Currently in pre-FEP (pre Final Evaluation Phase), the M2 sports the typical BMW camouflage that hides some if its final design cues. The M2 prototype is also starting to add the final components to the car and design, starting with M brakes, flared fenders, four-tailpipe exhaust and aggressive front fascia.
The BMW M2 Facebook Page has just put together a comparison of the 1M prototype side-by-side with the M2 test mule. The developmental comparison shows the two cars from different angles and gives us an idea what to expect.
While the 1M develops 340 horsepower from a 3.0 liter TwinTurbo engine, the M2 is rumored to deliver 360 to 380 horsepower from an updated version of the N55 TwinPower 3.0 liter engine (N55B30T0). Compared to the 1M, the M2 will also add a DCT option aside from the six-speed manual.
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.
