The BMW F87 M2 was revealed in October 2015 as a replacement for the BMW E82 1M Coupe. The F87 M2 power plant is an upgraded version of the N55 motor which is also found in the M235i. This straight six cylinder 3.0 liter N55 motor is twin turbo powered and outputs 364hp and 343lbft of torque.
Both six-speed manual and dual clutch transmissions are available, however, the dry sump lubrication for the transmission is only offered with the manual transmission. An additional oil cooler for the transmission is only needed for the dual clutch transmission. Dry sump for the engine is standard on all M2 models. 0 - 60 times are 4.2 seconds with the dual-clutch and 4.4 seconds with six-speed manual.
Many of the F87 M2 components carry over from the M3 and M4 vehicles such as the brakes, crankshaft main bearing shells and pistons. Top speed is 155mph electronically limited, unless the buyer upgrades to the M drivers package which then increases the top speed to 168 mph.
Four paint color options are available on the F87 M2, the only nonmetallic offering being Alpine White III.
