BMW M2 Coupe is the most affordable M vehicle of its time and it’s the successor of BMW 1 Series M Coupe. The car is known for the great handling and robustness, being a pure and forgiving sports car. The model featured here has the super efficient and super fast DCT 7-speed gearbox (Double Clutch Transmission) that is optional for the model. At the launch of the BMW M2 Coupe, only four colour options were available: Alpine White, Saphire Black Metallic, Long Beach Blue (official launch colour), and Mineral Grey Metallic (as shown here). This particular car featured here is 100% stock and has a very low mileage.
