DRIV­ING

GQ (Australia) - - MOTOR -

As hu­mans have grown ever taller and fat­ter, cars – even sports cars – have fol­lowed the trend, to the point where the lat­est M4 is a hulk­ing beast that feels as hefty as it does pow­er­ful. The M2, how­ever, takes us back to a lighter, brighter time, when the in­her­ent bal­ance of BMWS was part of their bril­liance. Ev­ery­thing about this car feels right, from the weight of the steer­ing to the way it han­dles cor­ners, and the way it ac­cel­er­ates, and stops. On a race­track, it’s a wide-faced grin, with plenty of tail-slid­ing ac­tion if you want it. On the road, it’s sharp, but not so much that you’d cut your­self. ‘Pure’ is the one word that comes to mind, again and again.
