THE M2 CS RacingThe perfect entry into racing with BMW M

Made for winners: with the new BMW M2 CS Racing, customer racing is more exciting than ever. Impressive driving performance and state-of-the-art racing technology, combined with the decades of experience of BMW M Motorsport, make the M2 CS Racing a thoroughbred racing car in a class of its own. This is no coincidence: using the perfect base of the BMW M2 CS (fuel consumption in l/100km combined: 10.4-9.4; CO2 emissions in g/km combined: 238-214) and working in close collaboration with BMW M GmbH colleagues, BMW Motorsport engineers used many of the insights from the development of the BMW M4 GT4 to set totally new standards in the entry-level class with its little brother, the BMW M2 CS Racing.

"The collaborative development of the BMW M2 CS and the BMW M2 CS Racing highlights the close integration of BMW Motorsport and BMW M GmbH. Our expertise meets halfway between high-performance cars for the road and pedigree racing cars, namely in the growing club racing sector."
Markus Flasch, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW M GmbH


Another member of the BMW M Customer Racing fleet offers racing experiences and the unconditional pursuit of performance: the BMW M4 GT4 combines maximum mileage with outstanding cost efficiency.


Strong brothers: the new BMW M2 CS and BMW M2 CS Racing


  • 01 Attractive entry into racing
  • 02 Power up to 268 kW (365 PS), upgrade package with 450 hp already in development
  • 03 Engine management via power sticks
  • 04 Uses developments from the BMW M4 GT4
  • 05 Will be distributed via certified BMW M Motorsport dealers for the first time


The BMW M2 CS Racing offers the best setup for successful entry into motorsport. The new customer racing car is powered by an S55 six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo Technology, which with a capacity of 2,979 cc in the racing version achieves between 280 hp (205 kW) and 365 hp (268 kW), depending on the Balance of Performance or Permit B classification. The maximum torque of 550 Nm is transmitted by a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which has been applied using specialist motorsport software. Sound and performance are provided by a motorsport-specific exhaust system with racing catalytic converters.

Motorsport-specific driving aids such as ABS and DSC guarantee that newcomers will be able to handle the car safely. A mechanical limited slip differential with pre-load and separate cooling also comes as standard, as do specially manufactured drive shafts. For weight reduction and an even lower centre of gravity, the roof is made of lightweight and particularly torsion-resistant carbon.

Adjustable for every motorsport series: another highlight of the BMW M2 CS Racing is its engine management. As with the BMW M4 GT4, in the future this will be controlled via power sticks, which enable various performance levels to be programmed and retrieved depending on the stipulated Balance of Performance.

// Balance of Performance: Balance of Performance, or BoP for short, is a regulation in motorsport in order to bring different engines and/or vehicles to the same or at least similar performance level.

The BMW M2 CS Racing has an intensive period of testing behind it. After initial outings at Miramas in France and Portimão in Portugal came the first appearance under race conditions at the fifth round of the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring. At the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the most demanding racetrack in the world, BMW Motorsport Junior Beitske Visser (NED) and Jörg Weidinger (GER), test and development engineer at BMW M GmbH and a very successful participant in the BMW Sports Trophy over many years, completed the first endurance test and provided the engineers with valuable insights under race conditions. Further outings at the ‘Green Hell’ came in the seventh and ninth round of the VLN.

More power in the making: BMW Motorsport is already working on an upgrade package. This version will be designed for club racing and will deliver up to 450 hp.

Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 10.4 - 10.2 (9.6 - 9.4)
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 238 - 233 (219 - 214)
The figures in brackets refer to the vehicle with seven-speed M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] 

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html
