I'm thinking these renders are missing large parts of the front aero.
They are. These guys should be using those spy shots along with the GT Concept car and make a new PS. Instead, they are just taking an M235i and adding flares and quads to them.

I agree, I was simply posting what Car magazine published for the benefit of the members.

Well he's got a point. There was no official BMW doc saying N55 for production model. That production sheet leak that was posted is out dated now so you never know what they're playing with....

It would be nice to see some more spy shots of the development cars, they seem to have gone right under the radar for the last couple of months.

Warming up some old soup: two extra pictures of the M2 test mule Summer 2014 session at the Nürburgring (no quad pipe exhaust and new front bumper design yet, as spotted during the early Sep 2014 Nürburgring session).

As per sources of @Dackelone the M2 test mules remain inside the ///M Batcave during daylight.

Current prototypes have four pipe exhaust system, flared front and rear fenders - not tacked on body panels.

The problem with the rocker panels is that on the M235i Racing they look if they are stuck on but the route the M2 will take is that of the Vision Gran Turismo for a more seamless application. The overall look is influenced by the M235i Racing but applied like the Vision Gran Turismo. The more M like appearance of the Vision Gran Turismo is carried over to the M2.
Hello Scott,

Any word on a carbon fibre roof?
