2016 BMW M2 Might Receive an xDrive Version

After being caught on shots a couple of days ago, the 2016 BMW M2 is ending up in our news again, this time with some interesting news, according to which the model might receive an xDrive version, apart from the usual front-wheel configuration.

In case it will come with an all-wheel drive layout, the BMW M2 must shed some weight, finally standing at around 1530 kg, in order to cope with the new configuration and higher performance. The 2016 BMW M2 xDrive is also rumored to be first launched in the United States, at the beginning of 2016.

The 2016 BMW M2 will come with a lot of power as well, as the model will be equipped in its final version, with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with direct injection, codenamed the S57 B30, and will produce around 370 horsepower. Mind that this 3.0-liter is not the same used on the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe.

The power should be enough for the upcoming BMW M2 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, when hooked to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox, at a top speed of 250 km/h.
