RKP’s mission as a designer of Carbon Fiber exterior components has always included bringing the unobtainable to M owners. Unique RKP designs, BMW Motorsport parts, and other rare items have been a staple of RKP’s business model.
For this reason, the RKP program for the M2 had to be truly special, and the application of RKP’s design philosophy started at the RKP M2 Carbon Fiber roof. Choosing the design for the RKP roof was simple, when keeping in mind RKP’s drive to achieve the unattainable. The designers at RKP knew that they couldn’t simply produce a flat roof surface for a car with the sporting character of the M2. Instead, the F82 M4 Carbon Fiber roof was laser scanned and converted to a solid CAD model. After the M4 roof shape was analyzed and digitally measured, the surface was re-designed and modified to fit the M2’s unique body shape and proportions. All ratios were carefully evaluated, giving RKP a roof panel that is reminiscent of the M4’s roof, but specifically sized for the M2.
The RKP M2 roof is constructed from 100% hand laid carbon fiber and weighs a scant 7.5lbs. The M2 Carbon Fiber roof is a full replacement panel, completely removing the factory metal roof, allowing M2 owners to enjoy the reduced weight and increased stiffness of a Carbon Fiber panel, while also providing the M2 with the M4’s unique roof shape.
OE BMW: 18.5lbs RKP: 7.5lbs The RKP roof therefore yields a 60% weight savings over the factory BMW roof panel, providing a reduction in weight in the most critical area of the car.
