The first BMW M2 CS Racing Cup Italy championship is ready to go
Starting from the base of the BMW M2 CS and with the collaboration of BMW M GmbH, the engineers of BMW Motorsport they used many of the insights from the development of the BMW M4 GT4 to set totally new standards in the lower category.

The new racing car is powered by an in-line six-cylinder engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology which, with a displacement of 2,979 cc in the racing version, reaches an output of between 280hp and 450hp, depending on the Balance of Performance (BoP) of the competition class.
The maximum torque of 550 Nm is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox that has been configured for track racing. Another highlight of the BMW M2 CS Racing is the engine management. As with the BMW M4 GT4, it will be controlled via power sticks, which allow you to program and activate various power levels depending on the established Balance of Performance.
