In just a few days the wait will be over when the first journalists will jump behind the wheel of the new BMW 2 Series Coupe. In the mean time, a slightly banged up F22 2 Series was spotted with the aggressive-looking M Sport package and Estoril Blue color.
The right-hand drive model was spotted near the BMW plant in Leipzig.
Despite the damage to the front, the images provide a fairly good impression of the compact class coupe appearance, coming in March 2014. With balanced weight distribution, rear wheel drive and, on request, a six-cylinder under the hood, the BMW 2 Series Coupe promises a lot of fun and a viable alternative to even the 4 Series Coupe.
The vehicle shown here is a BMW 220i Coupe with 184 hp from a turbocharged four-cylinder and a standard consumption of – depending on gear and tires – from 5.7 to 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers. The standard sprint from 0 to 100 is achieved in 7.0 seconds, top speed is at 235 km/h.
With a price of 29,950 euros, the 220i remains the only one of 2 Series below the 30,000 euro mark, until later cheaper and weaker versions will follow. For the launch in March another 184 hp 220d model will be available, and of course the 326 hp M235i flagship.
