The official presentation of the Bavarian novelty will be held in September this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show (Germany).

The Bavarian BMW brand is working hard on the prototypes of its 4-door coupe BMW 2-Series. This model is essentially a more elegant version of the 1-Series sedan. “Spy” photos of this long-awaited news were published by foreign publications a few minutes ago.

Despite its front-wheel drive nature, it seems that the Gran Coupe 2-Series is quite a frisky machine, although the slippery surface helps the car to effectively make turns.

Keep in mind that this is not just a regular version of the upcoming BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe – the prototype looks very much like the more powerful performance of the M235i, which will receive a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine from the X2 M35i crossover. Motor power is expected to be within 302 horsepower (450 Nm of torque), and it will work with an 8-speed “automatic” and all-wheel drive xDrive. In the case of the crossover, it takes 4.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, but obviously the new Gran Coupe will be able to cope with this task faster.

Speaking of xDrive all-wheel drive, it is believed that the model will be sold in the United States exclusively in the all-wheel-drive layout, while versions with front-wheel drive will be available in Europe. Rumor has it that the model should go on sale almost immediately after its world premiere in September of this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

In conclusion, it is worth noting that this is not the only Gran Coupe over which BMW is working now, given that the Grand Coupe of the flagship 8th series will be presented very soon.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the first photos of the new BMW M2 CS appeared on the Web.
