The most demanding customers will be able to mount the optional sports front seats with carbon structure, being standard the new digital instrument panel that is prevailing in the entire model range.
Mechanically, the “G87” will mount the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that encourages the older brother, and the new generation of the M2, although specific tweaks to the intake and turbochargers will allow the maximum power to be raised to 475 hp . Thanks to a limited-slip differential, the future M2 Competition will be able to more safely digest the power flow sent to the rear wheels, through the 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission .
