2023 BMW M2 teased in tricolor camouflage

BMW has shown its upcoming M2 ahead of its unveiling later this year, with the M division detailing the engine and chassis of the high-performance coupe.


The 2023 BMW M2 has been teased ahead of its unveiling in the coming months.

BMW showed the upcoming M2 being tested at the Salzburgring racetrack in Austria, resplendent in a camouflage made up of the BMW M livery as the division celebrates its 50th anniversary.

BMW has confirmed that the new M2 will borrow its 3.0-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine from the M3 and M4, with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.

While exact performance figures have yet to be set, reports suggest the prototypes will push out about 335 kW – about 20 kW less than a rear-wheel-drive manual M4.

BMW M head Frank van Meel told German media last week that the M2 would be the last vehicle from the M division to go into production without any kind of hybrid-electric system.



According to BMWBlogthe M2 will also share its wheel track with the M4 – which is 54mm wider than the standard 2 Series – but enjoy a shorter wheelbase than its bigger sibling.

The M2 also borrows its brakes and 19/20-inch alloy wheels from the M4, with sticky Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires as an option.

Step inside and the interior of the M2 is largely lifted out of the company catalog, with M sport seats as standard and carbon bucket seats from the M3/M4 also available at an additional cost.



The full disclosure of the 2023 BMW M2 will take place in October 2022, with a local launch expected in the first half of next year.
