The new BMW M2 has been getting out and about lately putting in some good miles at the Nürburgring. And the latest word is that it won’t be too long until we get to see the car without its fancy swirly graphics.
Frank van Meel, BMW M boss, spoke to Dutch publication Autovisie recently and shared a few of his company’s upcoming plans.
First, there was Bad Frank. Boo, we don’t like Bad Frank, because he told us there are no current plans to make an M3 Touring. Bad Frank says there wouldn’t be enough demand for such a car.
“Is this clown f@%king kidding himself!” was the loud exclamation heard at AUSmotive HQ when we first read that news.
But it’s okay, because once Bad Frank mentioned that about an M3 Touring and something else about an M7 being a waste of time, he quickly transformed into Good Frank. Now, Good Frank only deals in the good shit.
Good Frank said the new M2 will be on show at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September. And, even gooder, Good Frank reckons the M2 details and photographs will be revealed in full before the car makes it show debut.
So there you have it, indisputable proof that Good Frank is way better than Bad Frank.
For your added viewing pleasure there’s a couple of M2 videos after the break showing a couple of F87 M2 prototypes in action.
