German magazine Auto Zeitung took the new BMW M2 to Hockenheim for their regular instrumented test. Weighing 1520 kilograms, the DCT-equipped M2 ran the standard sprint in 4.2 seconds, while the 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h), the “baby-M” needed only 14.9 seconds. But more impressive was the Hockenheim lap – 1:13.2 minutes. The figure is even more impressive when compared with the limited edition BMW E90 M3 CRT which ran the same circuit in 1:13.6 minutes.

The fastest BMW on Hockenheim is still the AC Schnitzer ACS4 Sport – based on the BMW F82 M4 – with a recorded lap time of 1:09.5 minutes. BMW’s “standard” M4 recorded 1:12.80 minutes.

The M4 has an absolute powerhouse underneath its low-slung hood. A twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-six engine makes 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque, compared to the M2’s single turbocharged 3.0 liter I6 engine that makes 370 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. A 55 hp difference is big, however, the M4 weighs about a hundred kilograms more at around 1632 kg.

In the same instrumented test, the BMW M2 has shown a fuel consumption of 12.8 liter per 100 km, the equivalent of 18.3 MPG.
