BMW M2 COMPETITION: ACCELERATION VS REALITY.

BMW M2 Competition: acceleration vs reality.All of this can be done in 4.2 seconds.

It only takes 4.2 seconds to pass until the speedometer needle hits the 100 km/h mark. The M2 Competition is a true master of acceleration, but what else can you do in a matter of seconds? What compares to this achievement? Here, we present a selection of different activities that have also been achieved at super speed.

 

BMW M2 Competition:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 9,9 - 10,0 (9,2)*
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 225 - 228 (209 - 210)*
The figures in brackets refer to the vehicle with seven-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.
* These figures are preliminary values and have not yet been confirmed. Subject to change.

RECORD-BREAKING PIT STOP.

DTM pit stop

Change all four tyres.

Complete wheel changes also apply to the DTM’s mandatory pit stop. In contrast to Formula 1, separate teams don’t work in parallel at the front and rear of the cars, but there is one for each side instead. First, the front wheels are attached, and only after that do they begin working on the rear of the vehicle. This is undertaken by a well-rehearsed crew within a matter of seconds.

Usain Bolt

WILL POWER MEETS MUSCLE POWER.

From sprint star to legend in less than ten seconds.

Usain Bolt is unique. A closer look at the current 100-metre world record demonstrates this. In Berlin in 2009, it took the Jamaican only 9.58 seconds to complete the ultimate sprint test. This means he is the only person to date to have completed the 100-metre sprint in less than 9.6 seconds. After 4.2 seconds, his speed was just over 40 km/h. Between 60 and 80 metres, he reached an average speed of 44.72 km/h. If he had been able to maintain this pace over 4.2 seconds, he would have covered 52.17 metres, which would result in an eye-watering 100-metres time of 8.05 seconds.

DAREDEVIL CLIFF JUMP.

cliff jump

Throw yourself off a 50-metre-high cliff.

Cliff diving is a magical attraction for adventurers and adrenaline junkies. The excitement seems to increase exponentially the higher the diving platform. Record breaking jumpers will reach the bottom in under four seconds. However, it’s not for the faint-hearted, and certainly shouldn’t be attempted by people who are untrained in extreme sports. During the flight phase, the force of gravity accelerates the body to speeds of over 100 km/h. This means the contact with the water surface feels like hitting hard concrete.

OK Go

RECORD-BREAKING MUSIC VIDEO.

A complex video shoot for a rock song.

The US rock band OK Go had the bold idea of putting a bunch of different themes and effects in just 4.2 seconds and turning it into a three-minute music video. These included a lot of colour, one or two explosions and some funny ideas. All of this was made possible thanks to special camera technology for high-speed recording, which the musicians attached to a powerful robot arm. A cameraman would’ve been unable to pan the camera in these ways in such a short time.

MAGIC HANDS.

Rubik’s Cube

Complete a Cube in 4.2 seconds.

Rubik’s Cubes: everyone knows them, few really love them. Many players start ambitiously but are driven to distraction by the difficulty of the puzzle and give up in a huff. This is not the case with specialist Feliks Zemdegs. The young Australian appears to be obsessed with the challenge of navigating the different colours around the cube. Remarkably, it took him just 4.221 seconds to mix up the different squares and turn them into six uniformly coloured sides.

SO CLOSE TO HEAVEN

Shanghai Skyline

With an elevation of 70 km/h to the top.

Higher, faster, further: this leitmotif also applies to the world’s biggest buildings, which continue to soar high up into the sky. As they grow in scale, special elevator systems are used in the tallest and most modern of skyscrapers. After all, nobody wants to sit around leisurely or climb endless stairs to get to the top floors. The most powerful of these systems climbs more than 20 metres in altitude per second, which corresponds to a cheek-tugging 72 km/h – rising more than 80 metres within 4.2 seconds.

The figures in brackets refer to the vehicle with seven-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.
* These figures are preliminary values and have not yet been confirmed. Subject to change. The illustrations show optional equipment.


The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.
