BMW is ready to officially launch the 2016 BMW M2 in November, the deliveries starting at the beginning of 2016, but until then, new M2 test mules have been spotted cruising the streets of California. Two other BMW M2s were previously spotted while being tested on the Mojave Desert.
Judging by the photos provided by Bimmerpost, the 2016 BMW M2 spotted in California are wrapping the Alpine White, Mineral Grey as well as the Black Sapphire colors. Another interesting thing to be noticed is that the Black Sapphire M2 is coming with a sunroof, which confirms the initial reports, stating no carbon fiber roof.
Additionally, the 2016 BMW M2 will come with a 50:50 weight distribution between the two axles, thanks to the technological advanced chassis. More than that, the upcoming M2 will also fit the M limited-slip differential on the rear axle.
Already previewed, the 2016 BMW M2 will pack the updated N55 engine with some components taken from the S55 unit, seen on the 2-Series` top of the line M235i. We might be dealing here with a good 365 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque. Until further news, enjoy the photos with the 2016 BMW M2 in California.
