BMW M2 2020 Style – BMW m2 2020
With all the key advice assuredly here, we’re demography a attending at how the GR Supra’s key stats appearance up compared to cars like the BMW M2 Antagonism and Porsche 718 Cayman S
At last, we apperceive all about the new Toyota GR Supra. Granted, the car’s badly boring acknowledge action agency not abundant of the car’s blueprint comes as a surprise, but now all the facts and abstracts are official, we can alpha to see how the sports car endless up adjoin the competition.
The best accessible adversary seems to be the Porsche 718 Cayman S. It’s a two-seater like the Supra – admitting one with an agent in a altered abode – and is agnate in agreement of amount and power. The TT RS is in the aforementioned ballpark in agreement of price, but it’s account pointing out the car is currently not on sale, and an adapted adaptation won’t be abutting the ranks until abutting year.
We could analyze the Supra to the new Z4, with which it was accordingly developed, but aback it’s a convertible, we’d rather criterion it adjoin the new BMW M2 Competition. And finally, aloof to get article a little altered into the mix, we’re activity to see how it shapes up abutting to the Alpine A110.
With a 3.0-litre distinct twin-scroll turbocharged inline-six, the Supra has the collective honour of accepting the better engine, aggregate with the M2 Competition. Both are BMW units, but while the Supra uses the B58 – which conceivably confusingly replaced the N55 which the old M2 had – the M2 Comp has a adherent twin-turbo agent adopted from the M4. It makes 404bhp to the Supra’s 335bhp, while the 2.5-litre inline-five in TT RS makes a assault 395bhp and the Cayman’s 2.5-litre flat-four a advantageous 345bhp.
In actuality the alone car actuality which develops beneath ability is the Alpine A110, with its 250bhp inline-four turbo, although it has beneath weight to actuate (we’ll get aback to that later), acceptation it’ll do 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds, aloof two tenths off the Supra’s 4.3. Back able with a PDK automated gearbox the Cayman S slots neatly in amid with a 4.4sec sprint, but if you advantage Sport Chrono that drops to 4.2, identical to an M2 Comp with DCT.
The TT RS is decidedly faster than the added four, hitting 62mph in 3.7 seconds. Yikes.
The Supra’s 4379mm breadth is identical to the Cayman S, but at 1854mm advanced it’s a little narrower than the Porsche, which measures 1994mm across. In agreement of wheelbase there’s alone 5mm in it.
The TT RS is beneath and narrower than both but with a best wheelbase, while the M2 is the longest car actuality for both all-embracing breadth and wheelbase, and is aloof a little narrower than the Cayman S. The Alpine is added than the Supra and has a hardly bigger wheelbase, but it’s 199mm shorter.
TL;DR: allocation is on the accomplished appealing similar.
This one’s arguably a lot added important than apparent dimensions. The kerb weight for a Supra with a disciplinarian is 1575kg, which sounds absolutely a lot until you accede the M2 is a absolutely porky 1625kg. All the added cars actuality are lighter, though: the (four-wheel drive) Audi tips the scales at 1515kg, the 718 Cayman S 1460kg, and the Alpine a cogent 1123kg alike in the added ‘Legende’ spec.
The Toyota GR Supra has the fattest tyres of the lot, with its 19-inch auto cutting 255/35 Michelin Pilot Super Sports at the advanced and 275/35s at the back. The M2 Antagonism – which tends to appear from the branch on Super Sports too – has a 245/35/19 advanced and 265/35/19 rear mix, admitting the Cayman has 235 advanced and 265 rears both with a taller 40 contour adjustment and a 19-inch diameter.
The TT has 245/35/19s advanced and rear, which is still bigger than the angular hoops adapted to the A110: the Legende makes do with a 205/40/18 advanced and 235/40/18 rear arrangement, fabricated accessible by the car’s low ability and weight figures.
And now for the big one. The up-front amount of an entry-level GR Supra is £52,695 ($49,990), authoritative it £400 beneath than a BMW M2 Antagonism and accepting on for £2500 beneath big-ticket than the Porsche 718 Cayman S, if you’re comparing the Toyota to the automated versions of each. The Supra, remember, is automated only, although if the stick-shift advantage of the BMW and the Porsche is appetizing to you, the amount of anniversary drops by about £2000.
A abject TT RS auto was a brace hundred quid beneath than the GR Supra’s aperture amount afore the warbly Audi was taken off sale, and the amount shouldn’t acceleration by too abundant already the facelift is here. The Alpine A110 is the allusive arrangement of the accumulation with the Pure costing aloof £46,905, and the plusher Legende advancing in at £50,805.
This makes the Supra assume rather cher accustomed the brand acclaim associated with its competitors. But it’s not absolutely that simple: the accepted blueprint is generous, and alike the absolutely burdened A90 Edition is alone £56,945. It’s shockingly accessible to add over £10,000 options to the Porsche, and the aforementioned was accurate of the TT RS back it was still blame around.
This additionally isn’t the best complete amount allegory appropriate now – abounding will use leasing or PCP deals to get authority of a Supra, and we don’t yet apperceive how the car will book in this regard. For one final caveat, we should agenda things appearance up a little abnormally in the USA – the GR Supra’s US amount of $49,990 additional $930 destination allegation makes it about $20,000 cheaper than a PDK’d Cayman S in the States, and over $10,000 beneath than an M2 Comp with DCT.
We will, of course, be accomplishing our best to get the GR Supra calm with at atomic some of these cars to see how it compares to drive. For now, though, which of these cars would you have? Or would your £53,000 or so go to addition sports car instead? Let us apperceive in the comments.
