Autoleaks: BMW M2 Specs, Colors Revealed In Forum
Via a forum member’s inside sources, specs and colors for the upcoming BMW M2 have made their way onto the Internet.
2 Addicts member Dackelone posted info on what colors would be available at launch in November, as well as what to expect out of the N55 3.0-liter turbocharged I6 under the bonnet, AutoGuide reports.
Based on Dackelone’s sources “deep within BMW HQ,” the N55 — used in a number of BMW models since 2009 — will put 365 horses and 343 lb-ft of torque to the back, and has an “over boost” feature good for 25 lb-ft of extra torque throughout the low- to mid-range within the RPM band.
As for the colors, only four will be available at the start: Alpine White, Black Sapphire metallic, Long Beach Blue metallic, and Mineral Grey metallic. Other colors may turn up later, though Dackelone is collecting suggestions via poll.

Every M series car should be available in that fabulous Estoril Blue. In fact, every BMW, no, every car, no, every car and toothbrush should be available in BMW Estoril Blue.
With base MSRPs starting in the same neighbourhood I'd take the ATS-V coupe any damn day of the week over the M2.
Is that an official picture from BMW? Horrible background choice.
I love the teal blue of the e46 M3 and the baby blue of the E39 M5. If a $25k 2.0T Sonata, Fusion, Buick, or Subaru makes 137HP/liter why does a BMW M2 only make (a still awesome) 121hp? 137HP per liter * 3.0 liters = 411HP. Is that not reasonable in a $50k plus car? Also $28k 2.3 mustang make more per liter then a CTS-V, or most other cars. Just saying lower the prices for less HP.
