The upcoming BMW M2 was spotted during testing in Munich. Just like the previously spotted prototypes, this orange painted M2 has yet to include the quad-tips exhaust system and still features the two tailpipes seen on the M235i.

Just last month, the first F87 BMW M2 prototype was spotted during a testing session and we had the chance to see, despite the light camouflage, some of the design features, starting with the aggressive front fascia and the rear spoiler and the signature M four-exhaust pipes. Kinda what BMW has previewed with their M235i Racing car.

BMW M2 is expected to adopt much of the new chassis technology found in the M3 and M4, including an electronically controlled limited slip rear differential dubbed Active M Differential.

It was also revealed last month that a BMW M2 prototype is currently running under the hood an updated version of the N55 TwinPower 3.0 liter engine (N55B30T0).

    the M235i does NOT have 340hp as you state….it has 320 (or 322?). The 1M had 335-340hp. The M2 will be a cool car…..but it will never be as special as the 1M!

    Shame they’re not giving it a real M engine. Think it looks great but not happy that they’re talking about a number below 400 HP.
