German automobile manufacturing giants, BMW has had one of their most successful runs in the history of their company with their 1-Series M which was light as well as agile. However, very less number of units of BMW M1 was manufactured which designated its production period from 2010 to 2012.These two years of production could not satisfy the customers and turned this car into a mythical unicorn instead of a track conquering beast. BMW tried to bring back M1 with M235i but that was a complete disaster as the heavy coupe could not live up to the expectations and performance of M1.
But now, BMW has announced the launch of their latest 2017 BMW M2 which is going to be the successor of 1-Series M. With ample power and lightness in weight, BMW M2 will surely be the track slaying beast everyone wanted to own.
The latest version of 2-Series M, 2017 BMW M2 draws inspiration from original and highly appreciated E30 M3 as well as M4. Glimpses of the 1973 production model, 2002 Turbo can also be seen. One may also correctly describe this latest M2 as an M235i running on steroids. All these comparisons are not merely being done as this car has the potential to surely live up to the expectations or maybe even exceed it.
