BMW M2

Another day, another report of a new model in the BMW M stable. Once again, it’s the much hoped-for M2 Coupe.

The subject of rumours since the 2 Series Coupe first appeared, the M2 would enter as the smallest BMW M offering, slotting in above the existing M235i model.

This week, enthusiast site BimmerPost reports that “multiple inside sources” - all anonymous - have confirmed a production schedule for the new flagship model.

The report claims that a late 2015 or early 2016 debut is planned, meaning that we should soon see heavily camouflaged and widened 2 Series coupes testing on European roads.

It is believed that the M2 will be powered by the familiar turbocharged N55 inline-six engine, chosen over a lighter four-cylinder engine.

With the N55 beating away under its long bonnet, the M2 will reportedly deliver between 270 and 280kW, making it around 30 to 40kW more powerful than the current M235i.

The M2 would likely also benefit from a hugely overhauled and lighter chassis, conceivably cutting the coupe’s 0-100km/h acceleration time to the low four-second region - or even lower.

The so-called M2’s predecessor, the 1 Series M Coupe, produced 250kW and boasted a 0-100km/h of 4.9 seconds - 0.1 seconds slower than the M235i.

The report adds that the new model is known internally as ‘pyrat2’ - following in the footsteps of the 1 M’s project name, ‘pyrat’.

The M2 is expected to carry the model code ‘F87’, and unlike the 1 M, the new model is expected to get a full production run.

If these details are accurate, expect more information to surface in the coming months.
