Default Hotter BMW M2 CS Production Starts 2020

Quote:
Hotter BMW M2 To Carry CS Suffix; Production Starting March 2020

By nicknaming the next-gen 2 Series the “Drift Machine,” BMW has effectively confirmed the coupe will retain the tail-happy rear-wheel-drive layout. It also likely means there will be a new M2 at some point in the next decade, but the current one still hasn’t been dialed to the maximum. Just a couple of days ago we shared a batch of spy shots with an amped-up M2 prototype, with the rumor mill pointing towards a future CS or CSL derivative.

Fast forward to present day, our friends at BMW Blog claim the model in question will go by the name of M2 CS. Their sources have revealed production is going to begin in March 2020, so we’re expecting an official reveal to take place either by the end of next year or early next decade.

If you can't wait until then, the M2 Competition is totally worth buying:

The decision to slap the “CS” badge on the car’s trunk lid makes perfect sense taking into account BMW already has the M4 CS and M3 CS in its growing portfolio of performance cars. Details about the forthcoming M2 CS are murky at this point, but reports are indicating engineers will shave weight over the current M2 Competition, which tips the scales at 3,655 lbs (1,658 kg) with the automatic transmission and 3,600 lbs (1,632 kg) with the manual.

It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to assume power will be up from the 405 horsepower (302 kilowatts) and 406 pound-feet (551 Newton-meters) of torque you get from the S55 engine underneath the M2 Competition’s hood.

The new BMW M2 CS is expected to serve as a last hurrah for the current-gen 2 Series and will allegedly be offered for only about a year as a limited-run edition. Time will tell whether there will also be a CLS version, but we wouldn’t count on it.

BMW M is out testing a new version of the M2, believed to be a hardcore M2 CS due out later this year.

The car may look like the recently launched M2 Competition but if you look a little closer you'll notice some key differences.

For instance, the front fascia sports an additional lip spoiler lifted out of the M Performance parts catalog. There's also a trunk lid spoiler that matches the design used on the BMW M4 CS.



Also borrowed from the M4 CS are this M2 tester's wheel design and massive carbon-ceramic brake rotors. No doubt the car is also wearing a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, just like the M4 CS.

The M2 CS is expected to offer about 445 horsepower, likely from the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-6 fitted to the M3/M4 instead of the regular M2's single-turbo engine. The regular M2 makes 365 hp while the M2 Competition with the same engine makes 405 hp.

We also hear that shoppers will be able to choose between manual or dual-clutch transmissions, as well as between four colors for the exterior (Black Sapphire, Alpine White, Hockenheim Silver, Misano Blue). A carbon fiber-reinforced plastic roof is also expected to be fitted as standard.

While it's yet to be confirmed, we heard last August that the M2 CS is being looked at as a potential limited-edition model for the United States. An even more hardcore M2 CSL is expected to follow but as a global model.

The CSL cars will be targeted at track enthusiasts and we should see the storied badge resurface first on an M4 CSL at some point. The latter will essentially replace 2016's M4 GTS.

Note, BMW M is already laying the groundwork for a redesigned M2. The car is referred to internally as the "drift machine." Sounds like it will be a corker.

I’m confused by this paragraph. They are saying the M2C makes 405hp with of the N55 single turbo engine? The M2C uses the S55.

The track-focused, go-faster M2 is coming our way

by Andrei Nedelea, on June 24, 2019, 21:00
BMW is reportedly readying an even hotter version of its M2 to sit above the M2 Competition - they are the M2 CS and M2 CSL, and our spies believe that’s what they captured in these photos. Some older reports from before the Competition model was launched, called it the M2 GTS. The white prototype features several changes over the M2 Competition and, as a Whole, it looks like a more aggressive, track-focused machine.

It has been suggested that the M2 CS would be a North America-only limited model available from 2020 and that the CSL would be even more extreme and sold on other markets from 2021, but right now it’s too early to make these predictions. Both will clearly be lighter, more powerful and better around a track than the Competition which in turn is one step up from the base M2.

Update 6/24/2019: The 2021 BMW M2 CS was caught testing again, and this time we’ve managed get a look at the interior. Check out all the details in the spy shots section below.

July 1,2019

EXCLUSIVE: BMW M2 CS will be unveiled Fall 2019

BMWBLOG can now report that the highly-awaited BMW M2 CS will be unveiled this fall. The M2 CS is going through its final testing stages and will head for production in March 2020. The production ready model will NOT be shown in Frankfurt, but rather shortly after and its public debut will be set for the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.

On the outside, the new M2 CS will receive a carbon fiber bonnet, a carbon fiber roof with a new design, carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon fiber rear diffuser and carbon fiber side mirrors. Inside, the upgrades are just as significant and they start with the carbon fiber center console, continuing with the carbon fiber door handle cover, Alcantara trim interior with contrast in red, an M2 CS badge, M Competition seats from the M4 CS and an Alcantara M Steering Wheel with red contrasts.

Performance wise, the S55 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine will make 450 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque which can be sent to the rear wheels via a standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional 7-speed Dual Clutch gearbox. A modified M Sport Exhaust System will provide that growly we all expect from a high-performance M car.

Other standard features include the Adaptive M Suspension, 19 inch 763M style wheels in either Jet Black high gloss or Gold matte. The braking power is provided by a standard M Sport braking system with red calipers or the optional, and more expensive, M-Carbon ceramic brake. There are also two tire options, CUP tires as standard or non-CUP option.

As we announced in the past, the production date is scheduled for March 2020 and will end in December 2020. It’s a limited run, as expected, so only around 2,200 are rumored to be produced. We can’t confirm that number now, but we’ll have more on that soon.

So I should probably sell my M2 before the value tanks so that I can grab a M2C.

Noted.

The AMG CLA 45 like the RS-3 is always going to have inferior handling due to its FWD layout so it comes down to what you like better. Straight line acceleration or better handling. I very much like the new MB interiors so like most MB’s you buy for the engine and interior and live with the exterior styling and not best in class handling.

Yeah, noticed this, lol. They mixed up their smoking pipes - grabbed the wrong one.
