The acceleration 0-100 km/h in be around 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) – electronically limited. The engine is connected to a an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox sending the power to a variable ///M differential at the rear wheels.
According to the latest rumors, the new BMW 2-Series M2 will be officially unveiled in the end of the next year, and first deliveries are expected sometime in 2016. Still, there is a lot of time, so more information and pictures will be published.
