Another prototype of the upcoming BMW M2 has been caught on camera recently.
There is no surprise anymore that BMW is working on a high-end version of the current 2-Series Coupe, a real M2, since spy photos, videos and reports with such a car have been around for quite a few months now. The clip posted below is showing us a prototype of the upcoming model wearing some light camouflage on its body. We can notice the updated body kit and the quad exhaust system at the rear which are good indicators that this is nothing else than the future M2.
The BMW M2 will be positioned above the current range-topping model, the M235i Coupe, and it is believed to come with the 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine, which is capable of producing a total of 370 HP (272 kW) and a peak torque of 465 Nm (342 lb-ft). These figures haven’t been confirmed at this time but rumor has it that the model will also use the same brakes as its larger brother, the M3, and power will be sent to the rear-wheel drive through a 6-speed manual transmission. An automatic option is expected to be added too. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the M2 should need about 4.4 seconds and top speed will be electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). The model should be unveiled this September, during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
