BMW fans who missed out on the first round of M2 pocket rockets had better pick up their ears, as the carmaker announced this week that a second shipment is on the way.
Even before the M2 had launched in Australia, pre-orders meant that the entire first - and potentially, only - allocation was spoken for.
Those who missed the boat first time around didn’t simply concede defeat, however, and now customer demand has driven a second shipment of up to 100 extra M2 units available to customers in Australia.
An August production run will give life to the new M2 fleet, and customer deliveries are expected to occur before the end of the year.
“The BMW M2 has enjoyed extremely positive reviews since its media launch at Targa Tasmania,” BMW Australia CEO, Marc Werner, said.
“We’re delighted to be able to respond to Australian customer and market demand so quickly with these extra vehicles.”
In further good news for fans, BMW has not taken advantage of the increased demand by raising prices.
The original $89,900 plus on-roads price for the M2 Pure (six-speed manual) and $98,900 for the seven-speed automatic model carry over for the second allocation.
Also carrying over is the car’s performance specs, including the 272kW/465Nm six-cylinder petrol engine driving the rear wheels, enabling 0-100km/h times of 4.3 and 4.5 seconds for the auto and manual models respectively.
BMW has not declared whether this will be the ‘final’ allocation of M2s in its current guise, but we suggest customers should act sooner rather than later if they wish to secure one.
