BMW’s anticipated M2 hero is yet to be confirmed, but as our recent spy photos reveal, that confirmation may be nothing more than a formality.

Also a hot topic is that of the new high-performance coupe’s power figures, with many early reports pointing to numbers between 270 and 280kW.

A new report this week with respected German mag Auto Bild adds credence to those whispers, claiming to have confirmed a 374hp (279kW) figure.

That mighty big number, along with a nearly M4-matching 520Nm of torque, is expected to come from an updated version of BMW’s N55 ‘TwinPower’ 3.0 litre petrol six.

Those figures will make the M2 around 40kW more powerful than the range’s current hero, the already impressive M235i.

It would also mark a compelling boost over the previous line’s champion, the 250kW 1 Series M Coupe.

The magazine adds that BMW will again satisfy rowing fans by offering a six-speed manual alongside the familiar seven-speed dual-clutch auto.

For now, we wait on BMW’s leisure, but expect the M2 to make an official appearance sometime in the next year.
