German media, citing unnamed BMW sources, are reporting on the price of the upcoming BMW M2. According to AutoBild, the sporty and compact M2 Coupe will start at 54,000 Euros in Germany, about 10,000 Euros more than the M235i Coupe. An M4 is almost 20,000 euros more expensive. The DCT version of the M2 would add at least 2,000 Euros to the base price.
If the 54,000 Euros MSRP will stand, a well-equipped M2 would easily jump over the 60k mark.
Applying the same formula here in the U.S., the base M2 with manual is expected to start in the low to mid $50k.
Our source says that while the M2 won’t be as limited as the 1M, the global production is likely to be around 10,000 units. The source won’t comment on the possibility of an M2 CSL.
The M2 is rumored to use an updated N55 engine with 365 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque with 25 lb-ft of torque available as overboost. The M limited-slip differential on the rear axle, the suspension and brakes are adopted almost unchanged from the M3/M4, giving the M2 unrivaled dynamics in its class.
Production begins in November with first units delivered in January 2016.
