Thanks to its impressive power and small size, it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds when equipped with the quick 7-speed dual-clutch M transmission. To some, it’s clearly a package that needs no change. However, this owner had other ideas in mind.
This Alpine White BMW M2 by European Auto Source features a big list of aftermarket visual and performance upgrades, starting with an M Performance carbon fiber trunk spoiler and a carbon fiber rear diffuser, a set of black kidney grilles, and carbon fiber mirror covers. All of these aerodynamic pieces add a nice touch of contrast to the white exterior of this M2.

Everything started before allows the vehicle, equipped with the optional seven-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission (M DCT) and Launch Control, to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
Stock, the beast comes with a long list of standard equipment performance-oriented. Available as an option, the seven-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission (MDCT) with Drivelogic shifts gears with incredible speed, with no interruptions to the flow of power. Also, available is an extensive selection of driver assistance systems and mobility services from the BMW ConnectedDrive portfolio.

For this particular BMW M2, the owner opted to upgrade his wheelset and performance. Ohlins Road and Track DFV shocks add that extra speed and cornering agility. Along with the suspension upgrade, the owner opted for a set of aftermarket APEX wheels. These aftermarket APEX EC-7 wheels come in 18×9.5 sizes front and rear, with a silver finish.
Wheel spacers were additionally added coming in sizes 12mm and 10mm in the front and rear, respectively the perfect finishing touch, as they push the wheels flush with the fenders. The Macht Schnell tow strap is the icing on the cake.
