    M2 crowned Top Gear Coupé of the Year

    It’s not even officially on sale yet but the M2 has already started winning awards from the UK’s motoring press, with Top Gear naming it as its Coupé of the Year. Commenting on the award, Top Gear’s consultant editor said: “It’s refined, well-equipped and nicely built. A quality item all-round. Not too garishly styled either, but those widened wings tell the story to people who know… It’s very hard indeed to think of a better new car for your £44,070.”

  • #2016 M rumours – #BMW-M2
    As always, the internet is awash with rumours about the future M cars and the stories currently doing the rounds revolve around the M2, the M4 GTS and a potential high performance version of the i8. Working in chronological order we know that an M2 will be coming out and are expecting a machine very much in the mould of the 1 Series M Coupé which will mean a skilful amalgamation of regular production components and those found on the M3 and M4. We’re not expecting a version of the M3/M4 engine under the bonnet though, instead the car will use a tweaked version of the #M235i ’s unit with an expected output of around 370hp.

    Many chassis parts will be taken from the M3 and M4 while we’re expecting the body to be a moderately sanitised version of the one fitted to the #BMW M235i Racing. There is plenty of discussion over the car’s gearbox though and one theory is that it will, like the 1M, only be available with a manual ‘box to avoid #M2 sales impinging on those of the M3 and M4 which are almost exclusively being ordered with the #M-DCT transmission. M4 test mules have recently been seen circulating the Nordschleife wearing BMW Safety Car logos but this minimal disguise has failed to stop us from concluding that these are actually M4 GTS test cars. When we were on the launch of the new #M4 , BMW M’s Albert Biermann more or less confirmed that there would be a replacement in the pipeline for the much-loved #E92 #M3 GTS, but this time we’re hoping the car will have a slightly less stratospheric price and be built in greater numbers.

    The last rumour concerns BMW’s plans for its centenary in 2016 with many commentators reckoning that a high performance version of the #BMW-i8 might be in the offing. Rumours range from a #M5 V8-powered version to one equipped with the M4’s twin-turbo straight-six. Either would be a tantalising prospect but we reckon if this supercar does ever appear it will still utilise the i8’s hybrid drivetrain although it’s possible the three-cylinder unit will be replaced by a more powerful four-cylinder unit and be coupled to a higher output electric motor. Time will tell…
