Rendering of the 2016 BMW M2 Coupe Appears Online

by SpeedLux

There is no doubt that there are plenty of people out there who are waiting for the luxury German automotive brand, BMW, to eventually release its new M2 Coupe model of the 2016 model year. Unfortunately, there is no exact release date just yet so far. Nevertheless, a rendering of the vehicle in question has managed to come up onto the World Wide Web pages only recently. Since we can only guess that the Bavaria-based marquee is going to debut later this year, it is best if we take a look at the aforementioned rendering for now.

Speaking of the upcoming M2 Coupe from BMW, the car is reportedly coming with a rear-wheel-drive (RWD) drivetrain. However, there is quite a good chance that customers will also be offered with the optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) drivetrain typical BMW, the xDrive. This, however, may only be available in a select few of markets.

As the successor to the German company’s 1-Series M Coupe, the M2 is most likely to come with an uprated 3.0L 6-cylinder turbo engine. This should be enough to give the vehicle 380 PS of power output in total. This power is to be delivered to the wheels of the car by means of a 6-speed manual gearbox.

According to rumors that are swirling around the web at the moment, 4.4 seconds should be enough for the BMW M2 Coupe to complete its 0-100km/h acceleration. As for its top speed, the car can go past the mark of 250 km/h. However, it is due to the electronic speed limitation. This could only mean that the car can actually go way beyond that 250km/h mark if only there was no such limitation. Fortunately, customers looking to go much faster than that can actually purchase the optionally available M Driver’s Package. This will unlock a top speed of 273 km/h for the vehicle.

It is reported that the BMW M2 Coupe will come at either the end of this year or the start of next year. The car is going to bear a price more expensive than that of the M235i Coupe. For your information, the latter is offered at a price starting from 44,750 Euros in its home country, Germany, and that price is for a variant that comes with a manual gearbox and rear-wheel-drive (RWD) drivetrain.
