[ Mr A4 ] BMW M2 M Performance – Geneva Motorshow 2016.
An advertisement for the Ensign 6, a 6.7 L (410 cu in) high-performance car similar to the Bentley Speed Six, appeared in The Times for 11 November 1920 with the phrase “If you are interested in a supercar, you cannot afford to ignore the claims of the Ensign 6.”[6] The Oxford English Dictionary also cites the use of the word in an advertisement for an unnamed car in The Motor dated 3 November 1920, “The Supreme development of the British super-car.”[7] and defines the phrase as suggesting “a car superior to all others”. A book published by the Research Institute of America in 1944, that previewed the economic and industrial changes to occur after World War II,[8] used the term “supercar” (author’s emphasis) to describe future automobiles incorporating advances in design and technology such as flat floorpans and automatic transmissions.[9]

In the United States, the term “supercar” predates the classification of muscle car[10][11] to describe the “dragstrip bred” affordable mid-size cars of the 1960s and early 1970s that were equipped with large, powerful V8 engines and rear wheel drive.[12] The combination of a potent engine in a lightweight car began with the 1957 Rambler Rebel that was described as a “veritable supercar”.[13] “In 1966 the sixties supercar became an official industry trend”[14] as the four domestic automakers “needed to cash in on the supercar market” with eye-catching, heart-stopping cars.[15] Among the numerous examples of the use of the supercar description include the May 1965 issue of the American magazine Car Life, in a road test of the Pontiac GTO, as well as how “Hurst puts American Motors into the Supercar club with the 390 Rogue”[16] (the SC/Rambler) to fight in “the Supercar street racer gang” market segment.[17] The “SC” in the model name stood for “SuperCar”.[18] The supercar market segment included regular production models[19] in different muscle market segments (such as the “economy supercar”[20]), as well as limited edition, documented dealer-converted vehiclesBMW presented this M2 M Performance at the Geneva Motorshow 2016. It’s a M2 fitted with the M Performance Parts, so a lot of carbon and options where you choose of.
