When it comes to innovation and style few marques can compete with BMW. Not one to rest on its laurels, the company has revealed an M Performance version of its smallest coupé and it boasts a host of customisation options.
The new M240i M Performance Edition features many high-grade exterior components from the M Performance accessory programme, which have been harmonised with care and enhance the sporty appearance and dynamic appeal of the powerful coupé even further, its makers say.
Carbon fibre or black detail parts provide distinctive contrasts to the Alpine White paintwork. The BMW M240i M Performance Edition is powered by a 340bhp inline six-cylinder engine with M Performance TwinPower turbo technology.
The athletic look of the compact sports coupé is highlighted by the large 19-inch light alloy wheels. High-quality double-spoke forged wheels are finished in bicolor Orbit Grey and have a diamond polished visible side; at the front the special edition features aerodynamic parts consisting of air guides, splitter, and bumper front section, whose spoiler lip is finished in matt black.
Carbon fibre tailpipe trim with embossed M logo underline the motor racing character of this model. Carbon fibre outside mirror caps and the side sill attachments with foiled M Performance inscription round off the dynamic appearance of the BMW M240i M Performance Edition.
All M Performance components have been developed especially for the BMW M240i incorporating the full motor sports know-how of BMW M GmbH and are perfectly harmonised with each other. Together they optimise the aerodynamic flow pattern around the car thereby optimising its handling and driving performance.
The powerful model can be ordered either with a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed Steptronic sports transmission. In addition BMW xDrive is optionally available for the high performance coupé. In this case the car always comes with automatic transmission. The compact sports car boasts impressive performance figures. In conjunction with the all-wheel drive it sprints from zero to 100kmph in just 4.4 seconds, the top speed being 250kmph for every variant.
Further, the BMW M240i M Performance Edition is limited to 750 units.
