The BMW M2 has been praised by some as the purist M car that BMW currently makes. It’s well regarded for hooning about a bit and for carving its way around a track or twisties, but how would it do in a straight line against a formidably powerful opponent such as the 2017 Camaro SS?
On paper, we’re looking at a 3.0L turbo 6 cylinder powered M2 with 365hp / 343lb-ft which officially covers 0-60 in 4.1 seconds (DCT) versus the 2017 Camaro SS with its naturally aspirated V8 outputting 455hp / 455 lb-ft and covering the 0-60 in 4.0 seconds (auto).
