A BMW product bulletin for the upcoming BMW M2 CS has leaked earlier today. It’s still unclear whether this is the final list of options and features for the M2 CS, but according to our sources, the items listed will be part of the new model offering. Let’s start with the visual upgrades. On the outside, the new M2 CS will receive a carbon fiber bonnet, a carbon fiber roof with a new design, carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rear spoiler, carbon fiber rear diffuser and carbon fiber side mirrors.
Inside, the upgrades are just as significant and they start with the carbon fiber center console, continuing with the carbon fiber door handle cover, Alcantara trim interior with contrast in red, an M2 CS badge, M Competition seats from the M4 CS and an Alcantara M Steering Wheel with red contrasts.

Performance wise, the S55 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine will make 450 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque which can be sent to the rear wheels via a standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional 7-speed Dual Clutch gearbox. A modified M Sport Exhaust System will provide that growly we all expect from a high-performance M car.
Other standard features include the Adaptive M Suspension, 19 inch 763M style wheels in either Jet Black high gloss or Gold matte. The braking power is provided by a standard M Sport braking system with red calipers or the optional, and more expensive, M-Carbon ceramic brake. There are also two tire options, CUP tires as standard or non-CUP option.
As we announced in the past, the production date is scheduled for March 2020 and will end in December 2020. It’s a limited run, as expected, so only around 2,200 are rumored to be produced. We can’t confirm that number now, but we’ll have more on that soon.
