Even yet a BMW M2 was usually launched final month, a foe was already watchful for it. The new M automobile was, welcomed to a lane by cars that wouldn’t routinely be deliberate a approach rivals, like for instance a Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, a Audi RS3 and a Honda Civic Type R. The guys from Cars South Africa motionless to chuck these 4 super sporty cars in a array to see that one takes a win.
On a energy front, a Honda is a lowest rated automobile here. With 310 HP and 2-liter four-cylinder turbocharged indent underneath a hood, a Type-R is also a usually front-wheel drive, primer automobile on a track. Even so, it comes with a important explain of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds. All things considered, even yet it came in final in this comparison, it fared a lot improved than many expected.
The Audi RS3 has a somewhat bigger engine and advantages from all-wheel drive. Its 2.5-liter turbocharged engine creates 367 HP and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, a figure that allows it to strech 100 km/h (62 mph) from delay in usually 4.3 seconds. That’s usually 0.1 seconds slower than what a A45 AMG claims with a 381 HP 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged mill. The Merc too is all-wheel expostulate and has a slight advantage on a torque front with 475 Nm (350 lb-ft).
Last, though not least, a M2 comes prepared with a 3-liter true 6 turbo indent that creates 370 HP and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque bending adult to a normal rear-wheel expostulate setup around a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Thanks to overboost, a M automobile can rest on 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque for brief durations of time, a pretence that might infer to be a ace in a sleeve in such track-held events.
With a claimed 0-62 mph (100 km/h) scurry time of 4.3 seconds, it’s not a fastest automobile off a line here due to a RWD setup though afterwards again, winning such a foe doesn’t always rest on acceleration figures. Let’s see what happened.
