BMW’s muscular M2 spied on the prowl

BMW M2 prototype

We’re always happy to follow the gestation of a new M product and here’s one of the latest snaps of a BMW M2 prototype in testing.

Obviously all that crazy camouflage makes it hard to see, but if you plant your eyes just behind the front wheel arch you’ll see how much the front guard will be flared. It’s going to give the car a muscular appearance that should leave it as the best looking model in the 2 Series range.

We always liked the look of the E82 135i but once the beefier 1M hit the streets the donor car never quite looked as good. We expect the same to happen with the F87 M2, which will make the otherwise pleasing M235i seem a tad weedy.

There’s not much else we can tell you about the M2 that we haven’t already mentioned, other than that little sensor just above the driver’s door is used when BMW is testing different tyre configurations.
