The 2016 BMW M2 Coupe is close to hitting showrooms and the M2 MotoGP car is getting ready to hit race tracks. The M2 MotoGP safer car received BMW M Performance Parts upgrades along with its other safety features. It gets plenty of carbon fiber upgrades to set it apart. How does it sound? Check out the video below.

The new BMW M Performance Parts for the M2 sets it apart. The new M2 was in the detail shop and received a number of upgrades to get it ready for the race season. The high-performance coupe gets gold wheels, a gold roll cage, new front air foil, light bar and special tail lights. The back seat has been removed to make way for the roll bar, and performance Recaro seats installed up front.

Carbon fiber everywhere

Carbon fiber trim is installed in the rear exhaust panel, front lip spoiler, side mirror caps and on the sides of M2. A performance wing has been addd to the rear trunk for high-speed stability on the track. To finish out the upgrades, the special Moto GP Safety Car livery is added with the distinguishable BMW red, dark blue and light blue stripes on the front sides and rear of the coupe.

Check out the sound of the new BMW M2 Coupe after it gets the BMW M Performance Parts upgrades.

The 2016 BMW M2 Coupe sounds good in stock form as BMW M didn’t touch the TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline six engine that pumps out an impressive 365 bhp and 343 lb-ft of torque. This should carry it around race tracks in fast pursuit if needed.

When the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six is mated to the optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) and with the launch control activated, the new BMW M2 sprints from 0-60 mph in a quick 4.2 seconds (4.4 s with the six-speed manual gearbox). The top speed of the all-new BMW M2 is electronically limited to 155 mph.
