Updated September 16, 2015 with even more preview renderings.

Updated August 24, 2015 with a look at the BMW M2 in Long Beach Blue Metallic, one of the four confirmed colors for the M2.


The latest round of BMW M2 spy photos and videos have given us the best real life look yet at the BMW M2 styling details (based on our latest spy photos). And we now give you the best digital reveal of what lies beneath the camouflage.

We've given the front end look a few different headlight options, as well as different possible air intake sizes.

To repeat our latest info:

The M2 will be powered by the N55 engine, producing approximately 365 HP and 343 lb-ft. The engine will also feature an "over boost" of +35Nm (25 lb-ft), in the low to mid range RPM.

The options, as revealed, are as follows:





A rumored reveal date of October 14/15 has recently been posted. For the latest info and details on the M2, please follow http://www.bimmerpost.com/m2

Interesting...very,very interesting.

Congratulations, it is the first most accurate rendering of the new M2 seen so far.

And as discussed previously what you are seeing is the Vision GT but brought in to assist with the more realistic aspects of a performance road car.

Although it is not without reason to get a little "wilder".

Surprised how good this one turned out. The camouflage made it look very boring.

But this is quite bad ass.

CF roof and baby bump on the engine hood would have made this car dead sexy.

Kudos to WildSpeed for the photoshop!

The M2 is the car that sometimes makes me think that I pulled the trigger on my 4GC too soon.

I like the non reflector rear and the 1st or 2nd picture of the front best!

I like the straight on perspective, but the angle and back seem odd. Hopefully just the render.

I'm not crazy about the profile... if it looks like this and it uses a more agressive n55 I'm keeping my car (m235i).

The front bumper has too many angles for me it doesnt match the rest of the body lines (just my opinion).

I think the 235 with the BMW Racing widebody looks much better. I thought the car was going to resemble that look rather than this.

Just my opinion dont crucify me.

Nicely done,the pic without the reflectors on the rear bumper definitely looks way better.Scott26 already said that the M2 won't have them there,so I guess they will incorporate them into the bumper like the M4.

Well, I've been saying it all along.

"The M2 will look more aggressive than you think."

But some refused to believe it. Hell, one forum user said it looked like a pre LCI 128i. Well.

This thing is a freaking beast.

A bit odd IMO, I prefer the design of the M3/4 front end.

And maybe I missed it, but I thought the M2 was not getting LED headlights? Maybe it's here just for the sake of the render.

Still, will be a menacing car

That rear end with the wide expanse of bumper area looks...odd. Can't wait to see the final reveal.
