BMW is always under-rating the power.
In Car and Driver's Test, the car did the deed to 60 in 4.6 and the quarter mile in 13.3 seconds. It's actually faster than the Focus RS which makes more power and torque, weighs almost 300lbs less, and has grippier rubber from the factory

The RS would be much faster with our 8 speed though..I wonder how quick the mini clubman jcw will be with the M35's engine in it - same engine and transmission in a lighter vehicle.

But X2 has the Torsen front diff. JCW has a locking, and RS had open diff until 2018, then Quaife. The Torsen wins off the line, by avoiding slip and the resulting traction control.

Try flooring all three cars from stopped with the wheels cramped left or right. That test really shows off the X2. Sold me on it, anyway!

I love his Holy Crap when he tests the launch control. Mine is stiil too few miles to try it yet, myself!

He's estimating it's 10% under-rated, i.e it makes about 330 or 335HP. Sounds good to me.

They’ve done it again and managed to get an even more ridiculous 0-60 time.
