BMW M2 to become reality in 2016

The BMW M2(F87) has been given the go ahead for mass production. This news comes from a very trustworthy source inside BWM, who has proven to be extremely accurate in the past. The car will have the full M spec treatment with the usual carbon roof, flared wheel arches, quad exhaust and a meatier engine than the 235i. Speculation says that the car should have around 360 to 380 hp from an updated version of the N55 Twin-power 3-litre.

Furthermore the car will not have a limited production run like the previous 1M, which should make the market for M3’s very interesting. South Africa can expect the car to arrive in the first quarter of 2016.
