New BMW M2 Teased Ahead Of Expected Debut On October 11 – CarScoops

September 6, 2022 by No Comments

BMW has released a new teaser for the second-generation M2 ahead of its expected debut on October 11.

Our spy photographers have snapped a multitude of M2s testing in recent months and the car featured in this teaser is one of those camouflaged prototypes. However, this doesn’t appear to be an entry-level version of the sports car.

As expected, BMW looks to have developed a series of M Performance Parts for the car and this prototype is rocking some of them. The most obvious accessory fitted is the large fixed rear wing that will help to ensure the car cannot be mistaken for a standard 2-Series Coupe. In addition, we can see that this prototype has a similar stacked central quad exhaust system as is available for the M4 through the M Performance Parts division. While it looks a little too ‘aftermarket’ for our tastes, it’s certainly striking.

Beyond its looks, the new BMW M2 is expected to feature the same 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six as the M3, albeit detuned to around the 450 hp mark. Customers will likely be given the choice between a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission with power sent through the rear wheels. An xDrive all-wheel drive system won’t be available at launch but could be added to the range at a later date.

BMW Blog understands that the new M2 will be available in a host of different colors, including Zandvoort Blue, Toronto Red, Brooklyn Gray, and Black Sapphire. A number of BMW Individual colors should also be available.

The original M2 remains one of the finest sports cars released in the last decade so the pressure will be on BMW to ensure that the new model is even better.
