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

F87 M2 prototypes have now been spotted with more advanced bodies. Gone is the M235i front fascia from the previous spotted prototypes. The front bumper is now fully camouflaged, indicating that what lies underneath is the production-intent bumper styling.

Autoexpress reports that a BMW insider they spoke to at the M235i launch in Las Vegas last week let on that the BMW M2 “makes a lot of sense.” In addition, a “source” confirmed that a road-going version of the M235i Racing (a track-only customer race car) was considered for production, but this plan was nixed so as not to “step on the toes of something else higher up the range.” The source added that this refers to a new M car.
