The all-new exclusive, limited-run, special-edtion, BMW M2 CS will be making its debut in South Africa during the second quarter of 2020
The new BMW M2 CS is the first exclusive, limited-run, special-edition car created by BMW M for the premium-compact class.
Positioned as a high-performance model above the BMW M2 Competition, it will continue building on the current success achieved by the BMW M3 CS and BMW M4 CS.
It is an immensely capable platform for the BMW M2 CS Racing model, and will be BMW M Motorsport’s entry point to amateur racing and the new Clubsport racing segment starting in 2020.
The carbon-fibre reinforced plastic material for the bonnet and roof cuts vehicle weight down by 50 percent, giving the model a sporty appearance.
Its eye-catching central air vent below the kidney grille is not just for looks but serves a practical purpose of increasing downforce, and improving airflow for better engine cooling.
Its new front splitter, and Gurney spoiler lip on the boot lid and rear diffuser are exposed carbon fibre. The six-cylinder, 3.0-litre, petrol engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology boasts 331 kW and peak torque of 550 Nm, a whole 29 kW more than the BMW M2 Competition.
The M2 CS accelerates from 0 – 100 km in 4.0 seconds and a manual gearbox: 4.2 seconds. An electronically governed top speed of 280km with the standard M Driver’s Package.
A six-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard for the first time in the 2 Series model segment and a seven-speed M DCT is available as an option.
The standard specification includes Adaptive M suspension with Comfort, Sport, and Sport + modes. The M Sport brakes with red-painted calipers, M Carbon ceramic brakes are optional. The Active M Differential and M Dynamic Mode can be added as an additional option.
The 19-inch wheels are available in a high-gloss black or a matt gold with specially adapted Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Its dual-branch exhaust system enhances the aesthetic and aural appeal of the model. Featuring two electrically-controlled flaps and four stainless steel tailpipes bearing the M logo.
The interior features bucket-style M Sport seats from the BMW M4 CS with integral head restraints featuring BMW M strips, backrests are available in Merino leather or Alcantara with red contrast stitching.
The M Sport steering wheel is available in Alcantara covering, and a red centre marker as an option. The BMW M2 CS comes in an exclusive Misano Blue metallic paint finish.
The new BMW M2 CS will make its debut in South Africa during the second quarter of 2020.
