BMW Deutschland has released a teaser image on its Facebook account and we believe it's related to the highly anticipated M2 Coupe.
Attached to this inconclusive teaser pic is the following caption: "Leidenschaftliche Performance. Freuen Sie sich auf einen spannenden Oktober!" which translated in English means "Passionate performance. Look forward to an exciting October!" Based on this text, we can only assume BMW is referring to the M2 which according to sources close to Bavaria will indeed be shown this October, with a reveal on the 14th expected.
There's actually very little we don't know about the M2 as previous reports have confirmed it will be offered with both a 6-speed manual and an optional 7-speed DCT. These two will be teamed up to a turbo-six 3.0-liter estimated to deliver about 370 PS (272 KW) and 465 Nm (500 Nm with overboost).
In terms of performance, the M2 is rumored to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) task in less than 4.5 seconds before topping out at an electronically-governed 155 mph (250 km/h), but there might be an optional package lifting the limiter to around 170 mph (274 km/h).
BMW apparently has plans to offer the M2 only with four exterior paints: Black Sapphire, Alpine White, Long Beach Blue and Mineral Grey. The interior will come only in black leather with blue stitching and it is believed 19-inch black rims will be the only alloy wheel set available. All cars will have rear parking sensors, carbon fiber inserts, shadow line in black along with a Navigation Pro system. Those willing to spend more will be able to add a rearview camera, power heated front seats, adaptive headlights, Harman Kardon audio system, tinted windows, Internet access and an extended 5-year warranty.
Deliveries of the BMW M2 Coupe will likely begin towards the end of the year or early 2016, with pricing reportedly starting from €54,000.
