This Subaru Impreza-inspired BMW M2 is a sight for sore eyes

Those wheels though

All right, this isn't the long-awaited BMW M2 CSL. It's a lick of paint and some new wheels. But we thought you'd like to see it, as it’s a very famous color scheme and one that likely inspires a few opinions.

So the blue 'n' gold we associate with Subaru Imprezas has been applied to the littlest M car, the punchy M2. If you need a reminder, its turbo straight-six sends 370hp to the rear wheels, endowing the wee coupe with a 249kph top speed and 4.5-second 0-100kph time.

The wheels are from Vossen--specifically, 20-inch examples of the smoothly named VPS-314T from the Forged Precision Series--while the paint appears to be BMW's own Long Beach Blue. You've no doubt seen it on M2s before, but adding gold wheels suddenly gives the whole thing a Germanic Impreza 22B look. Which we rather like.

It's also a prime excuse to waste some more time on Vossen's exhaustive online configurator. Don’t click the link if you have actual work to do…
