The real scary thing is, an M version of the 2-Series Active Tourer is not even that far from reality. BMW has not announced any intention to build such a model but considering the M badge is basically for sale these days there is actually a chance for this car to get an M version. BMW would likely defend it by stating it would be the perfect rival for the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG.
BMW has not completely lost their minds yet so nothing like this will come about hopefully. However, this rendering even existing shows that the thought has already popped into someone's head. It likely has popped into someone's head at BMW as well then. If BMW wants to spit on the last bit of their pride and heritage that remains unblemished, this would be the perfect car to do it with.
