On a racetrack, we know that the new BMW M2 is a serious threat to its bigger brother, the M4. Thanks to its smaller size and lighter overall weight, its competency has surprised and stunned many especially considering how much cheaper than an M4 it is.
Unlike the M4, the new baby M car isn’t available in a number of different performance guises just yet, so if M4 customers want to show owners of the lesser model what’s what, the Competition Package is the way to go. But does this option actually make the M4 all that much faster than the M2 or even its predecessor, the 1M Coupe?
On paper, it should. Thanks to its tuned twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine, the M4 Competition Package has 444 hp on tap and 550 Nm of torque. That’s well above the 365 hp of the M2 and almost 110 hp above and beyond the 1M Coupe.
So on a tight and twisty track, it should absolutely demolish its smaller siblings. But does it?
