The first BMW M2 was an impressive sports car with its 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing 365 horsepower. BMW then shoved the twin-turbocharged inline-six from the larger M4 under the hood, creating the 405 hp M2 Competition, which was even better. Now the company has been reportedly working on an even more hardcore version called the M2 CS.
The M2 CS hasn’t exactly been a tightly-kept secret – with the rumored specs having already been leaked. The open-secret in Munich is the BMW M2 CS. The future addition to the M2 lineup will debut later this year with sales commencing in early 2020. Just like the other CS models – M3 and M4, the M2 CS will be a supped up version of the current BMW M2 Competition, a car which has won the hearts of many BMW enthusiasts. But the BMW M2 CS won’t arrive by itself.
For starters, the BMW M2 CS is getting the rumored 450 horsepower output. The standard gearbox is manual, with dual-clutch optional. The adaptive suspension with no adjustable height is also offered on the M2 CS, along with red caliper brakes M Performance Brakes. If you would like to spend more money, then you can get the carbon ceramic.
The wheels were also known before – 19 inch 763M Style in either gold or black, wrapped in Michelin Cup 2 tires.
The BMW M2 CS Racing will replace the vastly successful M235i and M240i racers that seem to make up half of the Nürburgring 24-hour grid each year. The car will also be suitable for clubsport levels, not just professional racing. The first cars will be delivered at the start of the second quarter of 2020.
The latest info suggests the M2 CS debuts in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Expect deliveries to start in 2020. The price is a mystery but expect a figure higher than the M2 Competition’s $58,900.
