Jessica Lynn WalkerCar and Driver
With its 444-hp twin-turbo inline-six, adaptive dampers, and sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the new limited-edition M2 CS is an intimately focused driver’s car unlike many of the other models in BMW’s current lineup.

The 2020 BMW M2 CS uses the outgoing M3 and M4’s 444-horsepower 3.0-liter I-6.
2 of 62
The M2 CS isn’t much quicker than the M2 Competition at low speeds, because it’s traction-limited off the line.
3 of 62
The CS does 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 12.1 seconds at 120 mph.
4 of 62
A six-speed manual transmission helps the CS retain the fun-to-drive flavor of BMWs of yore.
5 of 62
The 3.0-liter makes 406 lb-ft of torque at only 2350 rpm.

The $8,500 carbon-ceramic brake rotors provide brutal stopping power—and they minimize grime on the optional gold wheels.
7 of 62
A carbon-fiber hood and roof help the M2 CS drop 83 pounds compared to the M2 Competition.
8 of 62
You’d probably appreciate the downforce from that modest spoiler at the M2 CS’s claimed 174 mph top speed.
9 of 62
The biggest drawback of this great little car: its $84,595 base price. Ours was $93,095 as tested.
10 of 62
The shifter is a little bit rubbery, but that’s in keeping with BMW tradition and doesn’t lessen the fun.
