It may be pricey, but the new coupe pumps out 405 horsepower.

Sure, you can buy a used BMW M2. But why settle for the less-powerful option when you can pick up the new Competition model? The 405 horsepower (302 kilowatts) coupe borrows the biturbo inline-six from the M3 and M4 and comes paired to a standard six-speed manual gearbox. You can pick one up for as little as $58,900 – but with options on the online configurator, things start to get pricey.

The M2 Competition is now a record-holder:

The first optional feature is the exterior paint job. The M2 Competition comes standard with an Alpine White paint job but offers four optional colors: Black Sapphire, Long Beach Blue, Hockenheim Silver, and the Sunset Orange pictured here. Two wheels options are offered – either 19-inch forged black units or 19-inch silver units with black inserts. But can be had at no extra cost.

In the cabin, black Dakota leather comes standard with either blue or orange stitching. Black high-gloss trim with chrome accents and carbon fiber are both available at no extra cost. In terms of packaging, the $1,200 Executive Package adds features like wireless charging and a WiFi hotspot, speed limit info, adaptive full LED headlights, and automatic high beams.

There aren't a ton of available options, but the ones BMW does offer are pricey. A moonroof is $1,050, the M Driver's Package – which includes a one-day high-performance driving class with an instructor – and another $2,500, and the seven-speed double-clutch transmission is a whopping $2,900. BMW M logo valve stem caps, or BMW roundel valve stem caps, add another $20 onto the final asking price.

With every option box ticked, the BMW M2 Competition tops out at $67,120 (including $995 for destination).
