BMW might launch the M2 coupe in 2016

Nothing is for sure yet however chances are Bavarians from BMW might introduce the M2 coupe by 2016. For now, they have unveiled the M235i Coupe, but the M2 Coupe keeps bothering the minds of many with the possibility to penetrate the market as well. Despite the fact that the carmaker did not give any consistent and precise info on the new potential mode, chances are the M2 Coupe might turn into reality. Rumors about its launch have appeared at the global launch of the new M235i that took place in Las Vegas. At its launch, the model will be lighter, more powerful and even sharper in comparison to the M235i. Actually the model might have between 200-and 300 lbs improving performance figures as well as handling. In terms of engine, the M2 might be equipped with a de-tuned version of the new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six borrowed from the new M3 and M4, capable of generating around 400 horsepower. This is when you can imagine how driving a lighter, faster M2 would feel like. In terms of the exterior appearance, the M2 might have styling elements borrowed from the M235i Racing, including the flared fenders, wider wheels and arches and a lot more. To complete the package, the engineers might also offer an M-tuned suspension and M-electronics. If BMW decides to make the model a reality it might arrive on the market in 2016 as a model year and this means that we might see it in 2015 in an auto show.
