BMW M2 Will Start at €56,700 in Germany, Deliveries Begin in April 2016

Excited about the BMW M2? Good, then you’ll be disappointed to learn that the new M model will go on sale in April 2016, so there’s quite a long way to go until we get to see the first cars on public roads, camo free.

Even though the production for the new M2 is scheduled to kick off in November (meaning we have around two more weeks to go), the first deliveries will take place in April next year. Until then, development cars that have been ordered a long time ago will be shipped to the companies that paid for them and journalists will get a taste of what the M division has been hard at work on.

After all of that is done, owners will finally start recieving their rides. In the U.K., as we told you earlier, prices will start at just over £44,000, which translates into roughly $67,000 at today’s exchange rates. Don’t expect such a huge price tag in the U.S., though, as we’re guessing it will be closer to $51,000 in reality.

Until the M2 models start arriving on this side of the Atlantic, though, the Europeans will begin ordering and in Germany the price tag will start at €56,700 as per the latest info available. That’s a decent price, to be honest, one that leaves room between the M235i and the M4.

Since the M Performance Automobile starts at €44,900 and the bigger brother at €72,500, that’s a whole lot of leeway in between. Around €12,000 more might seem like a lot, but then you need to take a look at the performance of the two.

The M235i in manual and RWD guise is no slouch, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) of 5 seconds, but then again, the M2 is half a second faster.

The pricing strategy makes even more sense when you’re looking at how small the difference between the M2 and the M4 is in terms of performance and how big it is in pricing.

There’s nearly €16,000 at play here, and for it you get a car that is just 0.2 seconds faster overall and heavier at the same time. Sure, the M4 has all the tricks the M division could muster, like bespoke seats and a CFRP roof, but if you’re just into driving fast, the M2 sure makes a lot more sense.
