BMW’s newest M family member, the M2 coupe, has been spied in Germany wearing medium camouflage ahead of its official unveiling.
An October unveiling was predicted earlier this year, and that’s exactly what has happened – albeit not quite as BMW intended.
Instead, the German carmaker kicked off a teaser campaign last week featuring little more than the ‘M’ badge and a roadway computer graphic.
The spy pics, posted by enthusiast site BMW Blog, reveal most of the add-ons that an M customer would expect including large, thin-spoke alloy wheels wearing low-profile tyres behind which enormous brake rotors can be seen (with blue brake callipers).
A slightly more aggressive air-intake can be seen at the front, while the rear gets a quad-tip exhaust system. The paint finish seen in the pics is Long Beach Blue.
A 3.0 litre turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine capable of somewhere between 270kW and 280kW with torque somewhere between 465Nm up to 500Nm with a possible overboost function is expected to provide motivation to the back tyres.
The 0-100 km/h time is predicted at around 4.5 seconds, with drive channelled via a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
The official M2 unveiling is scheduled to take place midway through this month - stay tuned to TMR for more.
