The upcoming BMW M2 CS has been spotted during cold weather testing in Northern Sweden. Featuring all the new parts that the M2 LCI facelift will have with a new front bumper, new head lights, grille, tail lights and diffusor. This prototype also has might S55 powerplant from the M3/M4 under the hood. To keep things sane the S55 engine will be slightly detuned down to 400 hp according to the latest rumours.
So how do we know that this is really the M2 CS then? Well the easiest way to see it is that the prototype has the M3/M4 like exhaust instead of the regular M2 exhaust. Another give away are the fact that the DCT cooler has been moved, normally we can see it through the kidneys but in this case we can see the return line in the lower parts of the front spoiler indicating the S55 engine. The facelifted M2 will keep the N55 engine as it has now.
The brakes on this prototype seems to be the regular M2 once, but one of the other M2 CS prototypes seen earlier had the bigger M3/M4 brakes fitted. If the bigger brakes will be standard or optional is still not sure.
In addition to the new engine, the M2 CS will feature other track focused bits such as suspension tweaks and aerodynamic parts - such as more aggressive front bumper / front splitter and a possible rear spoiler or wing.
Expect a debut of the M2 facelift in July 2017 with the M2 CS following in early 2018.
