This information was shared by representatives of the German brand. The most affordable “charged” car will remain the M2 model.

The German auto giant BMW has officially announced that cars based on a front-wheel drive platform will not get a “charged” version with an index of M. These are the 1-Series, 2-Series Gran Coupe models and X1 and X2 crossovers. This means that the most powerful modifications of these cars with the indices M135i, M235i and X2 M35i will have engines with a return of 306 hp. Such machines also have a rear axle clutch. Thus, the most affordable car for buyers with the M version will remain the BMW M2. Such a car has a 3.0-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 410 horsepower. One of the most anticipated BMW cars at the moment is the M2 CS model.

Initially, it was intended to participate in races, and later it was certified for public roads.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

 M2 CS will be able to gain the first 100 km / h faster than 4 seconds, and the maximum speed will increase from 250 to 280 km / h. The current version of the M2 accelerates to 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds. Of the features of the new items should be highlighted the original 19-inch wheels with tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, carbon fiber roof and carbon-ceramic brakes. The BMW M2 CS will premiere next year.
