Along with the photos leak this morning, AutoExpress UK also revealed the pricing for the BMW M2 in the UK: £44,070 pounds for the manual and £46,575 for the 7-speed M DCT. The number of units available for the UK market is 500 – it remains unclear whether production will continue in 2017. US pricing will be announced at a later date, but latest rumors put the MSRP at $51,000 for the manual.

The M2 gets a turbo 3.0-liter inline six turned up to 370 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque. An additional 25 lb-ft of torque comes from an overboost function. The gearboxes, brakes, front and rear axles, crankshaft and pistons come from the M4.

The magazine says the M2 is 35 kilograms lighter than the M235i. All of that power allows the M2, with the optional M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) in place and Launch Control activated, to sprint from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds (4.5 s with the six-speed manual gearbox).

We’re sitting on a lot more details around the BMW M2, but unfortunately the press embargo has not been lifted yet – despite the leaks. Check back on BMWBLOG for full details and an extensive gallery of pictures on the latest M car.

    Why is BMW limiting the amount of units? Dealers will definitely have the upper hand on this car. I might just get the TTS. Tired of BMW’s BS.

    • Matt Stokes says:

      Limited supply might help to maintain the value proposition, given the performance increase over the M235i might not be that big. Limited runs (in limited colours) also may well help the logistics of producing what is always likely to be a low volume car, at a sensible price point – as well as probably front-loading the order book, as people may rush to place orders for fear of missing out.

    • Senne says:

      Limiting the amount of units makes it rare and therefore it’s a good investment as it will be worth more in say 5 years! Just like the BMW 1M! Don’t buy the TTS, you’ll regret it. The M2 is superior in every single way!!

    This car won’t be available past 6 months.
