The battle has as a judge and part to Steve Sutcliffe, a well-known tester uk who will put them against the ropes in a twisty path british that brings out all the extra pounds and the differences in tuning of the cars analysed.
Both the BMW M2 as the 1-Series M Coupe used boxes of change manual of six relations.
The first to be tried is the BMW M2.
