Presenting our M2 preview rendering. After seeing many renderings which were simply an M235i with M4 style front bumper, we took a shot at providing a more accurate preview based on our latest M2 spy photos.
We spent the most effort on digitally uncovering the parts which are clearly confirmed by the prototype – the unique lower bumper / air intake design featuring downward curving twin fins and the wide front and rear fenders.

The GSR Autosport Global Time Attack project car is being developed to run in the 2015 GTA Pro Am Series in Street Class. The overall concept is sort of a Jekyll & Hyde thing where certain parts will be able to be swapped back and forth – between track duty and street duty – parts such as the front splitter, rear decklid/wing, roll bar, seats, wheels/tires, etc.
GSR started … CONTINUED

Watch the BMW M4 GTS in action on the Nurburgring as it undergoes further testing.
Using MotoGP M4 Safety Cars as a basis (or as decoys), we see a large front spoiler lip and high trunk wing on the prototype.

The prototypes also features M Carbon Ceramic Brakes and … CONTINUED

But, the X4 M40i is particularly important because our upcoming models info shows that it will be powered by a … CONTINUED
Preview of the BMW 2 Series Gran Turismo (2 Series GT).
The 2er GT is the next logical step and previews the potential for the 2er GT as well as an exclusive look for the new Gran Turismo models of the 5er and the 3er, which will be more sleeker than today’s models but still maintain the current GT’s attributes.
