BMW M2 Convertible in the works?


Earlier this year BMW ruled out a convertible version of the M2. However, what seems like official photos of the open top M2 have been leaked online by Dutch publication Auto Blog. The images appear to be from a BMW brochure or an online configurator and give a front and a rear quarter view of the M2 convertible.

Given the success of the M2 coupe, it seems BMW have now got a business case stacked up for a drop-top M2, which if launched, will rival the Audi TT RS roadster.

Retaining the flared fenders and aggressive lines of the coupe, the M2 convertible is expected to feature a fabric roof that can be operated at the touch of a button. If the standard BMW 2 Series Cabriolet is of any indication, we expect the M2 convertible to be some 142kg heavier than the coupe variant.


The 272kW/465Nm 3.0-litre turbocharged straight-six engine from the coupe will be carried over to the convertible, along with the 7-speed double clutch transmission or 6-speed manual. While the coupe sprints to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds, expect the heavier convertible to take a fraction longer.

Nothing is official so far but there’s a good chance we will see the M2 convertible arriving as soon as in the second half of 2017.
