BMW Asia and Performance Munich Autos have announced that the track oriented BMW M2 CS is now in Singapore.

10 Nov 2020 | Local News : Singapore

The new BMW M2 CS has arrived in Singapore. The new high-performance BMW M2 CS is an exclusive and limited-run model in the premium compact class. 

It sits above the BMW M2 Competition in the lineup and also provides an immensely capable basis for the BMW M2 CS Racing model, BMW M Motorsport's new entry point to amateur racing and the new Clubsport segment.

The exhaust system on the M2 CS is new, and is a visual and aural upgrade compared to the M2 Competition
An array of design elements made from Carbon Fibre-Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) ensure the new BMW M2 CS cuts an even sharper figure than the BMW M2 Competition. They include the newly designed bonnet, the roof, new front splitter, Gurney lip and the rear diffuser in exposed carbon fibre.

The BMW M2 CS sets new standards in its segment for acceleration, dynamic flair, precision and agility, and provides a new, emotion-stirring entry point to the BMW M GmbH product range. The M2 CS also is also available with the Misano Blue metallic - a colour that was previously not available on the M2 Competition.

The twin-turbo six-cylinder in-line engine develops output of 444bhp, an increase of 39bhhp from the BMW M2 Competition. The engine's power is transferred to the road or race track by Adaptive M suspension, previously only available on the higher end M models.

Adaptive M suspension allows the driver to alter the damper settings through Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes. While Comfort optimises ride comfort in daily use around town, Sport ensures particularly dynamic progress on cross-country roads. Sport+ meanwhile minimises body movements and maximises dynamic sharpness for top performance on the track.

The Active M Differential is an electronically controlled multi-plate locking mechanism which optimises traction and directional stability
The experience of BMW M in racing is clearly reflected in the standard-fitted M Sport brakes with red-painted brake calipers. The brakes on the M2 CS have been improved, measuring 400mm in diameter up front and 380mm in the rear, and clamped with six piston calipers at the front and four piston calipers at the rear.

This improved brakes delivers exceptional braking performance with excellent stopping power in all conditions, strong fade resistance and considerable thermal stability.

Credit for the car's sharp and agile handling goes to elements such as the CFRP high-precision strut brace, which increases the rigidity of the front-end structure, and the extremely accurate Dynamic Stability Control system. The latter offers generous levels of traction in wet conditions and when wheel slip becomes a factor, and prevents a sudden breakaway of traction mid-drift.

Lending a helping hand is the Active M Differential, an electronically controlled multi-plate locking mechanism that helps to optimise traction and directional stability - and which even works proactively in certain situations.

For added weight savings, the seats in the M2 CS are borrowed ultra-light sport seats from the M4 CS
When exuberant track driving is the order of the day, the selectable M Dynamic Mode allows a greater degree of wheel slip and increases the freedom available to drivers at the dynamic limit. More significant oversteer and understeer are possible, as are moderate, controlled drifts.

The new BMW M2 CS racks up some impressive performance stats. When fitted with the seven-speed M double-clutch transmission, it accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.0 seconds. With the six-speed manual gearbox - offered for the first time in a BMW CS model - the same sprint is accomplished in 4.2 seconds.

The top speed of the M Driver's Package equipped special edition is capped electronically at 280km/h. An additional cover for the oil sump, an additional oil scavenge pump and a sophisticated oil return system near the turbocharger maintain stable oil circulation in both everyday use and hard driving on the track.

The engine's increased appetite for cooling air is reflected among other things in the design of the bonnet, whose integrated air vent helps to expel hot air more effectively.

For additional chassis rigidity, the M2 CS gets a CFRP strut brace, which increases the rigidity of the front-end structure
The upgraded exhaust system has a dual-branch design and sports the quad tailpipes. Two electrically controlled flaps ensure that the new BMW M2 CS develops an engine note fitting the BMW M profile. The driver can make further adjustments to the soundtrack through their choice of M Engine Dynamics Control driving mode and using direct selection buttons on the centre console.

The cabin of the M2 CS features Alcantara and an innovative lightweight design, with the centre console being made entirely of lightweight carbon fibre, with CFRP also being used for the door pulls and trim.

The ultra-light M Sport seats from the BMW M4 CS shave more weight and are also visually appealing, as they not only help to hold the driver in place with their bucket-style construction, but are also upholstered in Merino leather and Alcantara with red contrast stitching for an eye-catching design while delivering necessary comfort.

The M Sport steering wheel with exclusive Alcantara covering and a red centre marker likewise feeds into the motor sport theme. Alcantara is also used for the armrest in the centre console and a trim strip on the instrument panel bearing a large red CS logo.
