BMW M2 officially revealed with 365 bhp

The BMW M2 Coupe is finally here and it was definitely worth the wait as the 1-Series M Coupe successor is a very desirable model. Its heart and soul is an upgraded version of the 6-cylinder 3.0-liter engine generating 365 bhp and 464 Nm of torque (499 Nm with overboost) channeled to the rear wheel through a six-speed manual gearbox offered as standard or to an optional seven-speed M DCT. When equipped with the former, the first ever M2 will run the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 4.4 seconds before reaching an electronically-governed top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). With the auto, the sprint takes as little as 4.2 seconds.

It gets the aluminum front and rear axles from the M3 and M4 along with an Active M Differential, aluminum suspension components, vented and perforated brakes with four- and two-piston calipers plus an M-tuned electronic power steering.

The sporty body of the BMW M2 Coupe is matched on the inside by the racy theme with Dakota leather-wrapped sport seats with blue stitching and M logos embossed on the headrests. It also has a carbon fiber trim, M-branded sill plates and footrest, along with a sports steering wheel covered in leather.
