the calculation tool allows a selection for all wheel drive which I chose. agreed on the QM 123-124 traps… for a near 5000 lb car this is very impressive indeed.

Motor Trend 2019 Best Driver’s Car Rankings For M2 Competition and M850i

Not a bad showing for the M2:

Motor Trend overall ranking:
Link: https://www.motortrend.com/news/2019…-car-rankings/

1. Porsche 911 Carrera S
2. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
3. BMW M2 Competition

Frolicky, pointy, planted, and confident, this is the perfect first-timer’s track car. You can tailor throttle response, shift firmness, and steering feel. The Bimmer prefers fast sweepers to tight twisties, but it can live all day at the on-limit nirvana. It’s down on power compared to the competition, and it’s oddly slower than the Supra at Laguna Seca.

4. Jaguar XE SV Project 8
5. McLaren Senna
6. Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S
7. Aston Martin DBS Superleggera
8. Bentley Continental GT V8
9. Lamborghini Urus
10. BMW M850i XDrive Coupe

The Bimmer delivers a great engine note, it drives small for a big car, and it has fantastic predictability around Laguna Seca. But its steering feel is distant and synthetic, the suspension sometimes struggles to keep pace with the engine’s performance, and the agility afforded by the rear-steer system makes the back end twitchy.

11. Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye
12. Toyota GR Supra
