The M2 is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, which churns out a whopping 453 horsepower and 406 pound-ft of torque. This is the same engine that is standard in M3s and M4s, though here it makes 20 fewer horsepower; its torque output is identical, however. All M2s are rear-wheel drive, and buyers can choose from either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. During testing, the M2 hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds while equipped with the standard six-speed manual transmission. It crossed a quarter-mile in 12.2 seconds at 118 mph. The eight-speed will likely be a little quicker. Of course, it wouldn’t be an M car without a specially tuned suspension and various other chassis enhancements that help it be the quickest version of the 2-series to circle a race circuit. We found the M2 to be nothing short of smile-inducing. Snapping into turns feels crispy, and the chassis actively helps to keep you in control, even over slight bumps and imperfections mid-corner. The M2 is just pure Bavarian muscle.
