With a starting price of $83,600, the 2020 M2 CS is close to $25,000 more expensive than the standard M2 Coupé!
BMW's M CS models have always had a bit of a reputation for their exorbitant price tags. And with the price announcement for the new 2020 M2 CS, BMW has certainly kept that reputation intact. With a base price of $83,600, the M2 CS is more expensive than a standard-spec M2 Competition by nearly $25,000! For nearly $10,000 less, you can get yourself an X4 M SUV and for just $1,300 extra, you can get the base version of the 8-Series Gran Coupé. While the former option is an M-school thoroughbred, the latter is BMW's latest four-door coupé flagship. So, what do you get for the extra 25k premium in the M2 CS?
Powering the M2 CS is the same 3.0-litre in-line six M TwinPower Turbo petrol motor as the M2 Competition but with a power bump, of 39bhp, to be specific. Further, it's the first BMW CS model to have a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, although an optional 7-speed DCT automatic is also available.
Other bits that differentiate the M2 CS from its standard brethren include a bucketload of lightweight carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) panels - hood, new front splitter, roof, rear diffuser & spoiler lip and centre console. Mechanically, the M2 CS comes with an M Active Differential, Adaptive M suspension, M Sport brakes & seats and lightweight 19-inch Y-spoke forged wheels (shod with specially-developed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres) as standard.
