The BMW M2 is the latest sports coupe from the German-automobile company and after two years of anticipation, the M2 is here to satisfy driving enthusiasts with its top-notch performance.
The car just looks absolutely stunning. Every man driving one of these will be sure to garner lots of looks and make even those with a discerning taste in cars, turn their head. However, the M2's design is just a bonus as its performance is the best feature it has.
According to Jalopnik, the BMW M2 has the same engine as the M235i, which is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine that produces 370 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque. As for the gearboxes, brakes, front and rear axles, crankshaft and pistons, it came from the M4 and M3 with an additional water cooler to keep things, well...cool.
In a similar report by Mashable, the M2 has two options for its transmission. Buyers can either choose from a standard 6-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The standard manual tranny can make the car go 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 seconds while the DCT can do the same in just 4.2 seconds. Either way, it's blazingly fast and to be honest, you'll barely feel the difference.
As reported by Car and Driver, the M2 features an aggressive styling. With its unique front end, large air intakes, a rear spoiler, four exhaust pipes, this car really sets apart from its M235i sibling. It will also be available in four colors namely, Long Beach Blue metallic, Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic and Mineral Grey metallic.
And despite those extra additions to the car, the BMW M2 is still 78 pounds lighter compared to the M235i,
For those eager to drive one, we ask you to hold on for a while as BMW has yet to announce the official pricing for the M2.
