NEW BMW M2 COUPÉ: ONLY WHEN IT’S ICE AND FREEZING

Spy images from the far north; on a frozen lake in Sweden, the next generation BMW M2 Coupé shines by. The model is still wrapped in a thick camouflage winter coat, so we can’t answer our biggest question: does the M2 have as insane a grille as the new BMW M3/M4?

The current BMW M2 has been on the market since 2016 and has already had a number of updates. The original model had a 3.0-liter six-in-line with one turbo. The N55 block – which is not a BMW M engine – delivers 370bhp and 465Nm of torque. Two years after the introduction of the M2, the sports coupe finally got an M-heart: the S55 six-cylinder with two turbos from the previous generation BMW M3/M4. That brought the power to 410 horsepower. This year the ultimate version of the M2 was added: the M2 CS. It is good for 450 hp and 550 Nm, with which it sprints to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds.

BMW M2 COUPÉ RETAINS ITS TYPICAL M2 LINES

The next generation BMW M2 retains the typical M2 lines: a long nose, a relatively high passenger compartment and a short, severed ass. In the spy photos, the M-exhaust with four pipes is clearly visible. Other M-pulls are the large, perforated brake discs, the subtle trunk spoiler, the M-mirrors and the very slightly widened wheel arches. We expect the M2 to simply have another twinturbo zespitter, probably with at least 410 hp. A manual six-box becomes standard, with a dual-clutch automatic as an option.
