HAMANN tunes the BMW M2. What you waiting for?
Hamann has developed a unique offer for the smallest BMW with M power: the personality kit comprising differing components. Thanks to this package M2 customers can have their BMWs optimised according to their preference, clearly differing from the standard version: either with refined aerodynamics upgrade, power advancement or sports exhaust system. Every component fulfils Hamann’s high demand regarding precision and detailed improvement. Totally new: since 1 November 2016, Hamann delivers its original parts with a Certificate of Authenticity.
There is no doubt, the BMW M2 has a striking face. But only the small but excellent Hamann aerodynamics upgrade makes it unique. A front spoiler that expands across the whole vehicle width and perfectly concludes the radiator front at the bottom. The “cherry on the cake” is the optional, centred carbon-fibre insert underneath the grille.
However, Hamann does not leave it at that, but additionally offers high-grade attachment parts for the complete M2: from a high-quality sill kit – also with extra wingtips in front of the rear wheel arches – to the rear spoiler and diffuser à la Hamann design in vehicle colour. Small winglets on the left and right set distinctive racing accents and are the perfect completion of the optional stainless-steel sports exhaust system from Hamann, which is decorated with four pipes equipped with carbon-fibre or classical, silver or black anodised tail pieces.
With an additional control unit to optimise the ignition map Hamann increases the power of the 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine from 370 hp to 420 hp (272 kW to 309 kW). The torque is increased from 465 Nm to 530 Nm. Together with the six-gear manual transmission or the optional seven-gear dual-clutch transmission the M2 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. And there is another cherry on the cake: Hamann not only delivers tested quality, but also offers insurance cover for this power advancement, if desired.
