According to a recent report by Auto Express, the BMW M2 G87 will have more bracing and a wider track in comparison with the M240i. Furthermore, the rear-mounted M Sport differential is going to be included as standard equipment, as will larger brakes to deal with the additional power that comes from under the car’s hood. In terms of the suspension setup, It is thought that the sports car could have stroke-dependent mechanical dampers that are adapted to the M2 model or electronic dampers that can be adjusted. The M240i comes exclusively with an automated transmission BMW hopes to offer the top-of-the-line 2er with an automatic with six speeds to please those who prefer manual.

Engine

The British magazine says that the S58 engine is a direct descendent of the big brother M4 Coupe will be dialed down to 400 horsepower in the base version. If you want to add more horsepower, you will need to upgrade towards M2 Competition. M2 Competition, which is claimed to be around 430 horsepower. Its turbocharged straight-six engine that has the 3.0-liter displacement is likely to produce another more powerful model further into the future, for a possible M2 CS. As of now, there’s no information regarding whether there’s a possibility for an M2 CSL that will come after the M4 CSL that will be launched later in the year.

It is obvious that the design will be different to the M240i as well as the lower 2 Series Coupe trim levels and will not include BMW M’s BMW M signature quad exhausts. The grille’s lower part is flanked with square intakes. it will be a kidney-shaped grille that’ll sport an average size, without going through the M4’s path. A subtle spoiler for the trunk lid is on the way and we aren’t too worried that there’s a chance that the M Performance catalog will include the rear wing that looks like mine. Wheels that are larger to accommodate the powerful brakes are in the works and will come with special side mirror caps for M, and a lowered ride height to allow to give you a more aggressive corner. The M2 is expected to have a new rear diffuser, and we aren’t ruling out a second variant to fit an M Performance stack exhaust like the one found in the M4.

While the M2 is essentially the 2 Series Coupe dialed up by a few notches, however, there are significant modifications planned for the cabin. This is specifically about the use of BMW’s iDrive 8, which will be paired with two screens that will be close to each other. Front seats that have been revamped with improved support from the lateral side are a reasonable assumption, as is a new steering wheel that can be customized with M buttons.
