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.

Video of the latest BMW M2 prototype running at the Nurburgring.

The previously boxy flared front fenders have been ditched in favor of traditional flared and molded fenders as we no longer see a large body gap from the earlier prototypes. As the fenders have been so widened compared to the standard 2 Series, the sideskirts do not yet fit properly.

There is no sign yet of a potential hood bulge (that’s a M235i hood), carbon fiber roof, special trunk/spoiler, nor mirrors, but those … CONTINUED
