2019 BMW M2 Competition testing on the Nurburgring

In this video you see the 2019 BMW M2 Competition (M2 CS) testing on the N?rburgring. There is very little doubt that BMW is preparing at least one special edition of their highly successful M2 Coupe. Hints of a supped M2 appeared last year, followed by several reports on its powertrain and more recently, hard facts based on pre-production VINs. While the most of the details seem to be known at this point, including the S55 engine implant from the M3/M4, there is one little, yet important to BMW fans, detail around the naming convention of the new sports coupe. Over the last few months we went back and forth between the M2 CS and M2 Competition badge, but today, we can say with certainty that BMW will sell the revamped sports coupe under the M2 Competition nameplate. Despite seeing several prototypes out for testing, BMW plans to unveil the M2 Competition in late 2018 with a market launch scheduled for early 2019. Under the hood it will feature the 3.0-liter S55 petrol engine from the M3/M4 with a maximum power of 405 hp. The engine will be mated to a 7-speed M-DCT transmission or a six-speed manual.
