BMW M2 is scheduled to arrive on the market in 2015. The successor of the limited-edition but very successful 1M is built on the new 2 Series Coupe which arrives in dealerships next year.

Compared to its predecessor, the BMW M2 will undergo a longer development phase. With an aggressive package, the M2 will strongly differentiate itself from the M135i hatch and the M235i Coupe model. 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.

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, Car and Driver says that an upgraded version of the 3.0 liter TwinScroll turbocharged engine might be used with a total output of 360 horsepower.

The M2 will use BMW’s proven compact rear-wheel-drive platform, shared with the current 1-series and similar to that of the 3-series. An all-wheel-drive version of the M2 is possible in theory, but don’t expect one.

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

Rendering artist Jerry Alvarez has put together a new set of renderings that illustrate how the design of the M2 might turn out.

    Dammit! Why won’t BMW give us a compact M sedan?! So annoyed at how they create these beastly 5k lbs M models but will not give us a normal sized sedan (and no the e90 to me was not normal sized either… still way too big to be fun).

    One of the better renderings of future cars. The only thing I would change or at least should be changed are the headlights which won’t look like the F30-style headlights based on the camouflage pics. They won’t look sharp like the render suggests, instead they will look like a deviation of the F20/F21 that is greatly cleaned up – no bug-eyed look.

      What makes you so positive that the M2 headlights wont be like the 2 series headlights, so far every series model and M model both shared the same exact shaped headlight from the 1 series and M model to the X6 and X6M. now if you are talking about the integrated headlight into the grill style, BMW is using that style for all the new models so expect it on the 2 series also.

      • TheBingoBalls

        I said it should look like the 2-Series headlights based on the leaked spy shots which look like it won’t be like the F30 headlights (I’m assuming you haven’t seen the spy shots). Whether it connects to the grille is still questionable but I assume it won’t if it follows the 1-Series hatch. If anything, the shape of the enclosure looks similar to that of the pre-LCI E90.

        You’ll see that it resembles/deviates from the 1-Series hatch headlights more than the F30 because it’s a more rounded enclosure vs. the sharp/flat/angular enclosure of the F30.

        As for the 2M/M2, it’s not going to change from the base model it’s built on. The E92 M3 has the same headlights as the E92 3-Series same with the 1M and E88 1-Series.

          we’ll just have to wait and see shall we.

    I guess M doesn’t stand for MotorSport anymore. Now it stands for $$$Money as BMW slaps it on every platform imaginable.

  • Sir nine

    The Golf R is not even close to being a competitor

    • lol121212

      Golf R is faster

        I don’t think it’s all about speed. The M2 will be an awesome track car.
