While we wait for the high-performance M2 Competition to appear, BMW has dropped this murdered out version of the M2 called the BMW M2 Edition Black Shadow.
The special edition M2 is designed to commemorate the sales success that the M2 has become, taking the title as the best-selling M-Car for 2017, registering a total of 12,000 units sold. BMW is thus offering an edition model to “emphasize the compact high-powered sports car’s performance characteristics.”
Under the hood of the special edition model are the same mechanicals as the regular M2, i.e. It has the famous 272kw 3.0-litre inline-6 motor, but it does gain some cool black-themed design bits. These include side mirrors caps in carbon fibre, high-gloss black kidney grill, a carbon fibre rear diffuser in carbon with black-chrome tailpipes, and other blacked exterior trim pieces. The car is exclusively available in the Sapphire Black metallic. Furthermore, 19-inch, black matte forged light alloys with a Y-spoke design underline the coupe's sporty demeanor.
The new M2 Edition Black Shadow will be available to order from BMW South Africa from April 2018 and will be on dealer floors from June 2018. Only 20 are earmarked for South Africa.
