2015 BMW 2 Series Coupe Review

Displaying 20150406122048.jpg
Smallest BMW M-model will arrive in late 2015, sporting around 370bhp from a 3.0-litre straight six. It's been rumoured and hinted at for a long time, but it looks like BMW is finally ready to add another model to its ultra-hot M-range. Fans lusting after a smaller and cheaper M-car will be satisfied imminently as the M2 Coupe is set for release at the end of the year.

While the 1-series M Coupe was engineered and rushed to market in a short time, BMW is taking its time to fine-tune the M2. And because the "regular" M235i, an M Performance model, already approaches the performance capabilities of the old 1-series M Coupe, the M2 needs a generous extra helpingof power and technology. We expect the M2 to be considerably lighter than the M235i.

Its price point will see the new M2 CoupĂ© compete directly with an upgraded version of the Mercedes-AMG A45 and the upcoming second-generation Audi RS3 when it reaches UK showrooms this summer. A public debut for the new BMW in lightly-veiled concept car guise is planned for this year’s Frankfurt motor show in September.

The M2 CoupĂ© will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0-litre in line six-cylinder direct injection petrol engine. It won’t, however, be the powerplant used by the larger and more expensive four-door M3 and its mechanical identical two-door sibling the M4, according to departing M division boss Friedrich Nitschke.

Described as an all-new development, the S57 B30-designated unit is based around the German car maker’s upcoming B57 powerplant that is planned to make its debut in the sixth-generation7-series later this year - rather than the older N55 engine that forms the basis of the unit that powers the M3 and M4, the so-called S55 B30.

A heavy cloak of secrecy surrounds the new engine, which is also earmarked to power a range of future petrol powered ‘M Performance’ models for BMW M’s subordinate go-faster brand. Nitschke revealed it could develop up to 400bhp in production form, beating the future power output of the four- and five-cylinder engines of the A45 and RS3.
