First Video of the 2014 BMW M235i Shows Up Online

Now that we know everything about the new 2 Series from BMW, it's time to take a break and watch it in more than just pictures. The Bavarians launched their first video of the new 2er and we're proudly bringing it to you.

The clip shows the M235i model in all its glory. For those of you that didn't already know it, this is the most powerful car in the 2 Series line-up and will be making its way across the Atlantic from Germany starting with March 2014.

Unlike the other M Performance vehicles that are using the N55 engine, this one will have more power reaching a peak level of 326 HP instead of 320 HP, as we've been getting used to. As far as torque goes, 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) should be enough for a car that is lighter than its M135i Hatchback brother.

The 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint will be done in 4.8 seconds with the automatic 8-speed gearbox that has Launch Control whilst doing the same with the 6-speed manual will take 0.2 seconds more.

Everything sounds incredibly good right now but until we actually drive the car we can't emit any kind of opinion. From a visual standpoint, though, this Coupe looks amazing, as you're about to see.
