BMW M2 Caught in Spy Photos for First Time

BMW M2 Caught in Spy Photos for First Time

Rumors have been swirling about BMW  working on a proper M2, and now our spy photographers have spotted the German brand testing the new small sports car. 

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.
