The introduction of a new BMW M model is always exciting, and even though this latest offering is at the entry level of the BMW lineup the excitement is still there. The M2 boasts an impressive 365 horsepower from its new turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine. Torque is rated at 343 lb-ft, but an overboost function bumps this to 369 lb-ft — good enough to push the new M2 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155 mph. A 6-speed manual transmission with rev matching is standard, but the M2 can also be equipped with a 7-speed M Double Clutch transmission which provides extremely quick shifts without need of a third pedal.
