Watch The BMW M2 Competition Carve Up The Nurburgring

Spy Video

With over 400-hp on tap, the M2 is about to get even more tail-happy if this video is anything to go by.

Now that the BMW M3 CS is out in the wild, it’s surely only a matter of time before the M2 gets the CS treatment. BMW has yet to officially announce it, but we already know that a hardcore M2 is in development thanks to spy shots and videos showing prototypes being tested. Previously known as the M2 CS, recent reports suggested that the more potent M2 will be sold under BMW’s Competition nameplate. Our latest look at the M2 Competition comes courtesy of Automotive Mike in a new spy video.

Once again we get to see the hot M2 getting an extensive workout at its natural proving ground: the Nurburgring. In some laps, we even get to see the M2 Competition pull off some tire-squealing powerslides for the camera, as its extra horsepower seems to have made it even more tail-happy.

It sounds savage no matter how hard it gets pushed, but that probably shouldn’t be surprising. Rumors have suggested it will be powered by the same 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six from the M3 and M4 detuned to 405-horsepower. This would be a welcome upgrade from the current M2’s 365-hp without overpowering its bigger M3 and M4 CS brothers. A six-speed manual transmission will be offered as standard, with an optional seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic also available. It will also be fitted with an array of aero-enhancing body parts, and we can also probably expect similar mechanical tweaks as the M3 CS such as BMW’s Active M-suspension.

Recent reports suggested that the hardcore M2 Competition will replace the standard M2 next year. Others, however, are claiming it will be sold as a limited-edition model restricted to 1,000 units. Either way, the M2 Competition is looking like the hardcore M2 purists have been waiting for, but we’ll probably have to wait until next year for it to be revealed at the earliest.
