Apparently the upcoming M2 will get a body-kit inspired by the track-only M235i Racing.
There should be carbon fiber to reduce weight and improve performance. The M2 should be powered by a twin-turbocharged variant of the 3.0-liter straight-six found in the M235i. Horsepower should be around 380. And price should be about $55,000.
they need to be exceptionally careful here. Even with the detuned M4 mill, allt he weight savings on the smaller 2 series will bring M4 and M2 P/W ratios right in line, not to mention the lower MSRP for M2, why would anyone go for an M4????
Sometimes you just want to show off how you're in a different tax bracket with a more expensive vehicle.
nah the gap won't even be that significant. Figure the 235i is priced at $43,100, the 435 is priced at $46,000 and the 435xi is priced at 48,000. Spending an extra couple thou (translate to extra $50 per month) is not a whole new tax bracket. They're going to be competing for the same clientele.
