The main gripe that purists have with the M2 is that its engine is not, technically, a BMW Motorsport spec engine. It still makes monster power but is less able to cope with sustained high G forces than the M4’s S55-series motor.
Daehler (or Dahler) of Switzerland now has a three-pack of custom M2s as showcases of their tuning skills. The standard coupe, an M2 Convertible (!) and now this M2 Clubsport. With the S55, it is the “CS competitionline.”
Parts can be shipped worldwide for local installation, or they will happily sell you a complete vehicle as well. That might be one way to beat the huge M2 waitlists!
BMW M2 by Dähler Design & Technik
The M2-Family «made by dÄHLer» is complete!
Dähler Design & Technik GmbH from Belp near Bern in Switzerland made the dream come true and unveils a complete M2-Family «made by dÄHLer» as we speak. These highly individualized vehicles represent the whole spectrum. This means the individual optimization with single components until the complete vehicle as «dÄHLer competition line» (M2 Coupé and the worldwide first and unique M2 Convertible) or as a flashy M2 Clubsport «dÄHLer race line» for use during track days or clubsport events.
The ultimate M2-vehicles «made by dÄHLer» are available with different performance levels based on the N55-engine or as a highlight with a power-enhanced M4-engine (S55). Of course, with EU-/CH permission (Euro-6-norm) under compliance of the series emission performance.
In order to reach an additional increase of agility, a perfectly aligned clubsport- or performance coil-over suspension system «built by dÄHLer», the well-proven 8-pistons-high-performance-brake-system with massive 400 millimeter brake discs as well as a stainless steel exhaust system – everything «built by dÄHLer» – has been installed.
For all M2-models the wheel «dÄHLer CDC1 (in-house developed and manufactured) in the dimensions 9 x 20 (FA/front axle) and 10,5 x 20 (RA/rear axle) or 9 x 21 (FA/front axle) and 10,5 x 21 (RA/rear axle) are available.
Visually, the M2-Family from Dähler is closely orientated to the series. The aerodynamic – and especially the contact pressure on the front axle – benefits from a decent, but efficient front spoiler lip with lateral flaps. Upon request, Dähler Design & Technik GmbH can mount a rear spoiler. Following the customer’s wish, the interior can receive a makeover with the certain «dÄHLer-Touch».
Finally, the drive-ability decides the supremely individual and technical-harmonious alignment of each vehicle. In addition, the individualized vehicle has to be reliable and verifiable. Because of their decades-long experience, the specialists in Belp near Bern understand the complex interactions of all components very well.
