This is the BMW M2 Coupe Edition Black Shadow, a special edition of the venerable sports coupe from the Munich-based carmaker – as if it needed to put in more effort to hawk the F87 M2 in the first place.

Anyway, the theme here is as the name suggests, starting with a Sapphire Black metallic exterior colour that is paired with 19-inch forged light alloys with a Y-spoke design and matte black finish. You’ll also get high-gloss black trim on the grille as well as black-chrome trim for the exhausts. Lastly, the side mirror caps and rear diffuser come with a carbon finish.

The 3.0 litre turbocharged inline-six engine remains untouched here, providing 365 hp (370 PS) and 465 Nm of torque. For those who want a 0-100 km/h of just 4.3 seconds, you’ll want the optional seven-speed dual-clutch M DCT automatic. If you want a clutch pedal to play with, a six-speed manual is also available, but comes with a slower century sprint time of 4.5 seconds.

The M2 has proven to quite a popular model, according to BMW, with 12,000 units sold worldwide during its first full production year, and is BMW M’s most successful model in 2017. For the Malaysian market, the M2 is offered with the M DCT, priced at RM535,800.
