This matte green BMW M2 was spotted in Netherlands and for the first time we’re seeing a different color than the standard ones offered by BMW. The new BMW M2 is available in four exterior paint finishes – Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey. Just like the 1M, the new M2 cannot be ordered from the factory in any other color, so even the pricey BMW Individual offerings are out of the question. The lack of a large color palette will open the door for aftermarket companies who are likely to either paint their M2 projects cars in different colors, or the least, wrap them up in vinyl.
Standard in the U.S. will be the Alpine White color, while the other three metallic paints – Sapphire Black, Long Beach Blue and Mineral Grey – will be an additional $550. Dakota leather with blue stitching is the only interior choice.
Also in the US, an Executive Package – comprising of heated steering wheel, rear view camera, rear park distance control, automatic high beams, active driving assistant and speed limit info – is offered for $1,250. With the six-speed manual being standard, the dual-clutch transmission becomes an option and not a cheap one – $2,900.
The 2016 BMW M2 will be available at authorized BMW centers starting at $51,700 plus Destination and Handling starting in April 2016.Autojunk]
