Just last month, the first F87 BMW M2 prototype was spotted during a testing session and we had the chance to see, despite the light camouflage, some of the design features, starting with the aggressive front fascia and the rear spoiler and the signature M four-exhaust pipes.
BMW M2 is expected to adopt much of the new chassis technology found in the M3 and M4, including an electronically controlled limited slip rear differential dubbed Active M Differential.
It was also revealed last month that a BMW M2 prototype is currently running under the hood an updated version of the N55 TwinPower 3.0 liter engine (N55B30T0). The same source reveals that the M2 prototype runs with both a manual and automatic transmission.
BMW M2 will deliver 360 horsepower, leaving enough space to the 425 hp from the new BMW M3.
The new “baby-M” will go on sale in Spring 2016 with production beginning November 2015.
