BMW M GmbH has announced the first exclusive and limited-run special edition “premium compact class” BMW M2 CS. The BMW M2 CS joins two other CSes: the BMW M3 CS and the BMW M4 CS, and it is a clear step up to the BMW M2 Competition.
In other words, it is for the speed demons with insatiable appetite for power right from the factory. Speaking of power, the BMW M2 CS benefits from a 3L inline six engine with M TwinPower Turbo that puts out 450 horses – or 40 more ponies over the Competition variant, and developed 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) of torque.
Mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard – the first on a BMW CS model, or a seven-speed M double-clutch gearbox (M DCT), the BMW M2 CS rockets to 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in 4.2 seconds, or 4 seconds flat with the M DCT. Yeah. Technology has advanced to a stage where auto gearbox is a tad faster. It used to be other way round. Oh well, those were the days…
Other specs include Adaptive M suspension with 3 modes, M Sport brakes with red calipers, Active M Differential and My Dynamic Mode, high-gloss black 19-inch Y-spoke forged wheels, specially adapted Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and dual-branch exhaust system with electronically controlled flaps and M-branded four stainless steel tailpipes.
Meanwhile, the cabin boasts bucket-style M Sport seats from BMW M4 CS with integral head restraints with M stripes, seat backrests in Merino leather/Alcantara with red stitching, Alcantara-wrapped M Sport steering wheel. The 2020 BMW M2 CS Coupe will be offered in an exclusive Misano Blue metallic paint finish you see here.
The 2020 BMW M2 CS Coupe will sell for €95,000 (about U$105,000) in Europe. Not sure about stateside, though. U.S. resident who are super keen, may want to sign up for updates as it will be on sale “soon.”
In the meantime, the 2020 BMW M2 CS Coupe will make its world debut at Automobility LA on November 20, 2019.
