BMW M2 Attains Unprecedented Nürburgring Lap Time In The Small Category

The Nurburgring lap record for the small category has been surpassed by the BMW M2. The coupe achieved an impressive time of 7 minutes 38.706 seconds to complete the circuit.

Driven by Jörg Weidinger, a development engineer for the BMW M team, the car took two laps to familiarize with the track conditions before embarking on the record-breaking lap on the third attempt.

The second-generation BMW M2 was introduced last year and shares its engine with the M4. A 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder engine producing 453 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque powers the car. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 177 mph with the optional M Driver’s Package.
