SPYSHOTS: 2016 BMW M2 Has Its Camo Digitally RemovedAuto News
The BMW M2 is not due to make its debut anytime soon but prototypes of the more powerful 2 Series Coupe have been sighted and snapped. Here’s a series of photos from Bimmerpost that shows a camouflaged M2 but through the magic of image manipulation (aka Photoshop), we now get a pretty accurate indication of what the final product may look like sans disguise.
Keep in mind though that these are merely renderings and don’t necessarily reflect what the BMW M2 will look like although it does look mighty fine here. As you’d expect, the M2 gains an aggressively-styled body kit with large air intakes, side gills, rear vents, and four exhaust tips.
The source also say that under the hood of the M2 is BMW’s turbocharged inline six N55 engine, developing 365hp and 465Nm of torque. With the overboost features, an additional 35Nm of torque is available in the low to mid-range rpm as well. Other details include the transmission options which include a six-speed manual as standard or seven-speed M-DCT as an option.
In the past, BMW created the 1M Coupe which received glowing reviews, where Jeremy Clarkson called it the most fun car of the year in 2011. This means that the Bavarian carmaker will certainly be doing their absolute best to make sure its successor lives up to those expectations.
