Details of the hardcore BMW M2 CS have surfaced online!
This is the M2 that will get you salivating and a few tasty details of the BMW M2 CS (ClubSport) have been served up.
Let’s get to the meat of it then, shall we? Powering this high-performance machine is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre turbocharged engine that’s good for 336 kW (34 kW more than the M2 Competition). A 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT will ensure brisk acceleration from zero to 100 kph in 4.2 and 4.0 seconds respectively.
The M2 CS rides on 19-inch Y-spoke wheels in a gloss black finish and shod in Michelin Sport Cup 2 rubber. Carbon fibre has been used extensively to reduce weight. The bonnet, front splitter and roof are made of carbon fibre. The roof also features a new sandwich design which lowers weight further while increasing structural rigidity and lowering the car’s centre of gravity.
Adaptive M Suspension and M Sport brakes are standard and new ball joints and elastomeric bearings have been fitted to the front and rear axles. Carbon-ceramic brakes are optional.
As for the interior, the use of carbon fibre continues as seen on the door pulls, door trim and centre console. Alcantara with contrast stitching is prevalent inside the M2 CS, including the thick steering wheel. M Competition sport seats are covered in black leather and Alcantara and feature a CS logo on the headrests that let people know you are driving the real deal.
Buyers will be able to choose between 4 exterior colours including Alpine White, Misano Blue Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic and Hockenheim Silver Metallic.
BMW South Africa has confirmed that the M2 CS will arrive in South Africa in 2020.
