BMW M240i

Looking for BMW M240i here in Los Angeles? 123 Classic Car Rental is here to offer you the best BMW M240i.

Large automakers have become adept at creating new micro segments, but BMW has managed an uncommon twist: Its M240i is one of the rare cars that competes more closely with its own sibling—the BMW M2—than it does with any external foe. This is fraternal rivalry as practiced in a piranha tank.

Despite the best efforts of the BMW marketing machine to distinguish these two über versions of the 2-series, their similarities are far more striking than their differences. Both are powered by 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engines with similar outputs, both hit 60 mph within one-third of a second of each other, and both wear the “M” badges that indicate they were developed by BMW’s Motorsport division. For the casual observer the most obvious distinction is the price, with the M240i undercutting the M2 by $8245.
