2017 BMW M2 Revealed: "M" in Its Purest Form - BMW has attempted to keep us presuming regarding a possible M2, however we can not claim we're all that stunned by its debut: The amazing success of the 1-series M Coupe made such a version an outright piece of cake.

The turbocharged N55 inline-six engine has actually been extensively fine-tuned to create 365 horsepower at 6500 revoltions per minute. Maximum baseline torque is 343 lb-ft, offered from 1400 to 5560 rpm, while an overboost function serves up 369 lb-ft from 1450 to 4750 rpm. Matched with a single turbocharger, the engine redlines at 7000 revoltions per minute. By comparison, the M235i cranks out a maximum of 320 horse power and also 330 lb-ft of torque. Besides the six-speed guidebook, there is an offered seven-speed dual-clutch automatic-- rather than the M235i, which offers an optional eight-speed torque-converter automatic. The cooling system is heavily modified to help the M2 take care of a track environment, as well as the dual-clutch gearbox obtains its very own oil colder. The sprint to 60 miles per hour is claimed to take 4.2 seconds with the automatic and 4.4 secs with the handbook; we attained zero-to-60 times of 4.3 and also 4.9 seconds from the automated and manual M235i. Full blast is controlled at 155 miles per hour.

But the M2 is as much regarding collaring characteristics as it has to do with straight-line efficiency, as well as BMW has actually cut no edges with the M2. Under the taut sheetmetal of the 2-series, the firm's engineers have actually basically loaded the framework of the M3. Compared to the M235i, the front track increases from 59.9 to 62.2 inches and also the back track from 61.3 to 63.0. With its bigger fenders, the automobile itself is currently 73.0 inches wide, up from 69.8 inches. Integrated with a somewhat lower height (55.5 rather than 55.8 inches), the M2 looks muscle and also powerful.

The M2 is matched with 245/35ZR -19 front and 265/35ZR -19 back tires; a digital back differential (Active M Differential) will help you maintain the auto in a quickly controllable drift. As well as the transmissions are configured to play along: The manual transmission consists of a rev-matching feature for downshifts, while the DCT has what BMW really calls a "smoky fatigue function.".

The aggressive styling of the M2 sharply distinguishes it from the M235i; it showcases a special front end, large air intakes, a rear looter, as well as four exhaust pipes that are as loud as they go over to take a look at.

Regardless of the additional material and also power, the M2 is in fact lighter than the M235i; at 3450 extra pounds, it sheds a declared 55 pounds. Prices hasn't been announced yet; we should understand that number more detailed to when the M2 strikes the marketplace in springtime 2017. In the meantime, we'll merely sit right here, barely able to include the anticipation of generating this supreme expression of BMW's famous M department.
