The folks over at TopSpeed put together another rendering of the BMW M2.

BMW plans to launch the successor of the limited-edition 1M in 2015 and compared to the somewhat rushed 1M project, the BMW M2 will undergo a longer development phase. To clearly set a line between the M135i and a fully M-developed model, the M2 will sport an aggressive package and M-engineered underpinnings. The M2 is said to sport an unique fascia with large air intakes, wider track and wider rear fenders, as well as a rear spoiler and the signature M four-exhaust pipes.

Furthermore, the M2 will be available only in coupe form with no plans for another body style. At least in the initial phase. Design wise, the M2 will be built atop the upcoming 2 Series Coupe.

Power will be sent to the wheels via the rear-wheel drive platform. Even though in the past we have heard of rumors around a four-cylinder banger powering the M2, latest rumors point to an upgraded version of the 3.0 liter TwinScroll turbocharged engine might be used with a total output of 360 horsepower.

It will be mated to a six-speed manual, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic as a possible option. Same source says that a 0-to-60 sprint should take around 4.5 seconds.

BMW M2 will compete against the Audi RS3, Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and Volkswagen Golf R.

    Aside from the front end, it doesn’t look that much different from the current 3-Series E92 coupe.
