Nothing evokes the purest sense of performance quite like a BMW M Machine.

The M2 Coupe is the newest M machines to be introduced in the Malaysian market but its heart and soul, came about from its legendary forebear – the iconic 2002 Turbo. It embodies all that BMW had envisioned as the truest and purest form of performance and dynamism in a compact and no-nonsense platform that incorporated all of the technology available at the time of the 2002 Turbo debut forty years ago. The new M2 Coupe remains true to its glorious motorsport roots in every single aspect of its design encompassing its emotive styling and its world leading advancement in performance. From its bold, sporty stance to its compact dimensions, from its exemplary chassis dynamics to its trademark cutting edge powertrain, the M2 Coupe is the truest iteration of an explosive performance car that appears destined to be an icon for years to come.
The compact nature of the M2 Coupe meant that the infusion of the M’s trademark aerodynamic enhancements to its exterior, encompassing among others those large and bold air inlets in the front bumper, flared wheelarches, air curtains, equally bold rear end, plus stylish M aesthetics such as the M kidney grille, and stylish alloys; all of which comes together to deliver a muscular and a pure sense of dynamism that radiates the truest iteration of a compact and purposeful M machine. With such eye catching aesthetic, every inch of it oozes power and hints at what resides within.
What’s within the M2 Coupe’s hood is the latest generation M TwinPower Twin Turbo technology incorporated into the superlative 3 liter six cylinder powerplant.
