This Is The First BMW M2 Convertible In The World

Tuning

Complete with M4 engine upon request.

BMW recently shot down reports it was considering chopping the roof of the M2. Purists rejoiced. Posers were pissed. And tuner’s got to work. Swiss outfit Dahler Design & Technik appear to be the first to introduce a BMW M2 convertible, a project that’s a year in the making. Adding weight and compromising structural rigidity are the primary reasons why the M2, a car built for track-going enthusiasts, would only ever have one body style. Dahler is well aware of these issues, which is why it gave its open-top M2 comes more power, among other things.

Two states of tune are on offer, one that lifts the output of the twin-turbo inline-six from 365 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque (with overboost) to 402 hp and 427 lb-ft of torque, while level 2 gives the baby-M 419 hp and 450 lb-ft, and the ability to clock a sub-four second 0-62 mph time and hit a 187 mph top speed. A stainless-steel exhaust system provides a throatier soundtrack, although a silencer is also on offer to keep things respectable. A new adjustable coil-over suspension can be adjusted to suit, and also lowers the M2, while a high performance brake system with massive 400 mm discs will keep drivers honest. Other mods include a set of CDC1 wheels staggered 20/21 inches front/rear, an MID display unit and a bespoke interior upon request.

There’s no word on how much Duhler wants for its BMW M2 cabrio, but it did reveal that it would be delighted to fit a S55 engine from the M4 in case customers wanted “the pure enjoyment of fresh air with even more understatement.” Any takers?
