This modified BMW M2 is not cheap.
The BMW M2 CS is one the best M cars BMW has built in a long time. Based on the already brilliant M2, the CS is faster and lighter than the standard car, making it even more fun to drive on the road and track. But G-Power thinks there's still room for improvement.
As standard, the BMW M2 CS is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six engine generating 444 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque. That's already 39 more horses than the M2 Competition, but the German tuner has tinkered under the hood to give the M2 CS a colossal boost, and the result is spectacular: BMW's best M car just got better.
G-Power offers four tuning packages for the M2 CS. A stage 1 kit adds a central screw lock for the crankshaft and optimizes the software to increase the output to 493 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 49 hp and 74 lb-ft over the standard M2 CS.
Upgrading to Stage 2 tweaks the ECU and adds a stainless steel exhaust system to boost the power up to 532 hp and 502 lb-ft, while installing new sport downpipes extracts 562 hp and 531 lb-ft from the 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine in the tuner's Stage 3 upgrade.
If that's still not enough power for you, G-Power's Stage 4 kit adds new injectors and upgrades the turbocharger to increase the output to 651 hp and 590 lb-ft - that's more power than you get in some modern supercars like the Lamborghini Huracan Evo and Ferrari Roma.
G-Power hasn't said how this extra muscle has affected the car's performance, but it's safe to assume it will be faster than the standard M2's 0-60 mph sprint time of 3.8 seconds with an automatic transmission.
Unsurprisingly, these upgrades are not cheap. G-Power is selling the Stage 4 upgrade for €18,226 ($21,788) - that's on top of the base car, which starts at $83,600. In total, the modified M2 costs over $100,000 with the most powerful performance upgrade. That may sound like a lot for a modified M2 CS, but it's still around $100,000 cheaper than a Lamborghini Huracan Evo or Ferrari Roma.
If you still have some spare change left, G-Power also offers cosmetic upgrades for the M2 CS including 20-inch forged wheels wrapped in 245/30 R20 and 265/30 R20 tires, a carbon-fiber engine cover, and a sports steering wheel. Other available modifications include an increased V-max and special transmission software.
