THE NEW BMW M240i COUPÉ.

The signature of M design on the BMW M240i Coupé is unmistakeable. Apart from the M Sport package, a large number of specific M Performance features ensure that this spirited two-door vehicle is something special.


Exclusive light-alloy wheels, exhaust pipe finishers on both sides, colour-accentuated mirror caps – outside and inside, this M Performance Coupé gives clear indications of its sporting DNA. At first glance discreet, at second glance captivating and at the next moment, when the 6-cylinder engine starts up, simply thrilling.

EXTERIOR DESIGN.

The M Performance model BMW M240i is the sportiest BMW 2 Series Coupé variant in every respect. Every detail and every line is synonymous with pure driving pleasure and exceptional driving dynamics. Design features in accent colour – As an exclusive addition, the side air inlets of the aerodynamic front apron on the BMW M240i Coupé are fitted with design elements in Ferric Grey.


18-inch M Double-spoke 436 M – The exclusive light-alloy wheels in Ferric Grey in conjunction with the M Sport brake optimally transfer acceleration and braking operations to the asphalt (225/40 ZR18 front, 245/35 ZR18 rear).


Exterior mirror caps in accent colour – The curved mirror caps are finished in Ferric Grey. Their aerodynamic design offers barely any resistance to the airstream.


The M logo in Dark Chrome is an elegant way of accentuating that the BMW M240i Coupé is an M Performance Automobile.

Exhaust pipe finishers on both sides – Exclusive to the BMW 2 Series, the exhaust pipe finishers in Black Chrome on both sides in the BMW M240i Coupé indicate the modified exhaust system without middle silencer and with air vent control.


Model designation in Dark Chrome – The specific model designation on the rear in accent colour underlines the close relationship of the BMW M240i Coupé with the models of BMW M.


Door sill finishers with model designation – The exclusive aluminium inserts with model designation arouse joyous anticipation of the driving experience to come in both driver and front passenger.


Model designation in the cockpit – Setting sporty accents directly in the driver’s field of vision are the digital model designation, the red dial design and the fine chrono scaling in the instrument cluster.

M PERFORMANCE TWINPOWER TURBO PETROL ENGINE.

The BMW M240i not only inspires with its unbridled power, but also with pure agility and everyday utility.


The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 3.0 litres combines Valvetronic including Double-VANOS and direct petrol injection with a Twin Scroll turbocharger. Its extremely spontaneous response, high torque even at low revs and across a broad power band are the distinguishing features of this powerful engine. The result is a maximum torque of 500 Nm with an average fuel consumption* of 7.1l/100 km. In only 4.6 seconds, the BMW M240i accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h. Within the BMW 2 Series, this engine is used exclusively in the BMW M240i.


The specific exhaust system of the BMW M240i Coupé can be instantly recognised by the tailpipes in Black Chrome on both sides. Elimination of the middle silencer and the intelligent air vent control produce a charismatic sound, which even exerts its spine-tingling effect on the occupants of the sport seats. These extensive acoustic optimisations significantly reinforce the sports car sensation even more.

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

The driving dynamics concept of the BMW M240i Coupé is designed with a view to performance. Increased driving pleasure with unlimited everyday utility is the objective.


The high level of agility and precision in the handling and the balanced tuning of all components can be felt when coming out of every bend. With their extensive modifications, the engineers of BMW M GmbH have optimised the suspension and steering characteristics of this exclusive coupé down to the finest detail.


In order to translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive and authoritative driving dynamics, springs and stabiliser have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine. Specific elasto-kinematics for the front axle guarantee impressive driving moments. Even more agility is achieved by the specially tuned M sport suspension lowered by 10 millimetres and the variable sport steering including Servotronic. The optional BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system distributes the propulsive force of the BMW M240i xDrive Coupé flexibly between the axles and supplies best possible traction even under difficult road conditions.


Responsible for the dynamic sprints of the BMW M240i Coupé is the option of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission. The Launch Control it contains ensures that accelerations from 0 to 100 km/h are possible in only 4.6 seconds. Simply press the DSC button, set the selector lever to position “S”, briefly depress the brake and kick down the accelerator pedal – releasing the brake now will teach you precisely what thrust means.


The 18-inch M light-alloy wheels of the type 436 M Double-spoke at the front are brought resolutely to a standstill by four-piston fixed calliper aluminium brake disc brakes. Acting on the rear axle is a two-piston version. Thanks to internal ventilation they perform reliably even under a high thermal load. Even when the vehicle is stationary, this tremendous braking power can be recognised by the distinct blue brake callipers with M logo.
