Last week, we discovered that BMW is reportedly planning to create a new range of performance cars, which will bear the “CS” badge and sit directly above the M models.
According to a “trusty” source on Bimmerpost, the M2 CS will make use of the twin-turbo 3,0-litre straight-six S55B30 currently found in the M4.
The rumour also suggests that the power output will be turned down to 300 kW, obviously so that it does not threaten the performance of the M4. In addition, the little hyper-coupé will apparently benefit from an assortment of aero-parts, a track-focused suspension setup and a more aggressive exhaust system.
Furthermore, the embedded video below shows what could be the aforementioned prototype doing its rounds at the Nürburgring, sounding quite a bit like its bigger brother, the M4.
The M2 CS is expected to be revealed by 2018, and likely be based on the upcoming facelifted version of the coupé.
Of course, Alpha-N Performance has already developed a pseudo-M2 GTS package (pictured here) that makes do with the current N55 engine. Dähler Design & Technik, however, has already dropped an M4 engine in the M2, but without any of the dramatic bodywork.
