Official reveal on October 25

At a dealer presentation in an undisclosed location, one attendee was able to sneak some shots of the new BMW 2-Series ahead of its reveal on Friday. The M235i seen in these pictures isn’t supposed to be unwrapped until the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Under the hood is an improved twin turbocharged 3.0L engine (in the M235i) expected to have between 306 to 322 hp.

Expect the car to start hitting lots toward the end of the first quarter of 2014. It replaces the current 1-series coupe.
