You’ve probably seen the spy photos, but now, the 2020 BMW M2 CS has officially launched, powered by a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine making 444 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, mate to either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. If you opt for the former, it can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and hit a top speed of 174 mph, while the optional dual-clutch transmission hits 60 mph in 4.2 seconds.

Unlike the M2 Competition, the M2 CS sports an Active M Differential, an Adaptive M suspension with Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes, as well as a high-performance braking system consisting of six-piston calipers and 15.7-inch discs (front) / four-piston calipers and 15-inch discs (rear).
Inside, it comes equipped with M Competition seats covered in leather + Alcantara upholstery with red contrast stitching and embroidered stripes on the headrests. The center console has been constructed out of carbon fiber reinforced plastic to reduce weight by over 6-pounds. It’s set to go into production in March 2020 with German pricing starting at €95,000 EUR ($105,000 USD).
