The BMW 2-Series has been out for just over two minutes, and it’s already had its top digitally chopped off by the Hungarian automotive photo manipulator at X-Tomi Design. Only one angle is available, showing the rear left three-quarter view of the now topless 2-Series, and if you liked the shape of the coupe, you’ll have no trouble with this new one.
In fact, since the car is not particularly long, being exactly 20 cm / 7.9 in, shorter than a 4-Series (in both wheelbase and overall span), yet standing a bit taller, and having a less steeply raked windscreen, it’s not as sleek as the larger model.
However, once the top is stowed away, I think it harks back to the old E30 3-Series (from the rear, at least), and as a prospect promises to be a small, fun drop-top BMW that you’d also want to be seen in – the previous model had the same basic qualities, but it was not visually appealing in any way.
Looking at this picture, which kind of roof would you think would work best for it: a cloth-or a retractable hard-top?
