[Video] BMW M4 and M2 CS on a Track Battle

After all the comments on the design of the new BMW M4, enthusiasts and car guys began looking at how good it is to drive. The new BMW M4 Competition is fascinatingly fast and a perfect driver’s car. It comes with improved steering, an impressive balance in the chassis, and fun driving with the weight and size. However, is it good enough to outdo the best of BMW – the BMW M2 CS? We will find that out in Mat Watson’s new video of the BMW M4 and M2 CS track battle from Mat Watson Cars.

Mat Watson showcases both the BMW M2 CS and the M4 Competition in a straight line and on tracks. Watson sits behind the wheels of the M2 CS first and laps it around a track as fast as he can. Then steps into the BMW M4 Competition and also drives it around in hopes that he can beat the M2’s set lap time. Both cars went head-to-head also in a straight line. Watson measures the 0-60 mph times of both models as well as their quarter-mile drive.

The new BMW M4 Competition comes packed with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged S58 inline-six engine. This newer engine gives it the advantage over the M2. It makes a crunchy horsepower of 503 (510PS) and 479 lb-ft of torque. Its engine matches with a rear-wheel-drive setup and an eight-speed auto. Moreover, its sibling BMW M2 CS gets an older 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged S55 inline-six engine. The M2 CS makes an impressive 444 horsepower (450 PS) and 406 lb-ft of torque and is less than the M4. This specific M2 CS in this video comes packed with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with a rear-wheel-drive setup. BMW claims that the BMW M4 is heavy. It does weigh more than the M2 CS, yet not as what BMW claimed.

Results are impressive as the BMW M4 aces in both tests. It is not that surprising in the M4 Competition. As it is a more powerful car built on a more capable and newer chassis. The M4 Competition is about a second faster on track than the M2 CS. It is also almost half a second faster to 100 km/h. However, both cars come with outstanding performances, yet which one gives a more enjoyable ride?
