The BMW M2 reveal was fine. They told us their new 2011 1 Series M successor gets a 365 horsepower, 343 lb-ft turbo inline six and launches to 60 MPH in 4.2 seconds. They also told us other things about the car, but we could hardly understand, because, as all manufacturers know, we journalists only understand…
The normal, M-less BMW 2-series is a fantastic car to drive. I’ve driven one across the country, slept in one, and even peed in one. In all that, I never really wanted more power, but if your goals include things faster than sleeping or peeing, the M2 does it, and it’s now officially priced at $51,700.
In this short clip posted Monday on BMW USA’s Facebook, you can find the new drool-worthy BMW M2 on track, lighting its rear tires up, and getting some truly sextastic sideways drift action.

Alpha-N, a tuning shop out of Germany has just shown the world their plans for the recently unveiled BMW M2. And damn do those plans look good.
The M2 is BMW’s latest offering from its storied M Division and could possibly overtake its iconic M3 as the enthusiasts favorite BMW. At least until the rumored M2 CSL arrives. Porsche has a similar car among its ranks, the Cayman GT4, which has won over the hearts of Porsche enthusiasts from the iconic 911. So both…
Feel like the M brand is drowning in a sea of crossovers and Gran Coupes? Worried it stands more for “marketing” than anything else? Do you long for the days when an M badge meant the car was built only for the purists? The good news is that BMW is here with a love letter for enthusiasts—a two-character letter spelled
The BMW 1M Coupe was one of the greatest and most-loved M cars of all time. Now BMW aims for a hardcore, high-performance repeat with the new 2 Series. After almost two years of anticipation, this is the new BMW M2.
BMW M’s new CEO, Frank Van Meel spent some time with us at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show to talk about the future of the M brand.

BMW gets a lot of crap for building some cars that aren't exactly "ultimate driving machines." But those cars make them money so they can keep cranking out the good stuff for us, like the upcoming M2. Rumor has it the M2 could be three pedals only.
The latest rumor around the first BMW M2 comes from Germany where Auto Bild reports that the second compact M car will output 374 horsepower and 520 Newton meters of torque (384 lb-ft).

The 2016 BMW M2 was spotted testing on the Nurburgring race track.
Remember that heavily camouflaged BMW 2-Series we saw bombing around New Jersey a couple weeks back? The one that may have been an M2? Apparently it's on vacation in Washington D.C., dragging its screaming children around to see the museums and monuments.
I've heard that even among the mad scientists at BMW's M division, the nasty, kickass BMW 1-Series M Coupe remains a kind of favorite child. I'm hoping for similar results with the BMW M2, because seeing it here on the 'Ring makes me think of the old 1M.
I have a dirty secret. Super cars aren't really my thing. I appreciate them and marvel at their outrageous power and digital brains, but I'm more of an analog guy myself.
