2016 BMW M2 Coupe Powertrain Video
Dynamics, agility and precision are the attributes in a BMW M vehicle and allows for continued performance success and racing achievements. At Nürburgring the M2 Coupe clocked an impressive 7:58 lap time and reaches 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds with the M DCT. The highlight of the car is its new 3-liter 6-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower turbo technology. Packing more punch than its replacement BMW 1 M Coupe, the M2 kicks out 365-horsepower and 343 lb.-ft. of torque between 1,400 and 5,560 rpm (369 with overBoost). It comes standard with the 6-speed manual transmission, but I am more of a fan of the optional $2,900 M Double-clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Launch Control.
