This Bavarian car maker has many fans all over the world and most of them will be very interested to see new sport coupe that BMW prepares to launch. According to company’s spokesman, this new model will be a new entry-level high-performance coupe and it will come as 2016 BMW M2. This model, which is some kind of a successor of 1M limited mode, will have all necessary characteristics that one sports car need. It will have very aggressive look, exciting interior, which will be full of hi-tech features, excellent performances and it will also have great fuel economy, which is nowadays important as much as other mentioned characteristics.
2016 BMW M2 redesign
Like every model from this company, 2016 BMW M2 will be characterized by very attractive design. Although it will use the same design language as other BMW model, it will have its unique characteristics too. Beside standard design tweaks that separate “M” from “standard” models, it will also use the F21 platform, like future 2-Series models. The 2016 M2 will be made of some extra lightweight materials, which are reserved for only few models like M3 CRT or i8. Big part of the construction of these vehicles is made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics, which provides significant weight savings. This big weight reduction guarantees not only great driving experience, but also big fuel savings.
2016 BMW M2 engine
With “M” models, it is pretty much all about performances. This model definitely won’t be an exception. The 2016 BMW M2 will use the same engine that can be found in 235i model. It is a 3.0 liter straight six twin turbo engine, which will probably be slightly tuned up for this occasion. Coupled with all-new DCT semi-automatic transmission, 2016 M2 will be able to produces somewhere around 380-400 horsepower. In terms of performances, this means that this coupe will be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4.2 seconds, while top speed will be over 150 mph.
