The new BMW M2 CS is making the Internet rounds nowadays as the primary press automobiles are getting reviewed. The guys from CarWow determined to additionally placed on a present for us and arrange a drag race that includes the newest member of the CS household. However, the automobiles goes up in opposition to right here will not be its conventional rivals although. The M2 CS is a rear-wheel drive Coupe not a scorching hatch, alongside the traces of the Mercedes-AMG A45 S or the Audi RS3.
There was a RWD Coupe and two scorching hatches lining up at the beginning line. The specs are fairly shut although with one important distinction: the BMW is the one one with out all-wheel drive. And on the subject of drag racing over the 1/Four mile, that half is kind of essential. The M2 CS makes up for it by being the lightest of the three and having the quickest shifting gearbox however will that be sufficient?
On paper, the AMG A45 S looks like a favourite. It might have solely a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine beneath the hood but it surely develops 421 HP and 500 Nm. Since it additionally has a DCT gearbox to depend on, it’s going to be fairly quick. The Audi lining up right here is the oldest automobile within the race but it surely was tuned.
Therefore, the 2016 RS3 now makes 450 HP and 750 Nm of torque, which is so much, contemplating the dimensions of the engine beneath the hood. This matches the M2 CS by way of HP and beats it by 200 Nm on the subject of torque.
The largest concern with the M2 CS would be the launch from standstill. Being a rear-wheel drive automobile, placing it in movement with out lighting up the tires might be a difficult ordeal. Somehow although, Mat manages to maintain it collectively and the outcomes are very fascinating. I gained’t spoil the enjoyable of watching the races your self although.
