The new BMW M2 has just been leaked by Auto Express UK. According to Auto Express, 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. It comes standard with a manual transmission, while a 7-speed DCT is optional.

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).

Unfortunately, we still can’t release the full details due to an embargo, so stay tuned, we have much more to unveil.
