Drag racing: sporty BMW M2 CS vs luxury Bentley Flying Spur

November 21, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Can the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, which is a luxury sedan, overtake the high-performance BMW M2 CS coupe? The guys from the YouTube channel carwow tried to answer this question.

The BMW M2 CS is one of BMW’s most track-focused vehicles, combining the superior 2 Series platform with the powerful engine from the BMW M4 Competition. This tiny BMW M car has become a favorite among fast-driving enthusiasts due to its small size and responsive dynamics.

The BMW M2 CS is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six twin turbocharged engine that produces an impressive 444 horsepower (550 Nm).

This engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. The car received more efficient suspension settings, carbon-ceramic brakes and carbon fiber body panels, which helped to achieve weight savings.

Based on the specs of the BMW M2 CS, you might think the Bentley Continental Flying Spur has no chance of winning. It’s worth noting that the Continental Flying Spur is powered by a massive 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine that produces 626 horsepower (900 Nm). Power is transmitted through an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, which is in turn coupled to an all-wheel drive system. These characteristics are more like a supercar than a luxury car.

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur can be called a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” – its impressive dynamic performance does not match its luxurious appearance. The BMW M2 CS can look like it has a lot more performance and can easily win this and any other race like it.
