2020 BMW M2 CS Spied Inside-Out, Coming This Fall With 444 HP

BMW introduced the M2 Competition last year, but the fans still have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the highly-anticipated M2 CS.

Caught making a quick pit stop during testing, the 2020 M2 CS promises to be the ultimate driving machin.

Its twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six has been tuned to 444 hp (331 kW / 450 PS), a noticeable improvement over the 405 hp (301 kW / 410 PS) M2 Competition, which can run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.0 seconds when equipped with the (optional) seven-speed DCT gearbox.

The extra power will also be accompanied by less weight. This will be achieved thanks to a number of carbon fiber components including a power dome hood, roof and mirror caps. We can also expect a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system and lightweight alloy wheels along with a high-performance braking system.

Speaking of performance, the M Division will also fit a retuned suspension which should make the M2 CS an entertaining partner on the track. Details are limited at the moment, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the model has a stiffer chassis and number of lightweight components to reduce mass and improve agility.

Naturally, the interior largely carries over from the Competition. While it isn’t as high-tech as the 3-Series, the M2 CS will have heavily bolstered sports seats with contrast stitching and special embroidery on the headrests. We can also see a meaty, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel that will reportedly be optional. Speaking of options, this particular prototype has been equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission but a six-speed manual should be standard.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS is expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this fall and production will reportedly be limited to 2,200 units.

      it can be also last RWD BMW of this size i.e. size of the original M3, because it’s still unclear if BMW will do a 2 Series RWD Coupe as now 1 Series is in FWD UKL platform. If that will be the case, it will be a collectible in no time, not unlike an 1 M Coupe…
