BMW just took the wraps off the 2020 BMW M2 CS. Engineered for the track, it ups the performance prowess of the M2 Competition. In fact, this is the most powerful M2 version. But BMW didn't just drop an uber-powerful inline six into this little coupe, it also changed the suspension, added a carbon ceramic brakes option and reduced the weight through the liberal use of carbon fiber.

The Go

BMW popped the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine from the M4 Competition into the engine bay of the M2 CS. It turns out 444 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. When mated with the standard 6-speed manual transmission, BMW says it can hustle from 0-60 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds. Opting for the 7-speed double-clutch transmission trims 0.2 seconds from that time to 4.0 seconds.

Helping the driver tame all that gusto is BMW's M adaptive suspension. The 2020 BMW M2 CS is the first use of this electronically controlled suspension in an M2. It offers Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus settings. The 19-in forged light alloy wheels are wrapped in Cup 2 rubber.

The standard brakes are the same as on the M2 (6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers), but for some added stopping power, BMW is offering a carbon ceramic brakes upgrade as one of only four options.

The Diet

Liberal use of carbon fiber in and around the M2 CS has controlled the weight. BMW has been cagey about how much weight was dropped, but carbon fiber makes up a few big elements, such as the hood and roof, as well as smaller bits and pieces like the rear spoiler, rear diffuser and transmission tunnel. According to BMW, the carbon-fiber hood weighs half that of the steel hood.

Inside

Much of the inside, from the lightweight M sport seats to the dashboard, is covered in Alcantara, with carbon-fiber accents on the door panels and the center console. Standard are heated, power-adjustable front seats with M seat belts. Other standard gear includes a navigation system, a Harman Kardon premium audio system, an Anthracite headliner, ambient lighting and an M Alcantara steering wheel.

When and How Much?

BMW has yet to announce pricing, but expect it to be way north of $60,000. An exact on-sale date hasn't been announced either, but it will be in 2020. Find a BMW M2 for sale
