BMW M2 Competition Gives You The Best Bang For Your Buck

For almost $59,000 in the United States, you can get the BMW M2 Competition and save roughly $10,000 over the M4 and nearly $7,000 over the outgoing M3.

The Porsche 718 Cayman, which is one of its direct rivals, starts at $56,900, and cuts back on power. Ut gas 300 hp compared to the 405 hp in the M2 Competition, and does the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.9 seconds, or 4.5 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package, which is 0.9 sec and 0.5 sec, respectively, slower than the Bimmer.

But the M2 Competition is not only more affordable than the 718 Cayman; it’s also extremely fun to drive. And as proved by the numerous video reviewssince it broke cover in April, it’s definitely one of the best small sports cars money can buy today. The only question is, should one opt for the Alpine A110 instead?

In the following clip, the driver brings out the best in the M2 Competition. Power sliding, revving, short acceleration bursts and more should be enough to make those looking for a fun to drive sports car and can afford it put down a deposit.

    At near $70k, the interior and wheels should be much much nicer. But, it does look like a total blast to drive.

    I like how conveniently left out the Corvette (Z51) is. It is faster than both cars mentioned around track and in a straight line- and is a real joy to drive. Yes, the interior isn’t quite as well put together but it’s definitely not cheap. I’d take the Vette over both as I’ve driven at least the m2 and a grand sport, I know the grand sport is bit necessarily the same car, the engine is and man. That note alone would sell me over the m2. That’s just the thing that’s missing the most for me, and I own an f30 and an e90!
