A 2023 BMW M2 prototype was captured testing at Salzburgring in Austria these past few weeks even though it won’t hit showrooms until April 2023, with the official reveal coming this October. No technical specifications were provided, but then again, these tests were mainly focused on its driving dynamics and chassis.
As for power, think of it as having a similar performance level to the BMW M2 CS, allowing the driver to experience that pure racetrack feeling in any conditions. The engines will be sourced from the M3 and M4 models, mated to either a manual 6-speed gearbox or 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox. For more sporty driving characteristics compared to the standard model, you’ll find an adaptive M chassis and a rear-wheel drive setup.
