A WCF reader has sent us several official images of the upcoming BMW M235i Coupe.
We've seen the M235i Coupe earlier this week at a dealership presentation but today we bring official and more revealing photos of the model which show all the details of the first ever M-flavored 2-Series. The 1,470 kg (3,240 lbs) coupe looks more evolved and refined than its recently phased out predecessor (1-Series Coupe) and also distance itself (in a good way) from the facelifted hatchback.
The BMW M235i Coupe will adopt the same powertrain as its hot hatchback sibling, the M135i, a turbocharged straight-six 3.0-liter engine producing 322 bhp (240 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. When mated to the automatic gearbox, the car will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds while the manual-equipped model needs 5 seconds.
BMW will fully reveal the 2-Series Coupe tomorrow so stay tuned for additional info as they will probably show the M-infused version as well.
Special thanks go to eightythird for sending us the pics!
