When you have one of the best engines in the world and need somewhere else to stick it, why not the BMW M2 Competition?
THE gods in Bavaria have sharpened their knives and bestowed upon us another gift in the form of the M2 Competition.
Part of the magic in this baby M car is down to the creamy straight-6 inside the engine bay, now stiffened with a carbon fibre brace for better handling.
BMW has plonked the 3-litre twin-turbo from the M3 and M4 into the M2 Competition, giving it 410hp and 550Nm of torque. That means 40 more horses and 85 more Newtonmetres of twist than the old M2.
That launches the pocket rocket to 100km/h in 4.2 seconds, one-tenth of a second quicker than the prior model.
Pert proportions give the car instant desirability (and also stir up naughty notions as to how you’d treat it later).
Downturned front “fangs”, paired with the darkened kidney grille, menace other lesser cars, while sculpted wing mirrors and bespoke wheels round off the racy look.
