New M2 CS Spotted Testing At Nürburgring

Testing BMW M2: More Powerful Than Ever

BMWs M2 is a member of the ever-increasing and even-improving M range. Though petrol driven cars are currently still on the market, these vehicles remain some of the most supremely crafted machines when it comes to automobiles that prioritize performance over all else. However, it is only when one looks toward their CS marked units that a greater level of excellence is realized.

Drawing motivation from the BMW E46 M3 CSL, both the past BMW M2 CS and the fresh out of the plastic new BMW M3 CS give considerably more force, dynamism, and execution to the fundamental M models.

The newest M2 is destined to receive the notable CS treatment afresh. Regarding its aesthetics, we have beenHave lucky enough to acquire some exclusive photographs of an intensely camouflaged prototype being tried at the notorious Nürburgring courtesy of HotCars photographer Brian Williams.

Boasting 453bhp and 406 lb-ft of torque, the current BMW G87 M2 is a scaled-down version of the BMW M4, losing just 20 horses from its twin-turbocharged 3-liter in-line six. The previous M2 had an output of 365 hp, with its Competition edition providing 405 ponies; while the most powerful trims came with 444hp from the BMW M4 Competitions motor. Nevertheless, a manual transmission was still available in the ‘CS’ version.

A possible alteration could accompany the recent CS version; as the current BMW M3 and M4 Competition variants necessitate an automatic gearbox.

It is speculation, but we predict that the BMW M2 CS can be expected to come fitted with the exact same 503 horsepower and 479 lb-ft engine used in the M4 Competition. This would mean a gain of 50 hp and 73 lb-ft of torque over the powerhouse driving the latest BMW M3. In addition to a retuned suspension, lightweight carbon fiber components, and enhanced power output, the M2 CS is forecasted to have exclusive exterior design elements to distinguish itself from the earlier M2 models.

This new formation could provide a slight surge in quickening, plus more energetic maneuvering from the loss of mass and custom-made chassis design.

The exclusive pictures deliver few clues, but one feature that stands out is the rear spoiler prominently integrated onto the trunk lid – much like the one seen on the notorious M4 CSL. This car set a record lap time on the Nürburgring with an astonishing 7:20 in the slightly lengthened version of the circuit.

A front splitter is visible on the M2 CS prototype, however the front bumper, air intake and radiator mesh look be like the regular M2.

If the BMW M2 is assumed to be spiritual inheritor of the BMW M3, then the BMW M2 CS can be presumed as its forebear to one of the most classic M machines of the first years of the 2000s – the BMW E46 M3 CSL.
