2016 BMW M2 F87 + Upcoming Concept Cars
A new BMW M2 (F87) has recently been spotted wearing one of its production line colors.
2016 BMW M2 F87 will debut at Frankfurt motor show, which is in less than two months.
2016 BMW M2 F87 will be available in four colors: Alpine White, Mineral Grey, Long Beach Blue, and Black Sapphire.
The 2016 BMW M2 codenamed F87 is a very important product for BMW.
Over the years BMW M3 sedan and now M4 coupe have grown in size, they’ve also changed from being the true Ultimate Driving Machine to dull, high powered, less engaging, and large luxury automobiles.
Just like its predecessor the BMW 1M, the 2016 BMW M2 F87 is designed to redeem BMW M and what it once stood for.
BMWs were known for their handling, and how engaging they are to drive however the most recent generation of BMWs are anything but.
The 2016 BMW M2 will be lighter than the BMW M235i, and it will be wider, lower, more powerful and faster.
BMW M2’s power comes courtesy of BMW’s twin turbo N55 inline 6 engine N55B30O0, this is the same engine that powers the BMW M235i however with outputs of up to 370 horsepower and 355 lb-ft of torque.
BMW M2 will be capable of a sub four seconds 0-60 mph with the optional DCT.
The 2016 BMW M2 F87 will be more engaging to drive than the F80 M3 and F82 M4, with better steering feel.
On Another note, BMW is set to reveal two new concept cars during 2015 Monterey Car Week at the Pebble Beach.
We’re guessing that BMW M2 concept and i8S are the two concepts cars.
