BMW M2 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but BMW M2 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, M2 zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing M2 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your BMW M2 engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

Let's take the imaginary set of criteria for car shopping. You would like:
More than 400 horsepower;
Coupe with agile handling and decent-size back seat;
An available manual transmission;
Uncommon, so you realize you have something special;
An original MSRP that is not more than 60,000 dollars fresh.

There is already a good range of automobiles that follow each of these standards. But do they all follow those criteria? Your searching will finish at the 2020 BMW M2 Competition.

Indeed, our list criteria are exact, maybe close to attempting to apply for the Olympics. (Oh, what were you only 0.0002 seconds slower than the previous athlete? Unfortunately, you are out of the team). But we're just glad the M2 Competition exists. BMW is just a reflective line-up of consumer wishes, filled with X-mark SUVs and four-door derivatives from Gran Coupe. However close it might be to give a classic BMW Handling Magic, a small two-door coupe is no longer a significant pull.

But this is part of the appeal of the niche. BMW certainly helped out the last year's M2 by making other updates and dubbed it the M2 Competition. These included a new motor, stronger brakes, more sport front seats, and excellent exterior design improvements that go hand and hand with pre-existing two series M modifications. The M2 is fairly unchanged this year. The backlights look a little bit darker. Is it awesome?

Here's a few downsides. The ride's quality is very firm, and BMW has no adjustable suspension (as with, say, the M3 and M4) to make it more livable. BMW does not provide you with anything in customization, whether it is color or interior upholstery or trimming. Relax some of the mentioned criteria, and you will get Audi RS 3, Ford Schelby GT350, or the latest M340i 3 series. In general, however, we assume you would enjoy M2, 2020.

If anything like this size has 405 horsepower, you know it will be fast. We saw 60 in 4.6 seconds with the manual of six speeds. In 12.7 seconds, the quarter-mile went on at 110.9 mph. This engine's strength is broad and muscular, such that a decent road with a few gears can be easily targeted.

The limit of handling is strong, but the M2 becomes troublesome. The advanced hand is required to make its best since the chassis is keen to transform but can be twitchy on less ideal routes. The brakes are a little bit loud but still have a solid halt. Our M2 test car halted at 60 mph at 108 feet in our testing. With its easy clutch takeup and special rev-matching feature, the M2 can even do the regular slog. There is a demerit only in a broad turning radius.

The 2020 BMW M2 Competition is a high-performance rear-wheel-drive coupe, available only in one trim level: the Competition. Most of the features are expected, and only a few packages and choices are usable. The hood has a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder (405 horsepower, 406 lb-ft of torque), attached to a manual with six speeds. Auto transmission with a seven-speed dual-clutch is additional.

The BMW M2 comes with such standard features as 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, ignition and entry without a key, mirrors with auto-dimming, leather upholstery, carbon-fiber interior trim, and power-adjustable M heated sport front seats. The infotainment system consists of an 8.8-inch central monitor, navigation setup, a Harman Kardon sound system with twelve speakers, and Apple CarPlay (subscription-based). As for the safety options, the BMW M2 can offer alerts of forward collision and mitigation, automatic emergency braking, warning of lane departure, front and rear Parktronic.

But this list of offered options is not full. You can also add the Executive kit that includes a steering wheel with heating, adaptive LED headlights, automatic high beams, information on speed limits, a charging pad without wire, a Wi-Fi hotspot. The M Driver's kit raises the velocity of the M2 from 155 mph to 174 mph and offers one day of instruction in a high-performance BMW driving academy. A sunroof is accessible as a separate option.

With a wide range of standard equipment available for BMW, the key choice is to use the standard manual transmission with six speeds and the optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The automatic offers quicker acceleration and effortless cruising - perfect if you are often in traffic - while the manual provides a more exciting and fun driving experience. Get the manual if you want the M2 in its purest form. None of the options available are needed, but the M Driver kit will be preferred.
