    • S55 vs. B58 - BMW F87 M2 Competition vs. 2020 MKV Supra standing kilometer drag race

      It is in the opinion of BimmerBoost that the M2 Competition is clearly the superior performance car to the new Toyota Supra. It has the better engine in the S55 I6. It has the better transmission options as you can get a manual or a DCT rather than have an automatic forced on you.


      Perhaps most importantly, it is not a BMW pretending to be a Supra.

      The only thing the Supra has going for it is less weight but considering the M2 offers greater driver interaction and a far more powerful motor the extra weight is a small price to pay.

      How big is the difference in a real world drag race between the two though? Big. The M2 Competition demolishes it.

      The M2 Competition hits the kilometer marker 9/10's quicker. No contest.

        They are both $60k
        m2 2+2
        m2 is better looking

        What motivates someone to get the Supra over an M2 comp?

        I wish they would have called it something other than the Supra, seems to be doing the name a dis-justice so far. Like a hall of fame athlete coming out of retirement only to realize the competition has progressed, and he hasn't.
