This is our first official look at the new BMW M2, the rear-wheel-drive maintains a rich tradition for coupé models at BMW’s M division, all the way back to the original M3.

It will make 365 bhp and 343 ft.-lbs. of torque from its 3.0 liter turbocharged straight-six. Reaching 0–62 mph in just 4.3 seconds with top speeds limited to 155 mph, the car will also wear 19-inch forged wheels, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Due for release in January 2016, pricing hasn’t yet been revealed.
