BMW is purportedly working on an even lighter and faster version of the M2 Coupe.
According to German publication, Auto Motor und Sport, the Bavarian company’s bosses have approved the more powerful, stripped back, track focus M2 Coupe, which could take on the GTS moniker. The CSL name has also been mentioned.
Like the M4 GTS Coupe, the hardcore M2 will likely feature lightweight carbon fibre body panels, a stripped out cabin with less sound-deadening materials and no rear seats, along with an aerodynamic kit to make it lighter and more slippery than the donor car.
Its uprated turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six is said to churn out close to 294kW. Matched with BMW’s 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission, we should see the M2 GTS demolish 0-100km/h in less than the 4.3 seconds required by the standard car.
Its chassis will gain an adjustable suspension and more powerful larger brakes to go with the lighter body and increase power output.
