BMW M2 could cost 54,000 euros

Prior to the 2016 BMW M2 launching in the coming months, it has emerged that the German sports car could retail for around 54,000 euros.

Such a figure seems reasonable considering the BMW M235i starts at 44,900 euros while the larger and more powerful M4 Coupe is priced from 72,500 euros. It is likely that the reported €54,000 figure would be for an M2 equipped with the standard six-speed manual transmission with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission inevitably adding around €2000 to that price.

If these prices are accurate, then the M2 could prove a cheaper alternative to the M4 with which it is tipped to share many of its drivetrain components with.

Beneath the skin, the M2 is tipped to feature a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine delivering a total of 365 hp and 342 lb-ft of torque. Alongside these new power and torque figures, it is suggested that the BMW M2 will feature a torque overboost system which sees twisting power bumped up to 368 lb-ft. What these figures mean is that the BMW M2 will have at its disposal an extra 44 hp over the already brisk BMW M235i. Consequently, 100 km/h should fly by in less than 4.5 seconds.
