BMW is putting the finishing touches on the highly-anticipated M2 and our spies have recently caught the model on the Nürburgring.

Looking undeniably aggressive, the M2 has a sportier front bumper, aerodynamic side skirts and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.  The model also has five-spoke alloy wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system.

BMW has been tight-lipped about performance specifications but the car is expected to have a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 370 PS (272 kW) and 465 Nm (342 lb-ft) of torque - 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) with overboost.  This should enable the model to easily outrun the M235i which can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in as little as 4.8 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
