BMW M2 'GT4' teased

BMW M Motorsport has previewed a new 'entry-level' race car for 'grassroots motorsport' based on the M2 Competition. We've unofficially dubbed it as the 'M2 GT4', given the racing class' entry-level positioning in FIA competitions and the overall look of the track car, which doesn't appear too modified from the standard road-going version...

2020 BMW M2 'CS' spied inside and out

Photographers have snapped the upcoming BMW M2 CS once again, this time including shots of the track-focused coupe's interior. While the exterior remains hidden under camouflage, the Alcantara-heavy interior doesn't have much to hide. There's suede trim on the steering wheel, door cards, and on the dashboard. An Alcantara trim option for the seats is also likely...

2020 BMW M2 CS spied

The leanest, meanest BMW M2 has been snapped during testing, revealing its mean stance and subtle bodywork add-ons.

Autonomy will kill BMW M manuals

The manual gearbox might be living on a serious time overdraft in many parts of the world, but BMW’s M Division has no plans to stop offering it any time soon. When we spoke to boss Frank Van Meel at the launch of the M2 and M5 Competition earlier this week, he said we can expect to still have the option of a stick shift, even as the company moves to its new, modular fifth-generation architecture...

BMW M will electrify everything, division boss says

BMW has recently said it thinks up to 40 per cent of the cars it produces by 2025 may be powered by some form of pure electric or hybrid powertrain, and now we have confirmation that M Division is set to get in on the act.
