There have been rumors flying around concerning 2023 BMW M2 coupe. Not to mention that there have been several spyshots concerning the Beemer on a testing stage. Moreover, Beemer has released their coupe 2 Series line for the 2022 model and it comes with rear wheel driving system. It also means that the favorable M2 won’t lose its signature style when it comes with its redesigned work.
You need to remember that Beemer has decided that they are going to make untraditional cars, and the example is quite obvious from their iX. However, it turns out that the manufacturer hasn’t forgotten their roots, including their performance car. Even though they have created the electric cars, like the M4 and M3, they still don’t forget their ‘traditional’ car with impressive power and ability. The current M2 is a promising vehicle, so imagine what it will be with the promising improvements made to the M2.
The Possible Redesigned Work
There have been videos and spy shot images showing the suspected M2 prototype at Nürburgring – the very first time. Even with the prototype being heavily covered, the styling cues of BMW M are still present and they can be visibly seen. You can still see the side mirrors that are aerodynamically shaped, the flared wheel arches, and the quad exhaust tips with the center mounted design.
The Exterior Changes and Updates
If the prototype of the 2023 BMW M2 gives any clue to the upcoming model, then the redesigned M2 would be wider and longer than the vehicle it has replaced, and it would be the carry over to the new M2. This fact alone will boost stability although weight can be a problem. But everyone knows that the body’s torsional stiffness will also increase along with the new generation.
Some say that the M2 may get several performance tweaks, including the carbon fiber roof (which is completely optional) and also updated aero. Many of the designs are inspired from the M4 and M3, but it turns out that not all of them would be available for the M2. You can’t really expect the bucket seats or the brakes (made from carbon ceramic) would be available on the M2.
There isn’t much information about the details of the interior either. But with the fact that M2 is coming with refreshed updates, you can expect better vibe, better technologies, and better features. If the current vehicle is already good and promising, think about how cool it would be for the upcoming model.
Powertrain and Performance
Many people have hoped that the new M2 would be coming with inline-6 twin turbocharged unit with 3.0 liter capacity, just like the one used not only in M4 and M3, but also in X3 M as well as X4 M. For this new M2, the output is expected to reach 420 hp – a significant improvement from the last M2 model producing 365 hp. Expect better and punchier M2 Competition during the upcoming launch as well.
For the transmission, there are different options, covering the manual 6 speed and auto 8 speed. The standard one would be the rear wheel driving system although all wheel drive would be offered in Competition variant. This is the similar scheme as the M4 and M3.
Price and Release Date
The M2 should be debuted in 2022. After all, it is set as 2023 model. It’s most likely that production will take place in San Luis Potosi in Mexico, as it is one of the major manufacturing plants of the brand. Moreover, this is the place where the regular coupe 2 Series is being manufactured. Since we haven’t got anything details about the ride, we should wait for further info of 2023 BMW M2.
