Let’s start with the BMW 1M Coupe. It has a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six engine putting out 340hp and 500Nm of torque. This is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, and it’s the lightest car here at 1,495kg. When it was new, the 1M would’ve cost you £40,020.
Next up we have the first BMW M2. It has a 3.0-litre straight-six engine, however it’s just got one turbo as opposed to the two you get in the 1M. It’s still more powerful though, producing 370hp and 500Nm of torque. The car we have here is fitted with a seven-speed automatic gearbox sending power to the rear wheels, and the M2 tips the scales at 1,520kg. Back in the day, this car cost someone £44,070.
Then we have the BMW M2 Competition with its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six. It has 410hp and 550Nm of torque, sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed automatic gearbox. It’s slightly heavier than the standard M2 at 1,575kg, and it was a bit more expensive as well at £49,285.
Now we come to the BMW M2 CS. It has the same 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six a the Competition, however it puts out 450hp and 550Nm of torque. This is sent to the rear wheels in this case by a six-speed manual gearbox, and it’s slightly lighter than the Competition at 1,550kg. The price for this when new was £75,320.
Finally, we have the all-new BMW M2. Under the bonnet is a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six with 460hp and 550Nm of torque. It’s the only car here with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, but it still has rear-wheel-drive. It’s also the heaviest car here, weighing in at 1,725kg. To buy one of these cars new will cost you ££64,890.
