The camouflaged wider fenders on this test car are the first tip that this is something more than the M235i, which is currently the sportiest version of the 2 Series you can buy. There are also blue brake calipers, cross drilled rotors and performance wheels which tip off this car’s true nature.
Under the hood, a straight six-cylinder engine is expected with between 365 and 375 hp. The new M2 will probably launch as a 2016 model year car, sporting a more aggressive front fascia than the one seen in these photos. Out back, a quad exhaust setup is another likely feature.
