WHAT IS IT? BMW M2

WHY THE FUSS? Fi­nally a full-strength M baby

WHEN’S IT HERE? Next year

HOW MUCH? About $100,000

Af­ter dozens of de­nials, here is the proof that BMW is fi­nal­is­ing de­vel­op­ment of an M2 coupe. The step up from the M235i is com­ing late next year, with a full-on con­ver­sion in­clud­ing wider rear body bits and a tur­bocharged in­line six­cylin­der en­gine. Carparazzi caught this early pro­to­type — it’s miss­ing the ex­tra M nose and some pan­els — dur­ing test­ing at the Nur­bur­gring, where en­gi­neers are fo­cus­ing on the 285kW en­gine.
