BMW has today unveiled the direct successor of the highly desirable 1 Series M Coupe, the M2. The 6-cylinder under the hood is in keeping with the finest M tradition, ensuring strong driving dynamics on the trace track with exceptional power delivery and the signature driving behavior thanks to rear-wheel drive agility and lightweight aluminum M Sport suspension. The innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology ensures outstanding torque available across a wide rev band with rapid responses and excellent efficiency, raising the pulse with its distinctive engine soundtrack.

The sporty coupe is able to lap the famous Nurburgring circuit in 7:58 minutes, making it 7 seconds faster than the previous-gen M3 and significantly faster than its predecessor - the 1M Coupe with its 8:12 minutes.

The all-new BMW M2 will be available at authorized BMW centers with a limited range of options starting in spring of 2016. Prince will be disclosed closer to market launch.

M2's Exterior Design

The successor to the BMW 1 Series M Coupe showcases its impressive on-the-road presence from every angle. Its M-specific exterior features send out a whole-hearted statement of dynamics and agility, promising both a superior performance on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife and convincing abilities on urban roads. In the grand tradition of BMW sport coupes, the all-new BMW M2 contains stylistic references to highlights from its forebears in BMW's motor sport back-catalogue - such as the BMW 2002 turbo and legendary BMW 3.0 CSL.

From the side the 2016 BMW M2 is immediately identifiable as a fully-fledged member of the BMW M family. Compact dimensions and hallmark BMW proportions - i.e. a short front overhang, sweeping hood, long wheelbase and set-back greenhouse with classic BMW Hofmeister kink - are the starting point, with signature M design elements strengthening the dynamic expression.

The broad rear end of the 2016 BMW M2 highlights its firm grip on the asphalt, a quality further reinforced by the horizontal lines in the trunk lid and rear apron. The M rear spoiler on the trunk lid also accentuates the elevated dynamic aspirations of the all-new BMW M2.

The looks of the rear end are rounded off by another classical BMW M feature. The diffuser integrated into the rear apron is a clear reference to the racing abilities of the all-new BMW M2 and offers a nod to its optimized aerodynamics. Likewise integrated into the rear apron are the familiar quartet of hallmark BMW M exhaust tailpipes in high-gloss chrome, which draw renewed attention to the low visual center of gravity and point clearly to the dynamic performance of the all-new BMW M2.

The 2016 BMW M2 is available in four exterior paint finishes: Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire metallic and Mineral Grey metallic.
