An increasing number of Americans describe themselves as “spiritual, but not religious,” whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean. Regardless of what you believe, greater forces are at work in the lives on enthusiasts who stay faithful—which helps explain the BMW M2.

We’ll get full details on that car in a half-hour or so, but already it’s shaping up to be something special. Something mysterious. Something... spiritual, as reader Vin puts it:

Hail M2, full of Pace

The Torque is With You

Blessed Are You Amongst Insanely-Named Bimmers

And Blessed is the Fruit of Thy turbo Inline-6

Holy M2, son of E30s, pray for those GranCoupes,

Now and at the hour of their Death.

Amen.

Pray for our souls, M2, for we sinners are not worthy of your turbocharged fury and choice of manual or dual-clutch gearbox.
