Motor Trend’s Senior Editor Jason Cammisa is the guy getting all the cool stuff these days and driving them hard on road and track in the name of consumer advice. The latest cool stuff he gets to play with is the new BMW M2, and if that wasn’t fun enough, he’s brought along a BMW M4 and racing driver Randy Pobst.
Our great envy toward Jason notwithstanding, this video does include some genuine consumer advice. Those who might be tempted to buy the BMW M2 can and will consider the M4 as well. So they can use the professional verdict delivered by guys who live and breath performance cars.
