This video gives us a detailed view of the BMW M2 and the M4 with the BMW Performance Parts on the Bugatti circuit of Le Mans. As you will learn in the video below, these vehicles showcase a similar, somewhat understated sound, with a decent growl.
Some still miss the good ol’ days of naturally aspirated V8 engines or a straight-sixes powering the BMW M3, but, as much as we like the sound of older engines, one can only appreciate the powerful and torque happy BMW TwinPower Turbo engines. These, in true fairness, make an evolutionary leap forward over the older, naturally aspirated engines – in both power delivery and fuel economy as well.
The M2 comes with a 3.0-liter straight-six engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The M2 makes 370 horsepower and will accelerate it to 62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.3 seconds when optioned out with the advanced and fast seven-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission system.
The M4 is powered by a 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, delivering 425 horsepower and it can propel the vehicle from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds, if the M4 is specced out with the DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). Therefore, both vehicles come with a similar engine, close to same power levels and output, joined by almost the same acceleration numbers. Tough choice, isn’t it?
The BMW M2 retails for $51,700 and the BMW M4 starts at $65,700 MSRP for the base model. How do they stack up in exhaust sound note? Check that out in the video below.
