The first real life photos of a BMW M2 in Alpine White come from Germany. A member of the m-forum.de spotted the M2 in one of the four colors offered by BMW for the compact coupe.

The new BMW M2 is available in four exterior paint finishes – Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey. The cabin is fitted with a host of BMW M-specific equipment details – Sports seats, in black Dakota leather with blue contrast stitching and an M logo in the backrests, an M footrest and knee pad on the center console and instruments with BMW M2-specific dials and needles.

Spotted here are also a different set of wheels, likely a winter setup for Germany. The stock car comes with aluminum wheels and mixed-size tires. The lightweight 19-inch forged wheels (front axle: 9J x 19, rear axle 10J x 19) substantially reduce rotating and unsprung masses. Together with the exclusive 19-inch Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (front axle: 245/35 ZR 19, rear axle: 265/35 ZR 19), they ensure proper grip on the track and great comfort on the road.

The M2 pricing for the German market is 56,700 euros for the six-speed manual transmission and 60,600 euros for the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Under the hood, the M2 uses a brand-new six-cylinder in-line engine, with M TwinPower Turbo technology and three-liter displacement, develops 272 kW/370 hp with peak torque of 465 Nm / 343 lb-ft. (Combined fuel consumption, with six-speed manual gearbox: 8.5 l/100 km [33.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 199 g/km; with optional M Double Clutch transmission [M DCT]: 7.9 l/100 km [35.8 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 185 g/km).

All of that tech and 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). The top speed of the new BMW M2 is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph). If the M Driver’s Package – which includes a BMW Driving Experience voucher for a track training course – is specified, this cut-off point doesn’t arrive until 270 km/h (168 mph).

    Hmmm, wanted to see one in the white, now in those photos it does not look anything special.
    tbh, it just looks like the M235i

    Very nice, but the front aero is overdone… Looks like it’s more for style than function.
