If there was any doubt that the BMW M2 is in works, then these latest spy photos will certainly take care of the uncertainty. After years of rumors and contradictory reports, the BMW M2 is finally real. The new “baby-M”, previous one being the 1 Series M Coupe, will go in production in November 2015 with deliveries beginning in early 2016.

It will be positioned above the BMW M235i and below the M3/M4 models, which leaves enough pricing gap for BMW’s marketing efforts.

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.

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 same source reveals that the M2 prototype runs2016 BMW M2 prototype with a four tailpipe exhaust   Spy Photos with both a manual and automatic transmission2016 BMW M2 prototype with a four tailpipe exhaust   Spy Photos.

BMW M2 will most likely have more ponies under the hood2016 BMW M2 prototype with a four tailpipe exhaust   Spy Photos than the M235i (340 hp), so expected anywhere from 360 to 380 ponies, leaving enough space to the 425 hp from the new BMW M32016 BMW M2 prototype with a four tailpipe exhaust   Spy Photos Sedan and M4 Coupe.

Unlike the 1M, the BMW M2 will not be a limited production so expect to see plenty of those units in the hands of a younger demographic.
