BMW M2 CS HITS THE ROAD WITH 450 HP.BMW M2 CS HITS THE ROAD WITH 450 HP.

BMW M2 CS HITS THE ROAD WITH 450 HP.

In the BMW M2 CS road car, the dual charged six-cylinder in-line engine, which is based on the power unit of the BMW M4 Competition, achieves 450 hp (331 kW). The power is unleashed perfectly onto the racetrack and the road via the standard 6-speed manual transmission or the optional 7-speed M dual-clutch gearbox (M DKG) – the adaptive M racing suspension previously reserved for the BMW M4 models – and cup tyres. The standard M racing brakes with painted red brake callipers or the optional M carbon ceramic brakes ensure the car slows down properly. Proof that the engineers at BMW M GmbH have created a real masterpiece comes in the form of a vote by the readers of “Auto Bild Sportscars” in 2020: The BMW M2 CS was voted “Sportscar of the Year” 2020 in the “Small and Compact Car” class in a survey carried out by the journal.
