BMW is launching a new model in their BMW M lineup.
The 2016 M2 Coupe is smaller and lighter than the M3/M4 lineup, and is probably one of our favorite models yet.
The BMW uses the same underpinnings made of aluminum as the M3/M4 models, including front and rear axle assemblies, suspension struts, and tubular anti-roll bar. Also made of aluminum is the control arms and wheel carriers in the five link rear suspension, which will help with unsprung weight.
The M2 comes equipped with 19 inch wheels, wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and M Compound composite breaks with four piston caliper up front and two piston caliper in the rear to provide stopping power.
The power is provided by an inline six cylinder engine, which is turbocharged to produce 365 horsepower with 343 foot pound of torque.
This propels the car to 0-60 in the low 4 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155 miles per hour.
The car is available with both 6 speed manual and automatic dual clutch transmissions.
