    The M2 is not a drag racer, should know that by now.

    If I had a £ for everytime these Magazine reviewers ( Not just this one ) used launch control on these performance BMWs I'd be a millionaire!

    M2 driver suuuuuuucked off the line. He lost the race in the first 100 feet.

    Porsche has the advantage of being mid-engined which gives it extra grip off the line. BMW was launched like shit too.
    Anyway, these cars are not about straight-line performance (even if they're very fast).

    The Porsche won thx to it's mid engine configuration. Simple!


    Would have been awesome if there were from 60ft and 1/4mile figures. Nevertheless awesome video..

    Race starts at 1:53

    Next time dont use launch control and moderate the start yourself to avoid wheelspin in the m2?

    Should of had the roof up on the Boxster as less drag would've increased the winning margin. Still I would never buy a Porsche with a 4 cylinder turbo engine!
