BMW’s M-town was in Malaysia recently and Adrian and Eu Jin was given the opportunity to drive, sorry, I meant trash the BMW M5 and M2 Competition around Sepang International Circuit!
Unfortunately, both of them just had their lunch about five minutes before the drive, and guess what happened after experiencing the G-forces from the twists and turns of the track…
As a recap, the F90 BMW M5 is powered by a 4.4-litre TwinPower Turbo V8, pushing 600 hp and 750 Nm through an 8-speed ZF gearbox. The M5 is equipped with an all-wheel-drive system, but you can switch it to just the rear wheels for some sliding fun!
As for the M2 Competition, a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged in-line six (shared with the M3 and M4, albeit detuned) develops 410 hp and 550 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed M dual clutch transmission, or a 6-speed manual for the keen drivers.
