It seems to be just like the Web has a brand new favourite couple nowadays. The Toyota Supra and the BMW M2 Competitors have been forming a pair for fairly a while now with various magazines testing the 2 on the similar time.

The BMW Z4 M40i has apparently quietly retired into the shadows.
On this newest episode of the Supra vs M2 saga, we get to see the fellows from CarMag in South Africa placing them to the take a look at in a drag race. Nothing we haven’t seen earlier than, to be sincere, however this time, the race is nearer than ever. Trying on the specs, you’d discover it arduous to imagine that the Supra might sustain with the BMW. In any case, there’s a 70 HP distinction between them, to not point out the torque and gearbox.
Nonetheless, the rationale why the Supra is able to beating the Z4 and maintaining with the M2 Competitors is that the Japanese are doubtless understating their horsepower figures. Having a look on the footage under you’ll quickly understand that there is likely to be greater than 335 HP below the hood.

The BMW M2 struggles a bit off the road because the S55 unit has extra torque down low and placing it down by way of the rear axle is a bit trickier. As soon as they get going although, the higher numbers of the BMW M2 Competitors’s engine and the quicker 7-speed DCT gearbox make it a winner.
