What Car? says...

The BMW M2 is effectively a steroid-enhanced version of the 2 Series. Under the bonnet lies a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six engine that pumps out 365bhp – enough for a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. The optional DCT automatic version is even faster.

Those swollen wheelarches in all four corners aren't just for show; they allow the fitment of suspension components from the pricier BMW M4, and while the M2 may not be as quick as that car, its lower handling limits make it even more fun at legal road speeds.

But is the BMW M2 the best sports car for the money, or would you be better off spendning your hard-earned cash on a Porsche Cayman or an Audi RS3? Read on over the next few pages to find out.
