BMW M2 – report says it will come with 374 HP image

The BMW M2 is believed to offer as much as 374 HP (279 kW) once it will be ready for its future customers.

The development of a BMW M2 is not new to anyone who is reading the automotive news but it seems that the model in question will be more powerful than initially believed. According to the guys from Auto Bild, the model in question will be a true successor of the loved 1M Coupe, which has left the production line after approximately 5,000 units have been put together.

The BMW M2 will be taking its power from a 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo N55 engine, which will be uprated. This will be producing a total output of 374 HP (279 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed manual transmission or to an optional 7-speed automatic dual clutch M DCT. The prices for the model will be more expensive than the current’s M235i Coupe which, in Germany, kicks in at 43,750 euros. The BMW M2 is believed to go official in the fourth quarter of 2015. More details on it are limited for the moment.
