sorry if a repost....bad renders IMO...

This BMW M2 Rendering Is Pretty Much Spot On
Thursday, May 8, 2014 7:41 by Arman Barari


Those of you who havenít yet ceased to be intrigued by the news of the new BMW M2 being confirmed for production are probably eager to know what the car is going to look like. You are in for a long wait, but hereís some realistic renderings of the M2 to sustain you until the real thing is revealed.


Now, a lot of you might feel a tad disappointed because this M2 looks a lot like the M235i. But that is how itís going to be. BMW M2 is, in essence, a hotted-up version of the M235i, and it is only natural for it to look like that car, albeit a bit more muscular and purposeful.

So you get the full M styling kit with the sporty bumpers featuring large air intakes at the front and a diffuser at the back, complete with a pair of twin tailpipes and a bootlid spoiler. The wheel arches meanwhile are substantially flared and the side skirts given a more aerodynamic shape. A carbon fiber roof might also be added to the mix.

Mechanically, BMW M2 will boast a tuned version of the same 3.0 liter turbocharged in-line six-cylinder engine you find in the M235i. The output is reportedly set at 370 horsepower, although earlier reports suggested it get be as much as 400 hp.

Good chance bmw will add some wide fenders to this car.. Other then that that render is probably pretty close to what we will see.

The rear looks horrible. I doubt it will look like that. Needs a wider rear fender arches. Even the 1M has a more aggressive stance than this render!

Thanks OP for the post, always got time for a look at an M, as you say off the mark.

Fenders - Wider
Wheels - Need trademark M twin spoke
Mirrors - Body colour not black
Boot lip - Raised curve, not straight
Roof - Carbon yes but not with sun roof
Front 1/4 panel - M Vent Needed

etc etc.

This render is a complete joke!

The M2 should be different enough to entice someone to spend a significant amount of money over an M235i.

It will look more aggressive and menacing a la 1M.

Carbon fibre roof
some sort of power dome on front hood (or similar treatment as m3/m4)
Muscular fenders
M style scoop front 1/4 panel
Sport seats similar to m3/m4

It will be a fantastic driver's car

No but the render he is referring to does big time.
