Hardcore 2020 BMW M2 CS To Debut At LA Auto Show In November?

The long-awaited M2 CS will allegedly celebrate its global premiere at the LA Auto Show in November.

BMW has been working on its hardcore M2 for quite some time, and we had been under the impression the world could see the sports car at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month. However, BMW Blog reports that the car will now be first shown to the world in the City of Angels.

The M2 CS will be powered by BMW’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter S55 inline-six also used by the M3 and M4 and, then, the M2 Competition. For the occasion, Munich’s engineers will up output to 444 HP, giving it a 39 HP edge over the M2 Competition.

The CS will also be lighter than the Competition thanks to the liberal use of carbon fiber on the roof, front splitter, hood, rear spoiler, rear diffuser and wing mirrors. The lightweight material will also be featured throughout the cabin, including the center console, door handles and seats.

Those interested in the driver-focused M2 CS will be pleased to know that it will be offered with both a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The latterwill help launch the car off the line and to 60 mph (96 km/h) in approximately 4.0 seconds, while the manual should be a couple of tenths slower.

Unlike the standard M2, which is a regular production model, the CS will reportedly be a limited run of 2,200 units.

    This thing is going to be unbelievable. I’d think it might be the same as the 1M, coming out and then never really dropping in price. I truly hope they make more of them so that they get affordable at some point.
