Bimmerpost brings word of the specifications for the forthcoming F22 BMW 2 Series CoupÃ©, notably the M235i. Also included are specs for the 220i and 220d.
The data came via the BMW South Africa website which means we can take it as being accurate. Here’s the key stats, and after the break you can see screen grabs.
Power/torque: 240kW @ 5800rpm / 450Nm @ 1300â€“4500rpm
Engine: 2979cc six cylinder turbo (N55B30O0)
Weight (unladen): 1455kg (manual), 1470kg (auto)
0â€“100km/h: 5.0s (manual), 4.8s (auto)
Power/torque: 135kW @ 5000rpm / 270Nm @ 1250â€“4500rpm
Engine: 1997cc four cylinder turbo (N20B20U0)
Weight (unladen): 1350kg (manual), 1365kg (auto)

Power/torque: 135kW @ 4000rpm / 380Nm @ 1750â€“2750rpm

For those playing at home they’ll been keen to note a small 5kW increase for the M235i compared with the M135i, which brings a very slight performance benefit too, shaving 0.1s off the claimed 0-100km/h times.
