Article by Christian A., on October 25, 2016

There is no denying that the BMW M2 Coupe is an elegant performer with dynamic capabilities. Its exterior appearance very well conveys its excellent power, precision and agility. As it is, the BMW M2 coupe is a hot commodity that is cool to drive.

While the BMW M2 coupe’s exterior already looks incredible, it would not hurt to give it with some styling upgrades that would make it more appealing and more dynamic. In fact, quite a number of owners would welcome such styling upgrades.

There are several independent firms that have been offering such upgrades, and 3D Design is one of them. 3D Design has been known for offering some of the best aftermarket tuning components for BMW vehicles. And now, the people at 3D Design has taken on the task of beefing up the new BMW M2 – dubbed by most of the media as baby-M model – at least in terms of its look.

According to the company’s plans, the new BMW M2 project by 3D Design will be unveiled at the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon. 3D Design will provide details about the pricing of the program by the end of October.

As it is (without styling upgrades), the BMW M2 coupe dons a sporty appearance thanks to the classic M kidney grille with double slats and M gill elements. The front apron of the BMW M2 coupe features large air inlets in the front apron supply the high-performance M engine with the needed cooling air.

Its already superb aerodynamics is optimized by the air curtain and M rear spoiler. On the rear, the BMW M2 coupe features a diffuser insert in the rear apron with two integrated twin tailpipe. The BMW M2 Coupe rides on wheels wrapped in extra-wide tires.

Under the hood, the standard model features a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter inline engine which delivers 365 bhp and 343 lb.-ft. in revolutions between 1,450 and 4,750 rpm. Using a 6-speed manual transmission, the M2 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, while the M Double Clutch automatic transmission reduces the time to 4.2 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph.

Exterior Design

3D Design’s new styling program for the BMW M2 coupe comes with components made from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CRFP) though the so-called pre-preg construction method.

This new styling program includes an aero kit featuring a front lip spoiler with a pair of canards. This spoiler is basically a plug and play application, allowing it to fit the standard BMW M2 front bumper without having to implement additional modifications.

On the sides, the styling program features a set of new side skirts. On the rear, the program adds a custom diffuser and a large fixed wing. The styling program for the exterior of the BMW M2 coupe also includes Type III forged wheels (either in 19 inches or 20 inches) in a variety of finishes.

All of these additional components from 3D Design help provide the BMW M2 coupe with a stunningly dynamic appearance while helping increase downforce at both the front and rear axles.
