A lot of us have been desperately waiting for the release of the 2016 BMW M2. What’s not to love about it? A 3.0-liter, inline-six that puts out 365 horsepower, a six-speed manual transmission, a 4.4-second sprint to 60 mph, and a top speed of 155 mph – it’s everything a Bimmer enthusiast could want. Its release isn’t scheduled until early 2016, but thanks to the newest addition to the Need for Speed franchise, gamers will get a chance to see just what the M2 can do before the car even makes it to the dealership.

In the newest trailer video for Need for Speed, the new M2 makes its debut, and boy is she beautiful. The video is barely a minute long, but in that minute, the M2 shows its other M-series siblings just what it is made of. According to the video description, the M2 is available from the start of the game and plays a significant role throughout the game’s storyline as well. The M2 is rumored to be priced around $51,000 when it is released here in the U.S., so you better plan on spending just about every bit of startup cash you have to start with it in the game, but that’s okay. With the M2’s specs, it won’t take long at all to build up a bankroll and hit that customization garage they teased us with a couple weeks ago. I can’t wait. How about you?

Need For Speed will be released on November 3rd, 2015.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
