In the wake of unveiling the brand-spanking new 2023 M2, BMW has now opened the configurator for the much anticipated sports coupe in Europe – we’ll have to wait our turn to play here in North America.
Available in select markets, the little M car is, blessedly, offered with two transmission options. There is, of course, the eight-speed automatic option as well as the enthusiast-approved (and I should hope often selected) six-speed manual transmission.
Next, configurers are given five color options. Naturally, there are the de rigueur subtle tones of Alpine White, Brooklyn Grey Metallic, and Black Sapphire Metallic. There are, however, a pair of louder colors, which are the aggressive Toronto Red metallic, and seaside-inspired Zandvoort Blue. For the time being, BMW told us that there are no Individual color options for the new M2, but that could change in the future.

Options for the wheels are somewhat more limited, however. With just two rim options, buyers can select from 19- and 20-inch 930 M Black double-spoke alloy wheels, or 19- and 20-inch bi-color double-spoke alloy wheels. These can be wrapped in either mixed tires, or they can be sold with both mixed-use and track-specific tires.
Moving inside, four leather options are offered to grace the interior of the two-door sedan. Three shades of black leather (vernasca with blue stitching; vernasca with M motorsports colored highlights; or merino with differed M Motorsport highlights) and one shade of brown called Cognac with mocca stitching.
Those are the only options for U.K. customers, but BMW’s German buyers are also offered an Alcantara seating option with blue contrast stitching. Those same customers are also offered two extra trim options. Whereas people in the U.K. can only have carbon fiber trim, Germans can also select piano black or aluminum trim for their M2.
Finally, buyers can opt for three content packages. The first is the M2 Comfort Package, which adds a heated steering wheel, storage for wireless charging, and comfort access. The M Driver’s Pack (a £2,095 option [US$2,313 at current exchange rates]) raises the top speed of the M2 to 180 mph (290 km/h) and gives buyers a voucher for “M Intensive Training” redeemable at BMW Driving Experience centers.
The M Race Track Package, meanwhile, costs £6,345 (US$7,005) and adds carbon fiber interior trim, an M carbon roof, M carbon bucket seats, as well as everything offered in the M Driver’s package. All of which should make the perfect complement to the 453 hp (338 kW/460 PS) twin-turbo, inline six that powers the M2.
In all, we were able to max out the pricing options at £72,250 ($79,772 USD) with the U.K configurator and €92,360 ($89,574 USD) on the German one with all fees included.
