Here we go, Bimmer fans … It's time for every BMW M2 to take on over the quarter-mile! We've got our hands on the original BMW M2, the BMW M2 Competition, the BMW M2 CS and the New BMW M2 to see which is the quarter-mile king! Not just that, we've got our hands on the automobile that motivated them all – the BMW 1M Coupe!
So let's see how they stack up. Starting with the 1M Coupe, it's powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six that can produce 340hp and 500Nm of torque. Power is sent out to the rear wheels through a 6-speed manual gearbox, and the car weighs in at 1,495 kg.
Next up we have the original BMW M2. It's powered by a 3-litre turbocharged straight-six, and it can put down 370hp and 500Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a dual-clutch automated transmission, and it ideas the scales at 1,520 kg.
Then we have the BMW M2 Competitors. With a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet, it can put down 410hp and 550Nm, and power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual-clutch automated gearbox. It's the heaviest cars and truck in the very first race, weighing 1,575 kg.
Then we have the vehicles for the second race. Starting with the BMW M2 CS, it's housing a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet, and it can put down 450hp and 550Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 6-speed handbook transmission, and it can be found in lighter than the M2 Compensation, at 1,550 kg.
Then lastly we have the latest BMW M2. It's got a (you guessed it …) 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet, and it's the most effective vehicle here, putting down 460hp and 550Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels by means of a 7-speed automated transmission, and it's a lot much heavier than the other cars and trucks, weighing in at 1,725 kg.
So will the brand-new M2 beat them all? Or will the extra weight work against it? There's only one way to learn for sure … LET'S RACE!
