We can finally take a look inside the performance coupe.
Even though the next-generation BMW M2 already showed its front fascia unofficially, the Bavarian company continues to test prototypes of the hot hatch with significant amounts of camouflage. Two test cars were recently caught by our spy photographers – one in the traffic of Munich and one lapping the Nurburgring at high speeds. Finally, we can take an early peek at the interior.
The cabin shots suggest the performance model will get a slightly different dashboard layout compared to the regular 2 Series Coupe. Those screens appear to be a tad larger, though maybe that’s not the final design of the fascias that surround them. The steering wheel looks identical to the one in the recently launched 2 Series and that’s nearly all we can say at the moment.
The exterior shots confirm the new M2 will get beefier wheel arches hiding larger wheels. In combination with the short overhangs, this creates an overall stance that reminds us of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe from the E87 generation. The photos from the Nurburgring show a very composed hot hatch with minimal body roll probably driven by a professional test pilot. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
