LIGHTWEIGHT in Mittenaar is deeply committed to the slogan „Innovations are generated from passion rather than satisfaction“. The company’s name portrays their program, because weight reduction – for example by a titanium exhaust system in combination with a performance upgrade – provides minimal weight and maximum performance.

The LIGHTWEIGHT team led by Managing Director Marc MÜLLER chose a BMW M2 in order to optimize its weight and performance. For starters, the original version of this vehicle already comes with a mighty engine. As of now the dynamic BMW – referred to as LW M2 – scores 450 PS / 444 HP, 690 ft.-lbs. of torque and a Vmax of 297 km/h.

To achieve a visually captivating manner for the LIGHTWEIGHT top figures of the ultimate motorization of the series 2 a LW-PE-front spoiler blade, a LW-rear wing and the LW-outside mirrors in M4-design – both made of carbon – as well as an air-intake-control (Airbox) in pure carbon have been installed. High-strength vinyls on the air-intake as well as on the trunk lid reward the LW M2 a considerably more aggressive look. The forged LW-rims in 10×19 with 265/30-19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 on the front and rear axle are combined with a Clubsport suspension kit by Bilstein including LW-labeling. The magnificent LW-titanium tail pipes with valve throttle control system and a 300-cell-turbo-downpipe as well as the impressive GT-brake system by Brembo with 380-mm-discs for the front and rear well-deserve a special mention. Once more LIGHTWEIGHT proved their astonishing abilities by establishing an exquisite interior with carbon performance seats upholstered in their in-house Alcantara fabric, LW-velour floor mats, a LW-aluminium pedal set, an additional display system and fine interior panels in real carbon.

One conclusion is most important to LW-Managing Director Marc MÜLLER: the herein presented LW M2 is good for daily use, but one can obtain impressive lap times on a race track, too. Anyway, the “real” LW M2 is still in development as we speak. A breathtaking M2 absolutely optimized for race tracks with a lot of carbon components, more power and significantly more performance will make the hearts of the fans beat faster.
