The 2019 BMW M2 Competition gets an S55-designated inline-six cylinder engine from the M3 and M4.

To create the M2 Competition, BMW M engineers didn’t just stuff a hotter engine in a regular M2 and call it a day.

There’s a host of chassis improvements to make the most of the added power. For starters, the front and rear axles come straight off the M3/M4, as does the under-hood carbon-fiber strut brace. And for extra stiffness, the rear subframe is mounted to the body without rubber bushings.
Where the BMW M2 Coupe always had a performance-tuned version of the N55 inline-six cylinder from the 2 Series, the new M2 Competition, which replaces the old M2 even though it’s essentially the same car, instead gets a detuned version of the S55-designated inline-six cylinder from the M3 and M4.

The BMW M2 is dead, but now there’s the BMW M2 Competition, which is better. Better in the sense that it’s the M2 Coupe but with the engine out of an M3 making over 400 horsepower - Justin T. Westbrook Staff Writer, nights at Jalopnik
