2023 BMW M2 spied showing off front-end design, less camo

Here’s our best look at the next-gen M2 yet

It’s been over a year since we looked at spy pictures of the next-gen BMW M2, and also because time BMW has gotten rid of some of the camouflage concealing the two-door sports car’s keys.

The large item of note with these newest spy photos is a good check out the M2’s front end. Comparable to the conventional 230i as well as M240i, the M2 appears to be obtaining a relatively normal-size kidney grille. It’s still big, broad and also lengthened versus the previous M2, however these shots leave no question that the upright kidneys of the M3 and also M4 won’t be converted over to the M2. Outside of the grille, it’s business as usual for an M automobile. A huge opening in the reduced bumper discloses much more cooling ability, and additional inlets on the outsides of stated bumper exist to let even more air pass through. BMW’s camouflage hides the last form and also sculpting of the bumper from our peering eyes, yet it looks aggressive as well as sharp-edged, similar to various other brand-new BMW styles these days.

There isn’t much new to see in these shots beyond the front-end styling, however BMW does give us little looks of the lights in front and back. We can see that they’re the production LED units, which suggests that this prototype is pretty far along in advancement. If you didn’t care for the tails on the criterion 2 Collection, you most likely will not such as these either, as they appear to share the very same shape.

Lastly, we’ll point out the typical M-style quad exhaust poking out and integrated into the back bumper design. It’s an instead enormous appearance from the back with the wide rubber, flared fenders and also neatly-concealed aggro rear bodywork.

The latest reports indicate the new M2 being a 2023 version year launch. Power is reported to be in the 450-horse variety from BMW’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six.
