Local pricing and specifications for the 2018 BMW M2 range have been announced this week, with the updated performance coupe gaining enhanced styling and technological features for the new model year.

BMW M2: Strong demand drives bigger allocation for Oz

High local demand for the BMW M2 has seen the company secure additional allocation of its entry-level 'M' car, the company says, cementing Australia's position as the premier BMW M market. Since its introduction in April last year, the BMW M2 has shifted 671 units, and year-to-date is the M brand's most popular model...

2018 BMW M2 update accidentally revealed on official website

The updated BMW M2 has been revealed ahead of schedule on the company's Belgian website. The images you see here were captured by Bimmer Today before BMW Belgium removed the offending images and details from its website.

German news outlet bimmertoday is reporting a 400 horsepower M2 is being developed, due for release in 2018. Dubbed the M2 CS (not CSL) it’s understood the pocket M-car will receive a makeover, courtesy of its bigger M3 and M4 brothers...

BMW M2 supply for Australia grows

It will surprise few to learn that the 2016 allocation of just 300 BMW M2 coupes for Australia was quickly exhausted. Orders flew out the door so quickly, BMW says, that many who missed out were spending up for an M3 or M4 rather than wait around for next year's deliveries. A clever strategy to boost sales of its more expensive M cars? Perhaps, but you can hardly begrudge a business acting like a business...

40 years of M: a quick look at the history of BMW Motorsport
