The 2020 BMW M2 CS uses the outgoing M3 and M4’s 444-horsepower 3.0-liter I-6.

The M2 CS isn’t much quicker than the M2 Competition at low speeds, because it’s traction-limited off the line.

The CS does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 12.1 seconds at 120 mph.

A six-speed manual transmission helps the CS retain the fun-to-drive flavor of BMWs of yore.

A carbon-fiber hood and roof help the M2 CS drop 83 pounds compared to the M2 Competition.
