After being rumored and caught on shots many times, the BMW M2 will be finally showcased at the 2015 NAIAS, Detroit, next January.
We are not talking here about an official confirmation from the German based luxury carmaker, but a recent report released by Auto Express, states the presence of the BMW M2 at the 2014 NAIAS, in Detroit.
The news is also confirmed by Carsten Priest, the chief at the M`s department, mentioning that the M2 will take over the battle left by the 1M Coupe.
The BMW M2 will sport a more aggressive body kit than the M235i, while under the hood, the sports car will pack a 3.0-liter six-cylinder unit, also seen on the M3 Sedan, M4 Cabrio and the M4 Coupe.
Even so, this particular model will sport less power, meaning a total output of 374 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque, hooked to a 6-speed manual transmission, or the optional 7-speed automatic M DCT.
The BMW M2 might hit its dealerships at the end of the next year.
