BMW M2 Coupe rumored to debut at 2015 Detroit Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on October 15, 2014

We already know that a new M car is coming and will be slotted below the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe. That’s right, we are talking about the BMW M2 Coupe, the official successor of the 1-Series M Coupe. The new vehicle will sit above the M235i Coupe and will arrive a brand new design, featuring flared wheelarches as well as the M car bonnet bulge.

Under the hood we will find a 3.0-liter single-turbo straight-six engine that will develop up to 374 hp (279 kW) and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque. Carsten Priest told AutoExpress that the company needs to pay attention and not make the M2 a rival for the M3 and M4. As a result, the M2 Coupe will be offered exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission, just like the 1-Series M Coupe.

Regarding the debut, Priests said that usually, there is a year delay between the base model and the M car, which means that we should probably see the new M2 Coupe at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. If not, probably the 2015 Geneva Motor Show will be the place to see the new M car.

If you can’t wait that long, the current M235i Coupe is probably the car you are looking for. This model is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

The M235i Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds when using the 8-speed Sports automatic transmission with Launch Control activated, while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph.
