The 2021 BMW M2 CS
There is no denying that the 2021 BMW M2 CS is a gorgeous car. It radiates a fun and sporty attitude and features gold wheels and calipers plus a vibrant Misano Blue paint colour (in this spec). From its turbocharged inline-6, the M2 CS churns out a whopping 444 horsepower and 406 pound feet of torque. It also puts the power down through a delightful manual transmission – which does have some quirks.
Both Thomas and James get excited over the way this car looks and for good reason. It is in a terrific spec. As they say during their review, you would be hard pressed to find an angle where it doesn’t look great. But the real question of the day remains: how does it drive? It is a sports car after all – and an M car at that. This means it has a lot to live up to. Especially for Thomas, who has an older M car of his own and holds the badge to a high standard.
Does it Drive as Well as it Looks?
In short, yes. The 2021 BMW M2 CS is an absolute riot. As a part of being a ‘CS’, this M2 comes with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, an extremely performance-focused set of rubber. It also has a smattering of carbon fibre and adjustable dampers – which Thomas has a few thoughts about. There are some bits that may be somewhat less desirable as James points out, such as the light clutch pedal and the lack of a driver’s side armrest. But all is most certainly forgiven, because the entire driving experience is nothing short of brilliant. With the future of BMW M cars uncertain for Thomas, he has dubbed this car the Last Great M Car – since it may just be the peak of BMW.
