Unveiled: The All-New BMW 2-Series Coupe

BMW has introduced an entirely new model series with the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupe, which replaces the old 1 Series Coupe as part of BMW’s new naming convention where even numbered model series designate coupes and odd numbered model series designate sedans.

The BMW 1 Series harkened back to BMW’s roots, a small lightweight car that was all about performance and staying true to the “Ultimate Driving Machine” motto. The current 3 Series has grown in size considerably since it’s introduction back in 1975, so the 1 Series was a welcomed addition for those purists looking for a smaller, more purposeful car like the BMW 2002.

There’s a HUGE press release which you can read on the following page, but the thing that stood out for us (besides the exterior changes) was the specs for the two models being offered. The 228i Coupe will deliver 240HP and 258lb-ft of torque from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the M235i Coupe will deliver 322HP and 332lb-ft of torque from a unique M Performance 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with TwinPower technology.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that both of these cars are beasts right out of the gate. The 228i Coupe has a 0-60 time of 5.4 seconds, while the M235i Coupe does it in 4.8 seconds!

The 2014 BMW 2 Series Coupe will make its world debut at the North American International Auto Show in January 2014, and I for one can’t wait to see it in the flesh. Until then, these photos will have to do:
