BMW finally revealed the BMW M2 Coupe earlier this month. It took two years for the company to unveil the high performance variant of the coupe, and so, if a BMW M2 Convertible is to come, it would be at least a year away.
However, two speculative renderings by Remco Meulendijk of RM.Design give an early preview of the drop-top version, leaving almost nothing to imagination.
The BMW M2 Convertible, like its eldest brother BMW 6 Series Convertible, would come with a soft top. Getting an open-top, as usual, would also mean adding some extra weight over the M2 Coupe which weighs 1,495 kg (6-speed manual)/1,570 kg (7-speed M DCT). The convertible version should be around 150 kg heavier than the coupe, like the standard 2 Series Convertible. The boot capacity is likely to reduce from 390 litres to 280 liters (top down)/335 liters (top up).
Powering the BMW M2 Convertible would be the same 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo turbocharged inline six-cylinder petrol engine from its coupe version. The maximum power and maximum torque figures of 370 hp and 465 Nm respectively should also remain unchanged. Similarly, the transmission options are expected to be 6-speed manual and 7-speed M DCT dual-clutch. The 0-100 km/h acceleration time could take 0.2-0.3 second longer but the top speed would be limited to 250 km/h, just like the coupe.
