[VIDEO] BMW 2-Series Coupe gets compared with the 2002 image

BMW has recently released a new promotional video with the 2-Series Coupe, which is showing the model in a whole new light.

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has managed to release a new video with the 2-Series Coupe which is concentrating on forming a link between this model and the iconic 2002. The company seems fully aware that the 2002 was replaced by the 3-Series back in the mid 1970s but it wants to create a bridge between the iconic ride and the newly unveiled 2-Series Coupe. The video posted below may stand proof that it did, but do BMW fanatics think?

The BMW 2-Series Coupe has been officially unveiled a few months ago and the cheapest version of the model, the 228i Coupe, is already available for order in the United States, from 32,100 USD. The top of the line variant, the M235i Coupe, can be yours over-seas from 43,100 USD. This variant is coming with a 3.0 liter straight six-cylinder turbocharged engine under its hood. The unit is good for 332 HP (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is made in 4.8 seconds with the automatic and 4.6 seconds with the manual transmission.
