UNDER THE SKIN
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.
