Our spies have caught the BMW M2 testing again in Europe, and this time the testers were spotted having some sideways fun. It seems like BMW is adding finishing touches to the M2 with the test mule looking near production ready.
There are speculations that a new 2.0-litre four-pot engine might make its debut with the M2. But, it seems like it will most likely be using a re-engineered version of the six-cylinder 3.0-litre N55 unit. While BMW has been tight-lipped about the technical details of the M2, there are rumours that it might have power in excess of 374bhp. However we believe BMW won’t give it power in excess of 380bhp as that will make its elder sibling - the M4 a little out of place. There are rumours that it will strictly be a manual only, which might not be true if BMW wants this model to sell in good numbers. So they might need to equip it with the brilliant 7-speed M-DCT auto box.
The M2 might be unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The launch will follow in early 2016 in the international markets. As an enthusiast there is no reason why BMW should not launch the M2 in India, but the chances are bleak. However, to look at the brighter side BMW must introduce the M2 in India to strengthen its performance range in India.
