BMW Australia confirms local M2 prices, $89,900 for Pure edition

December 15, 2015

BMW Australia has announced pricing and specifications for the new M2 Coupe which will arrive here during the second quarter of 2016. It seems a previous report was correct.


Two variants will launch locally, including an entry M2 Pure edition and the regular M2. The Pure will only come with a six-speed manual while the M2 will be offered with both the manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch auto, as reported.

Introducing the Pure edition has allowed BMW to bring down the starting price to a comparatively reasonable level, considering the performance on offer. Both come with a 3.0-litre turbo inline six producing 272kW and 465Nm, with 0-100km/h coming up in just 4.5 seconds (4.3 with DCT auto).

Even in M2 Pure form the list of standard features is quite comprehensive, including an Active M differential, 19-inch alloy wheels, carbon fibre interior trimmings, Professional grade navigation and HiFi sound system with digital radio, and a rear-view camera.

Going for the top-spec M2 gets you active headlights, power adjustable seats with heating functions in the front, and a Harman/Kardon sound system. There’s also an alarm system and comfort access system thrown in. Speaking about the local introduction, Shawn Ticehurst, BMW Australia product and marketing boss, said:

“Australia is already one of the leading markets per capita for BMW M vehicles, and given dealers are already reporting significant levels of interest, we are confident this status will only be enhanced with the M2.”

Prices will start from the following (excluding on-roads), with deliveries scheduled to commence in Q2 next year.

BMW M2 Pure manual – $89,900
BMW M2 DCT auto – $98,900 (manual is no-cost option)
