Audi RS3 v BMW M2 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Track Test

What’s the fastest performance car you can buy for under $100,000? That’s the question we keep getting asked over and over again. The number of contenders is rather varied and the argument remains that you can certainly buy a $50,000 car and spend another $50k to make it supercar fast, but ultimately, there are only three cars that have the credibility to make it to this test...

BMW M2 supply for Australia grows

It will surprise few to learn that the 2016 allocation of just 300 BMW M2 coupes for Australia was quickly exhausted. Orders flew out the door so quickly, BMW says, that many who missed out were spending up for an M3 or M4 rather than wait around for next year's deliveries. A clever strategy to boost sales of its more expensive M cars? Perhaps, but you can hardly begrudge a business acting like a business...
