By now you’ve probably read our report on the new BMW 2 Series Coupe and M235i, and seen the complete official gallery of Munich’s latest. But words and pictures can only tell you so much, especially when it comes to such an intricate design as this new coupe.

These two videos would complete the story. The clip above explains the design and dynamic attributes of BMW’s first 2 Series, including a demonstration of the coupe’s easy-to-use Launch Control. Getting the BMW M235i Coupe from 0-100 km/h in under five seconds really is as easy as one, two and three.

The Launchfilm below showcases the top-of-the-range M Performance model’s gorgeous looks and handling abilities. Who would have thought that such a desirable model could be spawned off the dowdy F20 1 Series range?

If you still prefer to look at static pictures, enjoy the BMW M235i Coupe gallery below, or check out the standard 2 Series Coupe range here.
