BMW has shown off the X2 M35i sports activity coupe or SAC. This ride has a couple firsts for BMW. The main first is the fitting of the most powerful 2.0L TwinPower Turbo engine BMW has ever offered. That engine is a 2.0L TwinPower turbo unit that makes 302hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
To coax that much power out of the four, BMW had to strengthen the crankshaft, reducing the compression ratio with new pistons, and enlarge the main bearings. BMW also fits its first front axle M Sport limited slip differential to the X2 M35i.
The car is good for 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and will enter production in November for the US market. Pricing is a mystery for now and buyers will be able to select options like M Sport seats in red leather with more support than the normal sport seats in the X2 offer. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
