The market launch of the BMW 2 Series Coupé clinches pole position in the
premium compact segment. The figure 2 in the model designation stands for
supreme sporty flair while the letter M refers to the attractive features
available for making a dynamic driving experience even more intensive. As in the
case of the BMW M Performance automobile BMW
M235i, BMW M Performance parts developed for all variants of the BMW 2
Series Coupé will be available as of the market launch in March 2014. The
retrofit components designed in close collaboration with BMW M GmbH in the areas
of drivetrain, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit perceptibly boost driving
dynamics as well as underscoring the athletic appearance and sporty interior
ambience of the new 2-door model. The product selection forms part of the
Original BMW Parts program and enables the driver of a BMW 2 Series Coupé to add
a touch of individual style in a way that expresses motor racing enthusiasm.
BMW M235i Coupé-Specific M Performance Parts
A highlight in the suspension area is the BMW M Performance limited-slip differential available for the BMW M235i Coupé. When the dynamic stability control function DSC is deactivated, the torque-sensitive mechanical limited-slip differential in the rear axle ensures traction-optimized distribution of drive torque between the rear wheels. It reduces the slip that occurs on the wheel with less grip by transferring more drive power to the other wheels using a blocking effect. This converts engine power into forward momentum as effectively as possible so as to be able to accelerate out of a bend even more dynamically, for instance.
A BMW M Performance silencer system is available for the BMW M235i Coupé which reduces exhaust gas pressure to produce a striking, sports-style sound. In addition BMW M Performance tailpipe trim elements are offered in chrome or carbon, bearing the M logo.
