The new BMW M2 is available in four exterior paint finishes – Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey. The show color is the Long Beach Blue and one we will see in all the marketing materials moving forward, but many believe the M2 might look best in a darker shade, like Mineral Grey.

This M2 was spotted in Germany and gives us a closer look at the dark grey paint.

A source familiar with the BMW production process says the limitation of colors might have to do with the fact that it’s being built at the Leipzig facility. This plant only has a small paint booth, with maybe 8-12 colors, and have numerous car models produced in the plant so it’s possible the Leipzig is a little tight on colors. The Long Beach Blue is the only new color of the four.

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.
