Actually the possible model 2016 BMW M2 spied since the end of May 2011. It was confirmed by BMW that the Coupe version of 1-series was 2-series model. BMW are not alone to design this 2016 model of M2. They will be accompanied with F21 platform who also manage the next 2-series line-up. Of course low fuel consumption and sportier designs become the target of BMW for this sport car. Even though the press released of this car will be next year, there are plenty information that can fill our curiousness of 2016 M2. We will summarize all of updates of 2016 BMW M2 spied below.
Under the hood
Based on LeftLaneNews site stated that 2016 BMW M2 spied to use a twin-turbocharged 3.0 Liter straight six engine which is same with M235i powertrain. We believe that it will pump out around 380 to 400 horsepower. If we counted the 0-60 mph time, it approached at 4.7 seconds and 155 mph of top speed.
This is enough for $55,000 price of sports car. BMW should use carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics in order to increase the speed because their main rival such as Mercedes CLA45 has also this speed value. BMW still has enough time to revise their four door coupe for next year. The good news for us is that it will come with manual transmissions only.
The designs of 2016 M2 looked boring because there are still 1-series elements. This four-door coupe has orange color as we can see in spy’s photos. For the cabin, higher-quality of seats should be done by BMW and standard features which always included in their sports car. We can predict that this car will appear in Detroit Auto Show for January 2015. We know you are patient to wait this luxurious design of M2.
