A video has appeared on the Sport Auto YouTube channel showing the high-speed race of the BMW M2 CS on the Nürburgring race track. The car has a 444-horsepower engine, as well as productive tires. The Nürburgring loop was covered in 7 minutes 42 seconds.

The BMW M2, even in its standard form, was a very powerful car. However, as the German automaker is always looking to improve its cars, several faster versions of the compact model have been released. So what makes the latest M2 CS stand out from the rest? A video has appeared on the Sport Auto YouTube channel showing the high-speed run of this version of the model on the Nürburgring race track.

Under the hood of the car is a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder S55 engine, producing 444 horsepower (550 Nm). It’s a shame, but it looks like the latest version for this model – the fact is that the European emission requirements are tightening, so BMW has decided to stop further development.

The car received a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires measuring 245/35 R19 at the front and 265/35 R19 at the rear. Judging by the video, the car maintained a decent level of grip and confidently passed turns.

The CS gets much more than just power bump and sticky rubber. Other features include an active differential and Adaptive M suspension. BMW says the system can adjust the damper settings to provide optimal driving dynamics in a variety of driving situations.

The M2 also received lighter wheels and more powerful brakes. All the improvements allowed test driver Christian Gebhardt of Sport Auto to complete a full circle in 7 minutes 42 seconds.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about how a tuned Audi RS3 fought the BMW M2 CS and Mercedes-AMG A45 S in drag racing. A team of enthusiasts from the YouTube channel carwow decided to test whether the modernized version of the Audi RS3, thanks to its additional power, can overtake the BMW M2 CS and Mercedes-AMG A45 S in a straight line race.
