BMW's 2 Series is just around the corner, and to alert us to its impending arrival BMW's hype machine has spat out this brief teaser video.
You'll only catch a fleeting glimpse of a 2 Series coupe executing a dirt powerslide, but the message is clear - two doors, rear-wheel drive.
What else do we know about the 2? Well, in BMW's revised nomenclature system the 2 replaces the 1 Series Coupe and Convertible, and it's built on the same underpinnings as the 1 Series hatch.
Besides the usual 1.6 litre turbo petrol and 2.0 diesel variants, there will be a high-performance M235i with approximately 240kW from a turbocharged 3.0 litre inline six. How fast? Around 4.8 seconds to 100km/h, according to recent reports.
