BMW made several hot shots at this year’ NAIAS. There are the Air Touch concept, the M4 GTS as well as the MotoGP Safety Car Edition. For the 2017 Detroit Motor Show, the German giant arranged an aerodynamic and warmly-anticipated M2 Coupe, a compact M-segment vehicle and “our new celebrity”.
The model is expected to hit the automotive markets in April, 2016, with the tag price of £44,070 for a standard manual transmission model and £46,575 for an automatic DCT gearbox accordingly. The released M2 Coupe features a 3.0-litre bi-turbo engine producing 365bhp and sprints the electronically limited top speed of 155mph respectively. The model shows 0-62mph time in 4.5 seconds only when dealing with the six-speed manual transmission model (if you are a happy owner of a seven-speed DCT automatic gearbox, the time would be reduced to 4.3 seconds). Oh, that reminds us – the total M2 weight seems to be reduced too courtesy of aluminum for a lighter bodyshell and makes 1,495kg; it is regarded as an essential 35kg cutback as compared with the BMW M2535i. A sports steering wheel, M Dakota leathered sports seatbacks Bluetooth connectivity as well as the iDrive controller should be noted as BMW branded features to add points to this anticipated Coupe version.
