Car of the month - BMW M2
The BMW M2, a final holdover from BMW's storied history of
producing two-door saloon cars with a six-cylinder engine
driving the rear wheels through a six-speed manual
transmission. Except for the BMW M2, where such
combination of features was formerly the norm for
performance car fans. When it comes to maximum
performance, the word "compromise" is a curse, but fear not:
the BMW M2 doesn't require a quarter.
This beefed-up coupe badass has a meaner nose and wider hips
than the ordinary BMW 2-series, as well as a chassis optimised
for attacking racetracks and a more powerful engine.
Straightaways are devoured by the hard-charging, highrevving
twin-turbo straight-six. The Competition comes with
the correct S55 engine, improved suspension, and a slew of
additional tweaks geared at making the M2 a true successor to
not only the outstanding BMW 1 M Coupe, but also its historical
forerunner, the E30 M3.
The M2's snarling twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six engine is a
charmer, producing 405 horsepower and 550Nm of torque. A
six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch
automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels. As
you rev it to the 7600-rpm redline, the engine pushes the M2
with unfettered intensity, giving you stomach butterflies.
Those who are ready to put up with the abuse on the street will
be rewarded with absolute bliss on the track. With deliciously
aggressive propulsion and a clairvoyant chassis, the M2
handles like an extension of its driver. Aside from the rough
ride, the M2 is a fantastic driver's car. It's not quite as quick as
the M3 or M4, but it's certainly more enjoyable.
