2014 BMW 2 Series Coupe Spotted in Red, Giving Us Best Look Yet

We bring you the best look yet at the 2014 2 Series Coupe (F22), this time in red. We previously posted photos of the M235i coupe and other 2 Series coupes, but this is the first clear look we've had of the F22 from all angles.

These photos provide an excellent look at the headlight shape, which are much sportier and sleeker than the much maligned headlights of F20/F21 1 Series hatchback (with which the 2 Series lineup shares a platform). The photos do not yet reveal whether the headlights connect to the kidney grilles as it does on the F30 and upcoming models such as the X5 (F15) just spied today.

Please note that styling, shape, and even size of the front and rear bumpers are not yet clear as heavy camouflage still obscures both the front and rear of the prototypes.


2 SERIES LINEUP

The 2 Series models will be built on the same RWD platform as the current 1 Series hatchbacks (F20/F21) and is expected to spawn the following lineup:
• 2 Series Coupe (F22)
• 2 Series Convertible (F23) (spy pics)
• 2 Series Gran Coupe (four door coupe) - still speculative [more info].
• 2 Series Gran Sports Tourer (Hyundai Veloster type vehicle) - still highly speculative [more info].
• M235i M Performance Automobile - as now spotted and confirmed [spy pics].
• M2 Coupe - successor to current 1M coupe, recently rumored to be 4 Cylinder [more info] (though we have our doubts as the M235i is likely to share the M135i's six cylinder inline engine and our photographer confirms clearly hearing a 6 cylinder in the M235i prototype).
• M2 Gran Coupe - M version of 2 Series Gran Coupe to compete with Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG and Audi S3 Sedan; still speculative [more info].
Also see the latest summary of the potential 1 Series, 2 Series, M2, Z1, Z2, and X1 lineup.


SCHEDULE

The 2 Series will begin production in November 2013, as a 2014 model year.

Love it! Man looks like the truck just delivered the car from Leipzig! Even has the factory build sheet still on the center of the dash.

Really like that BMW has gone to all LED brake lights. Not feeling the "base" halogens though. Overall I like it!

When I look at the close up of the headlights, I thought it reminded me of the front end of this render from a couple years back when there were rumors BMW was playing with turning the kidneys grills upside down...

I wonder if the front will look anything like this, those lights look pretty sleek on the prototype...

That's definitely not a bad thing, and what many people are hoping for actually.

There's alot of test cars there! Looks like 1-er CAT, 3GT, i8, also possibly the Rolls Royce Ghost Coupe behind the fence where the Red 2-er coupe is parked... also 6-er with camo, agressive looking 5-er with camo...

I'm thinking there might be a sudden influx of winter testing spy pics.

Way too small to be the new X5 (latest spy pics from today).

Looks like it could be the 1 Series GT (latest spy pics)

Yup, there's already been an influx in recent weeks. See http://www.bimmerpost.com/spyshots/

Fun times!

Fun times indeed.... curse my impatience though!

Edit: I'm thinking the 3GT behind the red 2-er is the Luxury line model, judging by the wheels (10×3 spoke visible in the other pic) and the chrome.

I'm just not feeling the proportions of the 1-Coupé/2-series. While this is a bit of an improvement from the old 1-Coupé, it still looks too fat/bulky. Nothing at all like the old 3-series cars E30/E36/E46. BMW should either; make the car a bit longer, stretch the roofline a bit (like the 4-Coupé), or reduce the height of the side-panels of the car (from the windows to the ground basically).
