BMW M240i M Performance Edition announced for limited production

The German marque says just 750 units of this 2 Series M Performance variant will be made

Following swiftly in the footsteps of the freshly facelifted 2 Series, BMW has unleashed a new M Performance variant of its smallest coupe, boasting a host of M Division styling goodies and set to be limited to just 750 units. 

Called the M240i M Performance Edition, powertrain specifications and performance figures for the car are carried over directly from the regular M240i. As such, a 335bhp turbocharged straight-six sits under the bonnet, unlocking 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph. A six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox will be available, as will optional xDrive all-wheel-drive. What has changed is the look of the car, the M240i M Performance is all about unique styling and trim finishes.

Alpine White paintwork comes as standard, and contrasts against exterior trim details finished in either a flat-black colour or carbon-fibre. The M240i rides on multi-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels, finished in grey with a flat, diamond cut finish on the edges of the spokes. 

The front apron has been tweaked with new aerodynamic elements, boasting new air guides sitting above a new splitter and refreshed front bumper. It’s joined an all-black kidney grille and carbon-fibre door mirror caps. 

Around the rear, the diffuser gains a black paint finish, while a new carbon-fibre lip spoiler sits on the bootlid. Like the door-mirrors, the exhaust tips are wrapped with a carbon-fibre finish. 

No UK prices have been revealed, but order books for the M240i M Performance will open in July.
