As the M range moves higher up in price, the M2 puts its performance back in reach of mere mortals. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six that makes 365 hp and 343 lb-ft. A six-speed manual and rear-wheel drive are standard; a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is optional. Weight is reduced wherever possible, including 19-inch forged wheels shod with specially designed Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Beefy brakes aid stopping; BMW says 60 mph comes in 4.2 seconds with the automatic.
