New BMW M2 Coupe Caught during Road Tests

Rumors have it, BMW M Division is ready to introduce new M2 Coupe which might own a 370bhp-plus turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine.

The coupe borrows the body-styling from M235i (probably including the power specs too), while the alloy wheels are inherited from the new M3 and M4. The Blue performance brakes are visible on the mule, but the coupe is devoid of usual M division features like quadruple exhaust tailpipes and a more pronounced front and rear bumpers.

Apart from that nothing can be said for sure, as the secret still lies with the company’s engineers. The new BMW M2 Coupe is expected to enter the markets in the last quarter of this year.
