This latest spy video unveils the full design of the BMW M2 front bumper. The new footage from Germany reveals the sculpted and aggressive front-end, including the large air intakes and the air breathers. The video also reveals that the fuel tank cover is round and not square like on the M235i and the 19 inch wheels are nearly identical with the ones found on the M4 Coupe.
Official ordering guides give the customers an option of four colors: Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey colors, three out of four colors planned at launch time – Long Beach Blue is the other one.
The M2 uses an updated N55 engine with 365 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque with 25 lb-ft of torque available as overboost. While the updated N55 is based on the same engine found in the M235i, our source says it will have some components from the new S55 unit. Yet the engine code will still be labeled as N55. The engine will feature an overboost function just like the 1M, good for 25 lb-ft of torque.
The unveil won’t take place at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but the M2 is still likely to be unveiled online in the next few weeks.
