The first official look at BMW’s high-powered compact coupe could come in October with a staged online expose.

That means no showing at the coming Frankfurt Motor Show, instead leaving the first in-the-metal impressions until November’s LA Auto Show, or possibly January’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit, according to BMW blog.

Before that, a teaser campaign for the new model is set to start within the next few weeks. An on-sale date overseas is not expected until March or April next year.

While BMW is yet to reveal any official about the car, the M2 is expected to be powered by a detuned version of the 3.0 litre turbocharged inline six used in the larger M3 and M4.

An expected power output of between 270kW and 280kW should position the M2 comfortably between the 240kW M235i and the 317kW on offer in the M3 and M4.

Estimates on torque output vary from 465Nm to a more M4-like 520Nm. The 0-100km/h sprint should be dispatched in an estimated 4.5 seconds.

A six speed manual is likely to be the default transmission, but an optional seven-speed dual-clutch auto will be offered as well.

While the bodywork has so far remained cloaked in camouflage, the M2 will sport fatter front a rear guards to house a more aggressive wheel and tyre package, sitting over a beefier brake setup.

The M235i Racing provides a pretty strong hint at what to expect.

TMR will have more info in the M2 once BMW begins its information roll-out.
