BMW M240i M Performance Edition Adds a Little More Power

(M)mm, mmm, good!

Move over, M2. The latest performance 2 Series that will surely get the attention of enthusiasts is theBMW M240i M Performance Edition.

Already made up of a laundry list of M Performance Parts, the BMW M240i is a competent performance machine. With a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine, it generates 335 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. For the rear-wheel-drive optioned M240i, 0-60 mph can be cracked off in just 4.4 seconds (4.2 for the all-wheel-drive model).

For the M240i M Performance Edition, BMW has apparently shot the standard car with a few muscle enhancers and put it on a carbon fiber diet program. Starting with the engine, the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine now produces 340 horsepower and sprints to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds. Buyers can choose between a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive is available.

Additionally, the new M240i M Performance Edition receives a host of "sporty" exterior details that further enhance the car's overall stance and performance aesthetic. New additions include carbon-fiber and painted black details, such as new front air guides, a new front bumper and splitter, new blacked-out radiator grille, a new painted rear diffuser, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Carbon-fiber mirror caps, side sills, and carbon-fiber tailpipe trim are also included.

Building onthe M240i M Performance Edition's performance credibility, BMW has added stickier tires—225/35 R19s up front and 245/30 R19s in the rear—and a set of "high-quality double-spoke forged wheels" finished in a "bicolor" Orbit Gray with a diamond polish.

The BMW M240i M Performance Edition will be assembled exclusively at BMW's Leipzig plant in Germany, alongside the M2, i3, 2 Series lineup, 1 Series 5-door, and BMW i8. BMW is limiting the amount of M240i M Performance Editions to just 750 units worldwide, and it will become available in July.

BMW hasn't disclosed the price on this new performance model, but given that a base M240i starts at $45,445, it's safe to assume that the M240i M Performance Edition will cost a few thousand dollars more.
