Alpha-N Performance Upgrades BMW M2 Model
|   Saturday, November 12, 2016
Powerful tuning kits have been and are still the favorites toys for the Germans from Alpha-N Performance. Over the years, the aftermarket specialists have created an impressive series of kits, the best and most attractive being developed for BMW.

You might remember the RS program for the 1 Series M in 2012, about the GT2-R program for M3 in 2013, or the more recent program Stage 1 for BMW M4 from 2014. All of them have something in common, and not because they are created by the same company, but because they provide improvements for some of the most powerful sports cars from BMW's range.


As it has proved time and time again, Alpha-N Performance’s GTS kit tend to a lot of tastes. In particular the aerodynamic upgrades are a fountain of smirks. Add to that the fact that this time they brought in help from industry expert in Edison Composites , so you can get an idea of the attention poured into this project to give us a unique tuning kit.

Now, Alpha-N Performance is launching a new program with the intention to buff a model, this time intended for the new M2 model. Before we learn more, we must say that the R2 tuning kit for M2 offers a wide range of improvements for the exterior, interior and performance. A quick glance cast over the new car reveals a different sport coupe with a more functional appearance compared to the standard model M2.

The transformation comes primarily from the aerodynamic components. In front a spoiler was mounted from carbon fiber with an air separator, which helps improve aerodynamic coefficient. In the back, we see a number of components, all carbon fiber, positioned on the side sills and an aileron alongside a new air diffuser. Add to list of improvements a lightweight alloy set of 19-inch rims, wrapped in245 / 35R19 and 265 / 35R19 tires.

In the interior, changes are minimal, as we have become accustomed with by the specialists from Alpha-N Performance. Don't wait for the new materials because you will be disappointed. Fortunately, the Germans will not let us dream because the M2 version comes with a number of performance components, including the choice of a complete roll cage and light weight racing seats, which probably come dressed in Recaro leather.

The most important change of the tuning program comes under the hood and it seems that the Germans have dropped the three configurations, offered previously at 394 hp, 409 hp or 424 horsepower, and offers to its clients only one version, a turbocharged engine with a displacement of 3.0 liters which supplies 450 horse power.

Details relating to the performance of the new engine were not disclosed yet, but the journalists from specialized media believe that the new M2 equipped with Alpha-N Performance package will sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in just 4 seconds. The German tuner has not yet announced the package prices specifically for the M2, but we will find out certainly in November when the Alpha-N Performance will be officially presented at the Motor Show in Essen (26 November - 4 December 2016).
