Becoming One With The BMW M2 – A Transcendental Exercise

Time behind the wheel of the 2016 BMW M2 is transformational. You can review a car by the numbers or you can review a car by the seat of your pants. For me to tell you that the M2 produces 365 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque becomes a tedious exercise in trying to prove something that only has meaning when it's experienced first hand.
After all, a Ford Mustang GT makes 435 horsepower, and a Dodge Challenger Hellcat is beastly powerful with 707 horsepower, but neither make me feel the same exhilaration I have felt the past week every time I've been at the wheel of the M2. This is a car that flirts with nirvana.
