Follow this. First here as indicated.

The current BMW M2 has been described by many as the perfect compact sports car and the new Competition version that essentially replaces it, wants not only to retain that image but also offer more in every area.

Moving on.

The most significant change over the standard M2 hides under the bonnet; gone is the single-turbo engine, because it’s now replaced by the twin-turbo unit found in the M3/M4, complete with the characteristic boomerang-shaped brace.

The M3 engine is slightly detuned, down to 404hp instead of the 425hp while torque is rated at 405lb-ft, available from just 2,350rpm. And yes, the six-speed manual gearbox is still fitted as standard and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic being an option.

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk Is the Most Hellish Hellcat

Being a car guy is like being in a cult; there are certain unspoken rules that folks pretty much stand by, else risking expulsion from the petrolhead community. Rule 1: If some horsepower is good, more horsepower is better, and most horsepower is best.

No one ever has to explain why he or she got the big engine. Roll up to your buddy’s house in a ZR1, and it hardly matters that you have just moved from the Beginner to the Intermediate group in your local HPDE. Your friend understands exactly why you got the big engine, and so do you: Because it’s there, gas is cheap, and you can afford it. In America, there is absolutely no such thing as an engine (or a truck) too big, and the only thing better than big is biggest; most; the absolute. Which explains everything about the Hellcat. All three of them.

MINNEAPOLIS ‘ Post-game Friday night, Seahawks-Vikings, bowels of U.S. Bank Stadium. Seattle coach Pete Carroll, interrupted.

‘Comparing your starting lineup in game one last year,’ I began, ‘to what the starting lineup will be in game one this year, including the kicker and punter, you’re going to have maybe 18 of 24 new starters and’

Further on.

It seems hard to move ahead that easily. But coaches and players have to’and I believe some in Seattle, Carroll and GM John Schneider mostly, are fine with the sudden reconstruction. For the rest of us, it’s still a head-shaker, this controlled burn of the Seattle Seahawks.
