X-Tomi Design is showing us his vision of the BMW M2 set to come out most likely early 2016.

The M235i Coupe might be on top of the 2-Series range right now but it won't remain there too long as BMW is planning a fully-fledged M2 which is rumored to enter production in the fall of 2015 so it will likely end up being a 2016MY. After checking out the M235i, it's not difficult to imagine how the M2 will end up looking and chances are the attached renders provided by X-Tomi Design paint a very accurate picture.

According to the latest reports, the 2016 BMW M2 will be motivated by a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine delivering up to 380 PS (279 kW) which would make it 54 PS (39 kW) more powerful than the M235i. As a consequence, expect the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run to be completed in less than 4.8 seconds needed by the M235i fitted with the optional 8-speed automatic gearbox.
