- New M2 to use the M4's 3.0-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine
- Will get a carbon fibre roof as standard to save weight
- Performance claimed to be on par with the outgoing M2 CS
BMW has revealed that the new M2 will make its global debut in October this year with a launch in global markets planned for April 2023. As per reports, the new M2 will be BMW's last non-hybrid M model with BMW confirming that it will use the S58 in-line six-cylinder engine from the current M3 and M4. BMW claims that the new M2 will offer performance similar to the outgoing M2 CS and that it “allows the driver to experience that pure racetrack feeling in any conditions – even at the limit.”
Alongside the details, BMW shared images of the pre-production M2 test mule revealing some of the upcoming performance model's styling details. The new M2 will miss out on the oversized BMW grille seen on the likes of its larger siblings the M3 and M4. In line with other BMW M cars the rear will feature a quad exhaust with a subtle spoiler on the boot lid.
Reports suggest that the M2 will also be notably wider than its 2 Series stablemates replete with a wider track, M-specific suspension set-up and larger wheels. The new M2 will also be a rear-wheel-drive-only coupe as its predecessor. BMW has confirmed that the new M2 will get a carbon fibre roof as standard to keep weight in check.
Images of the pre-production mule's interior reveal a cabin in line with other newer BMW's with a freestanding curved panel sitting atop the dashboard housing the digital instrument panel and central touchscreen, the familiar BMW M steering and rotary iDrive controller on the centre console behind the gear lever. BMW has also confirmed M-specific graphics for the display along with a ‘track' drive mode. The new M2 will get BMW M sports seats as standard with buyers also set to get the option to upgrade to carbon fibre bucket seats.
Coming to the engine, as mentioned previously, the new M2 will use the familiar S58 engine as the current M3 or M4 though the engine is expected to be tuned to deliver lesser power and torque than in its larger siblings. The M2 CS for reference developed 444 bhp from its twin-turbocharged in-line six engine.
With BMW having offered the last generation of the M2 in India in Competition spec, we could see the carmaker bring the new-gen model to India sometime after its global launch.
