In the four short years of BMW M Coupe production, there were essentially 3 different versions produced (6 if you count right hand drive and differentiate the European S54). The first and most common is the North American S52-engined car. Produced in 1999 and 2000, these cars produce 240hp and 236 lb/ft of torque. This is the same engine as found in North American versions of the 1996-1999 E36 M3. Europeans – as they did with their version of the E36 M3 – were offered the 321hp, 258 lb/ft S50 engine. For 2001 and 2002, both North America and Europe received the 315hp S54 engine from the 2001-2006 E46 M3.
