M Performance Parts embody a sporty appearance and further enhanced driving dynamics. The new BMW M Performance Parts Concept based on the BMW M2 provides an even more marked shift in athletic flair towards motor racing style by means of a consistent weight reduction of more than 60 kilograms combined with optimized aerodynamics.
The BMW M Performance Parts Concept is aptly presented in the exterior paint finish Frozen Black with M Performance wrapping in gold for accentuations and inscriptions. In the interior, Alcantara and carbon fiber further emphasize the sense of exclusivity, along with additional gold accentuations.
BMW M GmbH was closely involved in creating this more emphatic design, contributing its racing expertise to the development of all M Performance Parts. The BMW M Performance Parts Concept sees its world premiere on 12 July: it will be lining up for the start of the hill race at the Festival of Speed in Goodwood (UK).
In addition to M Performance Parts that are already available, the BMW M Performance Parts Concept offers exclusive concept features. The result is a lower vehicle weight and therefore further optimized driving dynamics – and this applies on the race track, too. The overall effect is achieved by a range of individual measures – the use of carbon fiber has a particularly important role to play. This high-tech material is extremely stable but much lighter than standard components. With its unique appeal, it also ensures an exceptional appearance.
An eye-catching rear is provided by the M Performance carbon fiber tailgate (expected to be available from 11/2018): it weighs five kilograms less than the standard part. The M Performance carbon fiber rear diffuser (available) reduces the car’s weight by 0.5 kilograms and also optimizes aerodynamics; in the Concept it bears a gold accentuation.
To match the exterior body finish, the springs of the M Performance suspension in the Concept are finished in black, as are the calipers of the 18-inch brakes. An additional weight reduction of 14 kilograms is achieved by the use of a lighter BMW battery.
