With its 450 horsepower, propulsion system and manual transmission, the M2 CS has everything to convince purists.
It's been a long, long time, we expected. The wait had become endless until the day BMW relieved us of our suffering by revealing the brand new BMW M2 CS. She was expected as the messiah because she is resistant when the majority of sports lose a little of their soul. BMW M manufactured what he knew best, namely, a pure sportswoman without electrification, propulsion and equipped with a manual gearbox.
The track is his favorite field
The BMW M2 CS is placed above the BMW M2 Competition. Unlike this one, CS will only be produced in limited numbers at 2200 units for a yearafter that, she will become a collector. It is a car that has been developed alongside the BMW M2 CS Racing in partnership with BMW Motorsport. As much to tell you that the M2 CS is cut to get a maximum of adrenaline on the track.
This racing car 450 hp earns 40 hp compared to the M2 Competition. Under the hood of carbon fiber, we find the S55 engine, the very popular six-cylinder in-line 3.0-liter engine borrowed from the current BMW M3 and M4. Peak torque peaks at 550 Nm between 2350 and 5500 rpm, practice to propel this furious jewel of 0 to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds. By equipping it with the automatic seven-speed DCT dual-clutch transmission, the chronograph will show 3.8 seconds for the same exercise. In both cases, the speed is limited to 280 km / h.
At the crossroads of performance and style
With 19-inch wheels and Michelin Cup 2 wheels (optional), BMW did not skip the braking system of this little wonder. Thus, it has equipped with ventilated discs of 400 mm diameter at the front and 380 mm at the rear. These discs are bitten by six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston rear. For better braking, BMW M offers optional carbon ceramic brakes that are more heat resistant.
Another novelty, the arrival of the adaptive suspension whose laws vary depending on driving patterns. These modes also influence the active differential that intervenes more or less to stabilize the behavior of the vehicle.
We thought that the BMW M2 CS would visually differ from the M2 Competition, well, it's missed. It will be very difficult for the uninitiated to differentiate between these two versions. However, there are some elements that do not deceive as the separator of the carbon front bumper, the spoiler and the carbon air extractor, the carbon roof and the hulls of mirrors in … you have it! . Another difference, the hood is hollowed in its central part to increase the support and refresh the engine. All these carbon elements can reduce the weight of a few pounds and improve the aerodynamics of the BMW M2 CS (Cx 0.37).
