BMW has revealed its new M2 CS.

This latest performance vehicle from BMW should also resonate dramatic acoustics, thanks to a dual-branch exhaust system with electronically controlled valving.

BMW's engineers have worked their magic on the engine's electronics and exhaust efficiency to boost peak power from 302kW in a Competition edition M2, to 331kW in the new CS derivative.

The increased reserves are channelled through a standard six-speed manual or optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and an electronically controlled Active M differential.

Not only is the CS to be the sharpest M2 yet, it's also going to look the part with new aero in the form of a CFRP bonnet and roof, plus a redesigned front splitter, bootlid Gurney flap, and a new rear diffuser. BMW says it's cherry-picking some of the best strategy and tech there from the BMW Motorsport team, and in fact there'll be a new M2 CS Racing model that'll be offered as a turnkey entry-level option for aspiring racers. Their sound is adjusts via the M Engine Dynamics control in the cabin. It's paired with rev-matching to automatically blip the throttle on downshifts, as well as lowering the engine's speed on upshifts, for overall smoother gear changes.

Ultimate baby coupe from M gets more power and racier attitude. Full locking power can be applied in under 150 milliseconds, and it works both reactively to road conditions and proactively to avoid low-traction wheel spin when you're pulling away hot. It, too, gets Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ modes. Also included are upgraded M Sport brakes, with 400mm steel discs and six-piston calipers at the front and 380mm steel discs and four-piston calipers at the rear. Carbon-ceramic brakes will be optional.

There is also a Driver's Package, which includes 245/35-profile front and 265/35-profile rear 19in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as standard; additionally, its top speed is raised to 280kph. Other lightweight trim details include an ergonomically shaped Alcantara steering wheel and fabric door-pulls, instead of traditional door handles. BMW says that only 2,200 will be produced, for 2020 alone, and to be shared by its various markets.

Mechanically the M2 CS features an upgraded engine and sophisticated exhaust system. The equivalent M3 and M4 were the best models in their respective ranges, the M2 has been a breath of fresh air in the M auto line up and every modification made to this iteration sounds like it'll make it even better.
