW M cars at Sepang, we were also treated to an immediate test drive of the new car through countless laps around our internationally-acclaimed circuit.
The M2 Competition has been fitted with a de-tuned S55 3.0-litre turbocharged engine from the M3 and M4, making 410 hp and 550 Nm.
Transferring power to the rear wheels is the task of a 7-speed M dual-clutch transmission. 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4.4 seconds onward to an electronically-limted top speed of 250 km/h.
Just for fun, BMW Malaysia brought Christmas forward by throwing in a few M5s and an M4 for us to sample and we’ve got a drive impression video for your viewing pleasure coming up real soon!
For now, allow Adrian to walk you through the facts and figures, ins and outs of this new playful baby M car!
