So much time and money spend on development of evolution (not from scratch), and at the end what a sucky sounding and poorly done electric steering in f80 generation. It took M competition to fix some of the flaws and a bunch of aftermarket solutions. I hope next M is good from start otherwise AMG/Lexus or nothing at all. Settling for $80k just doesn't make sense.

Fantastic video even with well intended omission of deep engineering insights.

It's really good to know the m2cs is stress tested and tuned for driving on ice. I'm sure the 2200-ish buyers of the m2cs vehicles will really appreciate that.

Hopefully they're working on making a car that has the same power or more than its competitors. Its sad that none of their cars make impressive power for the price.

I'm always interesting in learning how they give the feedback, observation, changes that need to made, and document the whole process. Pretty cool stuff!

BMW Marketing should continue producing more (read longer duration) video content like this. As an auto enthusiast who appreciates how much work goes into producing these fantastic driving machines, it's intriguing to get a glimpse behind the curtain of the design, engineering and testing process.

That was a advertisement for the M2CS that hasn't sold like they thought it would. they are trying to fill those slots. The fact is for that money there are better options. I hope the Supra doesn't beat it at the track like the M2 Comp.

Exactly. Who would be dumb enough to pay 90 to 100k+ for a car with less than 400whp and still weighs over 3400 lbs.. whoever is pricing BMWs is probably on some drugs.

That's the kind of video dope BMW aficionados like.
However, the video background music, to stretch the meaning of the word "music" here, is a terrible distraction....what is wrong with you people in BMW marketing ? Are you all deaf ?

Really neat look into the minds of the engineers and test drivers. Also neat to see how passionate they seem to be in developing their cars, especially the 'M' cars.

Seriously stunning, nice that there's a 'behind the scenes' footage like this.
