This video features the BMW M2 CS!
Taking its cues from the M4 CS, the M2 CS has been enhanced with a more aggressive front end sporting a carbon fiber diffuser, new lightweight wheels and a lower center of gravity. It’s also likely to adopt a rear diffuser, a fixed rear spoiler, upgraded brakes and suspension, and sticky Michelin tires to improve traction.
Reports have suggested that the M2 CS will be powered by an S55 unit lifted from the M3 and M4 replacing the standard M2’s N55 3.0-liter straight-six turbocharged unit. Chances are it will be detuned so that the M2 CS doesn’t outpace its burlier brothers. The S55 powering the M4 CS produces 460 hp, so expect the M2 CS to deliver around 400 hp.
If the M4 CS is anything to go by, the M2 CS will also be very limited – only 3,000 examples of the M4 CS are being produced. Curiously, Cars.co.za claims that the M2 CS will be offered exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission according to a source close to the testing team. That may come as a surprise considering the M5 will only be offered with an eight-speed automatic, but will undoubtedly please purists if true. As a pure drivers’ car, the M2 CS could become one of the best M cars ever made.
Enjoy the video!
