The upcoming 2016 BMW M2 has been filmed testing at the Nurburgring for the very first time sporting some larger wheels and aggressively flared arches.
Because BMW, just like its rivals, is downsizing its engine line-up, the M2 prototype doesn’t sound all that impressive compared to BMW M models in the past. However, for what the car lacks in sound, it should more than make up for in pure speed.
Powering the BMW M2 will be the same 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine utilised by the current range-topping M235i. Whereas the BMW M235i delivers 322 hp, the BMW M2 should deliver around 380 hp and perfectly bridge the gap to the M3 and M4.
Braking power will be provided by upgraded brakes with this prototype sporting larger discs and blue calipers.
