"Demand for the BMW M2 has been strong from the outset,” said BMW Group Australia CEO Marc Werner.

"From an initial 300-unit Australia allocation, we were successful in securing 400 2016-build M2s, which were quickly snapped up.

"This presented us with a strong base to ask for further supply increases to match the sustained demand.”

Our test drive last year lauded the M2 as one of the best cars to wear the BMW badge.

According to BMW, June year-to-date figures have cemented the BMW M2 at the top of the tree for the famous BMW M brand, achieving 671 sales since its Australian introduction.
