BMW M2 is without a question the car the entire BMW community is waiting for. The spiritual successor to the original “baby-M” will be unveiled this summer, followed by production in November.
The rumors around the M2 are at their highest peak, creating lots of buzz around the compact sports coupe. Over the last few months, the BMW community has debated over the engine found under the hood of the new “baby-M.” We have seen reports indicating an updated version of the N55 TwinScroll being used, as well as a detuned S55 unit or even a new “S” engine based on the equally new B58 3.0 liter.
It turns out BMW will indeed use an updated N55 engine with an output between 360 and 370 horsepower. While the updated N55 is based on the same engine found in the M235i, sources close to the brand say the engine will have some components from the new S55 unit.
These latest renderings build upon the recently spied M2 prototypes highlighting the large air intakes and sporty bumper, and the impressive fender flares. The full LED headlights and taillights will give the car some cool graphics.
BMW is expected to unveil the F87 M2 this summer, followed by production in November 2015 and first deliveries in Spring 2016.
