Not with the new M2, there is near universal agreement that thing looks dreadful. Only people that disagree are those paid by BMW or have eyesight like Stevie Wonder.
I would have one in black. That hides pretty much everything.

The BMW M2 is just a beast out the box. The MKV Supra is just waiting to be modified (after unlocking the ECU), and it becomes a beast. The Dark Horse is a nice, chill cruiser. Don't care for the other car.

Big oof. With 500+ Horsepower
Looks like if you want the 1/4 mile winner in stock form, you need to go with this… at least in the 2 door coupe, front engine RWD $60K range.

I don't get why you post the M240i. DH HP as in the video starts at $64,265, M2 G87 at $63,200...

I am wondering where the 500 hp of the DH are? 12.5 pretty much sounds like what a 18 GT was capable of. BMW always state way lower horsepower than their engines makes, so the power of this thing makes sense and is very impressive for a manual. I guess automatic which has better 1st and 2nd gear gearing could have done a 12.0 or even a bit below.

Because the one I was looking at was $62K and one will all the options is over $70K.

That Supra is a love or hate but for the small amount of money it takes to make insane power you can’t beat it. A simple tune and that car is low/mid 11’s all day and 10’s for a few grand more

Yea, the 18 gt you are quoting is probably an auto. Motortrend ran a 12.0 at 120 with an auto on a (I think) prepped surface.

Before people go nuts, that's just a ZL1 bumper on an SS, and yes, that has a 10-speed, and yes, the DH came with a 6MT. They wanted the 6MT so they could pit it against the Emira, M2, and Supra with 6MTs.

Race 1: 1/4mi
Camaro SS - 12.2s @ 118
Mustang DH - 12.5s @ 115
Challenger Shakedown - 12.5s @ 112

Race 2: 0-60, 1/4mi
M2 - 4.2s, 12.2s @ 119
DH - 4.2s, 12.5s @ 115
Emira - 4.1s, 12.6s @ 111
Supra - 4.2s, 12.9s @ 112
This S650 owner ran a 11.93 stock at his local track. This Darkhorse was a slow one.

You can hear it rolling up to the line, like it's driving over fly paper
