The upcoming BMW M2 was spotted at the BMW Headquarters in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. The M2 prototype features the Long Beach Blue color and it’s likely driven by one of the U.S. M product managers. Left out in the open, the M2 found a partner quickly – a beautiful E46 M3.
The photo gallery below not only allows us to see the M2 from up-close but to also see its proportions compared to the iconic E46 M3. Its aggressive wheel arches, massive front air dams and rear diffuser give the M2 a very aggressive and exciting look. The low front apron features large air intakes and the muscular flanks sport the characteristic M gills.
19-inch aluminum wheels in familiar M double-spoke design make sure the M2 stays planted on the road and track.
The rear diffuser and the small trunk spoiler emphasize the sportiness of first generation M2.
BMW only offers one trim and leather option – black Dakota leather with blue contrast stitching and an M logo in the backrests. The trim strip is made of porous carbon fiber while the Alcantara for the door cards and parking brake lever gaiter offer some extra sportiness.
The BMW M2 Coupe will celebrate its market debut in April 2016 and will be sold in Germany at prices starting at 56,700 euros. In the U.S., the M2 is rumored to be priced at around $51,000.
