23. BMW M2
The 2015 M2 is one of the best cars on the planet combining BMW’s driving dynamics, proven German quality, and M Power heritage. It is also the modern-day equivalent of the legendary 2002 Turbo and a pure German muscle car. To create the M2, BMW used the compact platform of the 2 Series models famous for its precision driving and sharp handling. They added performance-tuned suspension, wider track, bigger brakes, and a 365 HP 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine.
The M2 is a true Autobahn missile of the highest order with a 4.1 second 0 to 60 mph time and a top speed of 168 mph. Also, in a nod to classic performance cars, the new M2 is available as a six-speed manual. That is the version you should get if you consider yourself a true car enthusiast. For the 2018 model year, BMW slightly upgraded the M2 both mechanically and cosmetically with a new grille, sharper handling, and a slight bump in power output.
