The BMW M2 Coupé (F87) is the flagship model of the BMW 2-Series.

Description

In October 2015, BMW revealed the new flagship 2-Series, the M2, as an indirect successor to the 1-Series M Coupé. The M2 Coupé began production in late 2015 and went on sale for the UK maket in April 2016 with its world debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The car is powered by the BMW N55 engine, tuned for 370 PS (272 kW; 365 bhp). With the 6-speed manual gearbox, the M2 will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds, or 4.3 seconds if equipped with the 7-speed DCT automatic. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but the limiter can be raised to 270 km/h (168 mph) as an option.

Summary

A8 M2 stats (MP MPH)

The BMW M2 was added in the Championship Update as a high-end Class C Elite Car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 932
  • MAX rank: 1304 (+372)
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1505 (+201)
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +67

  • Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 573
  • Upgrade Rank Percentages: 10/40/20/30
  • Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15

Performance

The BMW M2 has very high total/raw top speed, decent nitro, excellent nitro efficiency, decent acceleration, decent drifting, and poor handling; overall, a well-rounded car.

The BMW M2 rivals the ED Design Torq, Mitsubishi Eclipse, Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 and Renault Alpine Celebration.

Usage (Multiplayer)

Due to its low starting rank, large Tuning Kit bonus, moderately low rank-weighting on raw top speed (40%), and Elite status, the BMW M2 can become very good in Multiplayer races, though the latter acts as a double-sided blade as this means the car will break down after a few uses. The BMW M2's total upgrade rank distribution is 10/40/20/30. Therefore, Drivetrain is more efficient to upgrade than Tires.

In a short summary, the BMW M2 achieves a speed of around 223.5 (360 km/h) at rank 1100-1110, a speed of around 236 mph (380 km/h) at rank 1180, and a speed of 246.7 mph (397.3 km/h) at rank 1256.

At rank 1090, the BMW M2 can achieve around the same speed as the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic if tuned correctly.

At rank 1180, the BMW M2 is only slower than the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and the BMW M2 Special Edition.

At rank 1256, the BMW M2 is slightly slower than the Shelby Cobra 427.

The BMW M2 mainly competes with itself, the M2 SE and the e-tron SE between ranks 1100 and 1180. Between ranks 1180 and 1220, it starts to compete with the Shelby Cobra 427.

At rank 1256, the BMW M2's primary competition becomes Shelby Cobra 427s and other BMW M2s. Despite being slightly slower and possessing slightly worse acceleration than the Cobra, the BMW M2 can still be a very strong competitor due to its excellent drifting and nitro efficiency.

Hence at this rank range, the BMW M2 can be used as a "sniper" car, in order to reliably target skilled Cobra users on difficult maps, such as Sector 8, Tenerife, Iceland, Azure Coast, and the Dragon's Den. The BMW M2 can also be used without an Extra Tank, which partially makes up for its inability to be used more than 3 or 4 times in a row, before breaking down due to its Elite Status.

The BMW M2's competitiveness can allow it to gain very high amounts of rating points, despite its Elite Status limitation. This is how the BMW M2 is able to reliably achieve a rating of over 2000 points, with this setup, and possibly a rating of over 2100 points if it is used often enough, despite seeming to be almost completely inferior to the Shelby Cobra 427. In fact, it is more difficult for the Shelby Cobra 427 to achieve Champion League.

After the Mercedes Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition Assembly Cup, the competitiveness of the M2 has decreased, due to more players getting the SLK SE, which is far more superior than the M2. Skewed matchmaking will guarantee M2 drivers meet 1~3 SLK SEs in a race unless on a twisty/short track (eg. Dubai, San Diego Harbor etc.).

With the SLK 55 AMG SE's persistent appearance, M2 drivers should pick a short and twisty track, along with 1 lap races. This increases the chances of an SLK SE being held back by its poor handling and short nitro durations from catching up.

However, as of the Fall Out Boy Update and along with it the introduction of the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition and the slower but equally deadly BMW M2 Special Edition, both versatile and all-rounded cars like the BMW M2, it can no longer achieve a guaranteed victory even with a near-flawless lap.

Therefore, the BMW M2 is no longer the dominant king of rank 1200 it once was (A title now held by the e-tron SE). However, it is still much more competitive than other cars and will serve a skilled driver faithfully.

The BMW M2 still has some usability between 900-1100. With an upgrade setup of [0500 2020] and Elite Tuning of [0800], players will largely only encounter other M2's, the DS Survolt and Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic.

Usage (TLEs)

The BMW M2 can become quite fast with a MAX + PRO + 0808 Elite Tuning setup, being around as fast as the Mitsubishi Eclipse. It is also the top car in the mid Class C TLE bracket, beating the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG, Acura NSX 2005, SRT 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8, and Jaguar F-Type R. However, most people prefer to Multiplayer tune the BMW M2.

Price

The M2 had an original buying price of A8 tokens full 2,150. As of the Car Blueprints Update, the BMW M2 now requires 30 BP cards to be assembled. Assembly takes 2.5 hours to finish and can be skipped for up to A8 tokens full 214.

Tune-ups cost A8 credits small 1,750 and take 2 hours to complete. The Sixth Anniversary Update removed the car's Elite status.

As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades costs A8 credits small 928,000 while Pro Kits require A8 credits small 310,400, 25 of each Class C Part, 24 Early & Initial Techs, 12 Mid-Techs and 40 i6 Engines.

  • The car was given away for free in the Holiday Cup and Giveaway Cup for achieving 21 trophies.
  • The car was given away to players who came third in any race + finished in the top 7000 + achieved 5000 total points in the 2017 Asphalt 8 Anniversary Cup 3-days long multiplayer event.
