BMW Sold 12K M2 Coupe In 2017, Celebrates With A Special Black Shadow Edition

BMW is particularly proud of the BMW M2 last year. In all, the German automaker said it has pushed out 12,000 units all over the world. Pardon me for my ignorance, but 12,000 is not a lot, right?

The Edition Black Shadow is supposed to emphasize “the compact high-powered sports car’s performance characteristics with precisely harmonized design features.” How so? I have absolutely no idea.

Adoration for cars is beyond aesthetic. A true car lover will learn to adore the motor as much as the power it pumps out.

This is the very reason why when I saw the press text from BMW, detailing the heart of the BMW M8 GTE, I get all wet with excitement and I felt compelled to share it with you folks.
