The new BMW M2 can now be admired at the BMW Welt, in the heart of Munich. The beautiful BMW landmark is hosting a Long Beach Blue M2 placed in the M exhibit next to an M4 Coupe in Austin Yellow.
BMW’s first M2 Coupe made its world debut two weeks ago at the Detroit Auto Show and has won plenty of accolades from journalists around the world.
BMW M2 features a 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine produces 365 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque, catapulting the high performance vehicle from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
The new BMW M2 can be ordered as an option with the latest generation of the seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmissions (M DCT with Drivelogic). This system, which effectively combines two gearboxes, each with its own clutch, is specially designed to work with the customary engine dynamics of M cars and the engine’s high torque and output.
A six-speed manual is standard.
The 2016 BMW M2 will be available at authorized U.S. BMW centers starting at $51,700 plus Destination and Handling starting in April 2016.
