Too excited for this.

But I think that this is a CS, rather than CSL.

I don't see a cage in the back, and the spoiler looks more reminiscent of the M3/4 CS, rather than what we've seen on GTS models. I know the E46 CSL has a ducktail spoiler, so I could be wrong.

Either way I think this is also the last hurrah for the F87 M2.

My guess is $73,900 for a bare bones CS.

I was confused myself.

I think this will be a CS model with some half assed weight savings.

M3 CS starting price --> $98,250
M3 Comp starting price --> $72,200

So M3 CS costs 36% more than M3 Comp and this is without CCBs. With CCBs, the price difference is $34K (47% more than Comp).

If you apply the same premium over M2C, it might cost around $80K without CCBs or $87K with CCBs.

How much HP increase was there from the regular M3/4 to the M3/4 CS?

What are we expecting it will be for the M2CSL?

Also, I thought the progression was to CS then to CSL???

How do we know it will be a 1 year limited run?

Sorry for all the Q's.....so, many things racing in my mind right now

Yeah I see the white vinyl parts, but this looks like HS to me especially the rearbumper part.

That makes sense to me - these aren't going to be for the faint of heart, from a pricing perspective.

I also think it will be a CS, not a CSL.

Since the F80/82 only went to a CS level, I can't see an M2 getting the CSL moniker before the M3/4. Perhaps we will see that in the G series cars though, since we now know the new hierarchy of M cars: Base --> Competition --> CS --> CSL

Base M4 (425HP, 431PS), M4 Comp (444HP, 450PS), M4 CS (454HP, 460PS), M4 GTS (493HP, 500PS)

This car will probably arrive in 2020 towards the end of production for F87 generation so that's why it'll probably be limited run.

This car does not need any more HP it needs to reduce its weight!

for a street car...unfortunately based on the M4 GTS experience, BMW is probably all out of ideas. Maybe expect around a 100lb weight reduction due to additional carbon fiber usage in body panels, aluminum suspension parts and removal of backseats.

For a track car, you'll go broke running carbon brakes. $600 pad replacements after about 3 track days, not to mention $12k rotor replacements after about 8. Here's the bimmerpost member who's done it:

Looks like it is equipped with DCT (silver paddle shifter), like every CS/CSL/ GTS of the last few generations of M cars

Here is to hoping it is offered with a manual as well....
