Late yesterday BMW South Africa accidentally revealed several new 2 Series models in all of their specifications glory via it’s online configurator. While there were no photos this leak does confirm what we all suspected in terms numbers. A couple of key things to note.
As expected N55′s output is 322 hp with 332 LB FT all down low in the rev range. However what’s particularly inrteresting is the weight. As we predicated, the M235i will be 133 lbs lighter than the 135i and 56 lbs lighter than the 1M. Despite this it’s both wider (1″) longer (3″) than the E82. This combined with a structure that’s more stiff than the E82 should yield better performance and times at the all important Nurburgring.
We’ll have much more on the 2 Series soon.
