How Does The BMW M2 Compare To Its Iconic 1M Coupe Predecessor?

When BMW launched the M2 last year, it didn’t have to only ensure that it was better than the M235i, but that it was fitting of the M badge and a suitable successor to the highly regarded 1M Coupe.

We’ve already discovered just how good the M2 is and now, Carfection has set out to discover how it compares to its predecessor in a wondrous video well worth watching for any gearheads, not just the BMW fanboys out there.

Separated by some four years, it’s not surprising that the two are quite distinct, so quickly is the auto industry continually evolving. At the core however, the duo are both designed to be dedicated driver’s cars and to offer incredible thrills for the price.

Both also include a twin-turbo straight six engine but in the M2, it pumps out 365 hp, some 30 hp more than the 1M Coupe. Nevertheless, the following video points out a few key differences between the cars which are certain to cause some debate.
