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.
