The M2 must be the real deal.
For an upcoming episode of Motor Trend's "Ignition," race car driver Randy Pobst got behind the wheel of the new BMW M2. Back in 2011, Pobst was one of the few people who did not like the 1 Series M. He actually said: "I hate this car." So what does Pobst have to say about BMW's latest M car? In an Instagram post about the video shoot, Pobst commented saying that the M2 was "my favorite BMW of the last ten years, and definitely in the spirit of the original E30 M3." Wow! That's high praise from a former hater.
Pobst added that the M2 is "quick and stable, and puts power down." Motor Trend also had an M4 to compare to the M2. It will be interesting to see which M car is better. We will have to wait until the Ignition episode airs to get the full review of the M2. Although chances are, the review is going to be positive.
