Discussion in '1M and M2' started by Henry 145, Aug 25, 2019.
What an interesting read, but I wonder if this is better:
I drove it last week, didn’t get a chance to really lean on it, but down some off camber, bumpy roads, the car quickly inspires confidence and is immense fun!
WTF the wheel arch extensions?!
It doesn’t photograph well, looks pretty decent in the flesh, but maybe not to everyone’s taste!
M235iR copies by the looks of them.
Great share .
I personally don't like it as it looks so CRASS the way they have just stuck the wheel arch extensions on .
It does not hide the fact it still looks like a m240i
A better option would be to buy a regular M2 comp and lightly mod it
£80k is a huge amount to spend and gets a lot of car
Or just wait for the limited edition M2CS which comes out in March next year.
Or just buy a gt4. Anyone who spends that much on a m2 is mental.
Its certainly a very specific bit of kit, it has been built to be a real drivers car and its abilities certainly outweigh its badge, but its badge or perception as an M240i is what makes it a tough sell.
Agree with the look in the pictures, but in the flesh it is much better, although retains a real motorsport feel and is a bit of homage to classic M products of the past. It is not for everyone to look at, but I urge any driving purist to get a drive in it, not to buy it, but just to understand what can be achieved in terms of handling for a fast road and track car with the right hardware and setup. I am sure you will also agree with me and ask why it doesn't have a manual in it, which it now can apparently!
