The BMW M2 only gets four choices of colors, one choice of interior color – Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire and Mineral Grey – one choice of wheels and one choice of trim, as of now. 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.
There is actually quite a long list of other options, but many of them seem as if they will be standard and the rest will likely be joined together as part of available packages
The cabin is fitted with a host of BMW M-specific equipment details – Sports seats, in black Dakota leather with blue contrast stitching and an M logo in the backrests, an M footrest and knee pad on the center console and instruments with BMW M2-specific dials and needles.
In standard form, the M2 comes with lightweight 19-inch forged wheels (front axle: 9J x 19, rear axle 10J x 19), but this prototype sports winter tires and 18-inch wheels.
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.
