In November, at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, BMW will finally unveil the 2020 BMW M2 CS. The super sporty M2 is one of the most awaited BMWs of this decade, or at least ever since the 1M. The car has been spotted numerous times on the Nurburgring, running hot laps and going through final testing checks.
Many things are somewhat known about the M2 CS. For starters, 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.
Under the hood, 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 brakes.
According to our sources, the 2020 BMW M2 CS will be fairly limited in numbers and the total production output is expected to be in the low 2000s. Clearly, this will make the M2 CS a very rare BMW and potentially, a future classic, like the 1M it replaces. Many dealerships we spoke also mentioned long waiting lists already in place for the M2 CS, so no bargains are likely to be found.
First test drives are expected in the early 2020 with deliveries scheduled for Summer of next year.
