A near-production prototype of the BMW M2 Coupe has been spotted in a parking lot in Germany.

It was wearing the final specification front bumper with beefier air intakes and breathers while the fuel cap was round whereas the one the M235i is square. Also noticeable are the blue brake calipers, trunk lid spoiler, quad exhaust setup and the 19-inch wheels similar to those on the bigger M4.

We know for sure it will be offered with a standard six-speed manual gearbox and an optional seven-speed DCT, with both teamed up to a six-cylinder, 3.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine pushing out around 370 PS (272 KW) and 465 Nm (500 Nm with overboost). Body hues will be limited to Mineral Grey, Long Beach Blue, Alpine White and Black Sapphire combined with a black leather interior featuring blue stitching.

The BMW M2 Coupe will likely premiere in the weeks to come, so stay tuned for the full scoop.
