The BMW 2 Series Coupé and Cabrio are luxury compact coupés andconvertibles produced by German manufacturer BMW since 2013; they are part of the 2 Series lineup. Although it is the successor of the 1-Series coupé, it is continuing the BMW 02 coupés as a successor in that segment. The name, 2-Series, is based on BMW's rationalization of its model designations reserving odd numbers for 4-door sedans and even numbers for 2-door coupés and coupé-like cars. At launch, there are the basic models 218d, 220d, 220i, 225d, 228i, and the M235i internationally. From 2016, the range-topping M2 will also be available, as a coupé only.

BMW M2 (F87) Edit

In October 2015, BMW revealed the new flagship 2-Series, the M2. It is an indirect successor to the 1-Series M Coupé. The M2 Coupé will begin production in late 2015 and go on sale in the UK in April 2016, and will be making its world debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The car is powered by the BMW N55 engine, tuned for 370 PS (272 kW; 365 bhp). With the 6-speed manual gearbox, the M2 will accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds, or 4.3 seconds if equipped with the 7-speed DCT automatic. The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but the limiter can be raised to 270 km/h (168 mph) as an option. Although a convertible M2 is rumored for production, only a coupé variant has been confirmed.
