For over a decade now, old-school BMW enthusiasts who value driving joy have been wringing their hands over BMW’s shift toward less tactile, gratifying cars when it comes to the driving experience. While they are more capable than ever, BMW’s M cars have gotten bigger, more numb, and generally less fun to drive. The bright spot in this shifting landscape is the M2, a car cut from the cloth closer to that of the most legendary vintage M cars. It is compact, playful, entertaining, and widely considered to be the most driver-oriented BMW of the last decade.
Initially available in base form, and later the Competition variant, the ultimate form, both in terms of performance and collectibility, is the CS. Differentiated by the inclusion of numerous F80 M3 parts such as engine which provide an additional 40hp over the M2 Competition, sport seats, and Alcantara steering wheel. Also added are Michelin Cup 2 tires, unique wheels, adaptive dampers, and carbon fiber hood and roof, which contribute to an 83 pound weight reduction.
Finished in the striking shade of Hockenheim Silver, which lies between silver and pearl white, this 2021 M2 CS is equipped with steel brakes, dual clutch transmission, and black leather interior with red accents. It has covered just 11,000 kilometers.
