The 2016 BMW M2 coupe will arrive in early 2016, but prototypes are already ready for the test ride. Here you can see some spy shots of the upcoming model. Keep reading to learn some new details regarding its engine and specs.
2016 BMW M2 Exterior and Interior
The test model, which was spotted and photographed, and eventually posted on the TopSpeed, can be seen below. You will notice that it is not whole covered in camouflage, allowing us to easily observe all the details.
Both front and rear end, doors, fenders and bumpers are all covered in camouflage, but still allowing us to notice those air intakes, familiar BMW grille, lights, rear bumper, four exhaust tips and other details. The overall body of the 2016 BMW M2 is nicely sculpted, making it as elegant as ever. There are also new wheels wrapped in performance tires.
Unfortunately, there are no photos nor any details on the interior of the upcoming 2016 BMW M2. However, I think the dashboard and the whole cabin might be similar to the 2015 BMW 2 Series Coupe. You can see its interior spy shot below.
New BMW M2 Engine and Performance
According to the latest reports, the new 2016 BMW M2 coupe will come with a front-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter engine with six cylinders (I-6) that will be able to deliver up to 400 horsepower. All this power will allow the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, while the top speed is supposedly 155 mph. This power unit will allegedly be paired with a DCT semi-automatic transmission. The car’s fuel consumption will also be improved.
2016 BMW M2 Release Date and Price
If reports regarding the release date are to be believed, the new M2 is set to arrive in early 2016, however it will make a debut during 2015 at some of the major auto shows. Its expected price tag is about $55,000 for the base model with standard equipment.
