The M2, despite having a proper M name and not just 2 Series M, is going to be very similar to the 1M. When the M2 debuts, it will have a turbocharged, I6 engine making somewhere around 360-370 horsepower, a six-speed manual (though I’m sure the 7-Speed DCT will be available) and a limited-slip differential. So the recipe is quite similar to that of the 1M, but the approach will be different as BMW is purpose building the M2 from scratch to be a monster. The 2 Series is already a better, more sorted sports car than the 1 Series, so it already has an advantage over the 1M. Plus, thanks to BMW’s newfound knowledge of lightweight materials and engine technology, it should be quite a bit faster.I’m guessing that the M2 will come with all of the standard M Division carbon-fiber tech such as carbon-fiber roof, brakes and strut brace. BMW has learned a lot about lightweight materials from the i3 and i8, so expect some of these techniques to make the M2 as light as possible. The goal for BMW is to make it lighter than the M235i (3,505 lbs with a manual) which, after the power bump to 370 horsepower, should make the M2 significantly faster and approaching M3 levels of speed. If the M2 can get close to 3,200 – 3,300 lbs, it will be closing in on E30 M3 weight, but with a much better power to weight ratio.
