Spy photographers once again spotted the new BMW M2 undergoing testing at Germany’s Nurburgring race track.

The new M2 was spotted in January 2015 performing laps on the famous track but in March 2015, it appears to have shed much of its camouflage.

The new M2 appears wider than the standard 2 Series with wide wheels to match. Under those wheels, massive cross-drilled rotors hide while the boot lid gained a small lip for more downforce on the rear axle.


It new bumper has a new design for the intakes in the works while at the rear you can spot quad tailpipes.

Its exhausts hint to at an upgraded version of the N55 units used in all cars sold by BMW bearing its 35i badge. However, the new M2 is tipped to be capable of 275kW/500Nm.


Automedia reports that new M-car will be available with a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto and it’s equipped with a limited-slip differential.

Production is slated to begin in November 2015 so expect the M2 to be unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show in September.
