The M2 also can carry 4 people decently... in sure that's not on the stat sheet. Just saw an M2 yesterday in the M sport blue... gosh so nice. But honestly if it were money getting either couldn't ever be wrong. It's too bad they don't sell right hand drive vettes

Corvette beats it on all tracks by a substantial margin also quickest by a substantial margin. 0-60 3.9 to 4.2, 0-100 8.6 to 9.9, 0-150 21 to 27.
Braking 60-0 93 ft vs 107ft. Corvette is best handling, quickest and fastest by a considerable margin. Let's get real.

The Vette has twice the dsplacement. Actually pretty pathetic, considering the little Bimmer weighs more too. At the end of the day, the BMW is obviously the better, more sorted out machine. Imagine if it had more horses...

Its pretty pathetic that you actually think cylinders make a difference..

How is it obviously better? More sorted?! When its perfomance in a straight line is superior and at the tracks! Your a clown, its not even the top end vette! M2 is one of their best!....imagine if it was against z06 or zr1 hhhhmmmm

A 3L engine running the 1-1.1Bar of boost that the M2 is specified with is being fed about 6-6.3L worth of air.

Their weight is almost identical. The M2 Competition weighs 2lbs more...
