The BMW 2 collection was up to date final yr, however to date we haven’t seen a full-bore M variant of the brand new compact coupe. Rumors have swirled about what kind it might take, however BMW has been detest to substantiate something on the subject — till at present, that’s. With a 35-second clip on YouTube, the corporate confirmed that the true final driving machine is coming again — and shortly.
The teaser, posted by BMW M’s YouTube channel, doesn’t present a lot of the automobile itself. There are grainy pictures of roads, grainy pictures of individuals, and even grainy pictures of the M2 brand, however solely 24 brief frames of a motorcar. They don’t present a lot, however what we can see is unquestionably attention-grabbing.
All we see of the outside are the automobile’s daytime working lights, the one factors of illumination on an in any other case darkish display. Their form eschews the normal BMW double-element design for one thing extra fashionable — and extra generic. To me, they give the impression of being straight off the C8 Corvette; our esteemed supreme overlord Bob Sorokanich felt they’d extra of a Tesla vibe. Vote within the feedback on who’s proper, or what automobile they carry to your thoughts.
The video appears to reference the outgoing M2’s light-weight, flickable nature with the title “THE M2 is on its approach. Prepare for playtime.” Whereas the phrase could lack its conventional ending, “… kitten,” BMW is aware of its goal market — M2 patrons would reasonably have enjoyable than set a Nurburgring lap document.
BMW hasn’t set a reveal date for the upcoming M2, solely promising that it’s “Coming Quickly.” Whereas it might make sense for that to imply a 2022 reveal, presumably forward of a model-year 2023 car arriving in sellers, all we will do for now could be speculate — and rewatch the teaser for any glimpse of the brand new automobile.
