The folks over at have some new real life photos of the BMW M2 in two of the four launch colors – Mineral Grey and Sapphire Black. The upcoming BMW M2 is probably the most hotly anticipated BMW that we can remember. We can’t think of another Bimmer that had as much buzz generated before its release than the M2. Hence why every photo and video creates an enormous amount of buzz.

There’s good reason for this of course, the M2 is the spiritual successor to the transcendent 1 Series M and is probably the most perfect recipe for an M car since the E46 M3.

Apparently, the only colors to be offered are, the official launch color, Long Beach Blue, Alpine White, Mineral Grey and Sapphire Black. These colors pretty much color the bases for what an M car should have, but there are some suspicious missing colors. There’s always at least one interesting red or yellow color, making it sad that there won’t be one for the M2, but at least there’s the beautiful Long Beach Blue.

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.


BMW will debut the new M2 in two weeks time at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, followed shortly by the international media launch. The market launch was set for April.
