BMW M2 at Geneva

BMW M2

Production of the long-awaited BMW M2 sports car is set to start in November this year after the new car emerged on BMW dealer computers across the United States.

The build sheet reveals that production of U.S-spec M2s will begin in November just like those destined for Europe. Customer deliveries are then most likely to commence in late December or early January 2016.

According to reports, a concept variant of the BMW M2 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 in March in near production-spec. The covers will then reportedly be taken off the road-going BMW M2 at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show 2015.

As for what will power the M2, the latest reports indicate that a brand new, next-generation 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder is likely to be given the green light. Designated as the S57 B30, the new engine will feature different internals to the same sized ‘six from the M3/M4. All up, it should deliver around 370 hp and come fitted with either a six-speed manual transmission or alternatively, a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
