When BMW unveiled the new M2 it also broke the heart of many enthusiasts by offering only four exterior colors – Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey. None of those colors are specific to the M2 as Valencia Orange was for the 1M – at least for a short period of time – and BMW is also unlikely to offer a BMW Individual program for the compact coupe, so that will leave room for some aftermarket vinyl wraps. Owners with deeper pockets can always resort to aftermarket paint jobs that will give their cars a special look.
The rendering below showcases what one of those paint jobs could be – Frozen White. The Individual Color was previously seen on other BMWs and it’s regarded as one of the nicest and most appealing paint jobs for a sporty car.
The same image highlights the famous ///M stripes and their potential use on the exterior design. At market launch, BMW’s aftermarket division will offer a stripes package which will likely sell in the hundreds of dollars. To not take away from the beautiful and sporty design, the computer generated image places the stripes on the air curtains and across the L-shaped line running across the sides of the car which further emphasizes and – some may say – enhances the flared fenders.
The 2016 BMW M2 will be available at authorized U.S. BMW centers starting at $51,700 plus Destination and Handling starting in April 2016.
