The M2 is the small BMW sports car we've been waiting for the German company to make, and now that it's here, we can't get enough of it. It might have a few flaws, but it's by far the best new BMW performance model on sale right now. Dinan, a famous BMW tuning company known for building fantastic modded M cars, decided it could make the M2 even better.
Thanks to Dinan, the N55 turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six powering the M2 has been pushed to 446 horsepower and 445 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to a big turbo kit, a resonator delete, an intake, and a full exhaust.
Complementing all that extra power is a full Dinan coil-over suspension system, as well as a big brake kit and custom Dinan wheels. Wrapping it all up is a host of carbon fiber exterior pieces to let everyone know this is no normal M2.
The price of all these upgrades? Around $26,000, the price of a base M2 with a dual-clutch transmission. Sure, all these upgrades make the car better, but are they worth it? Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire is here to find out. Watch as he takes the M2 through some canyon roads and shares his thoughts.
