This i’m on a runway outside cape town got the whole place to myself, which is a good thing, because i drove the m2 competition and that car felt like it was going to kill me and this car has more power and it’s Applause. Music lighter so right before i start this review. I would like to remind you that karza koza is so much more than just a youtube channel. We have the largest selection of used cars in south africa on our website. Right now our address is cars.coza, but i imagine you’d work that out already okay drive traction control on medium let’s, go Applause, whoa, whoa, slippery; Εντάξει, all right let’s! Try go in a straight line here. Έτσι, as i was saying, the m2 competition with just over 300 kilowatts, 550 newtons using the outgoing m3 m4 motor that car i found to be pretty damn dangerous bit of a widow maker and then bmw thought no wait. That’S, not nearly dangerous enough! Let’S, give it more power, and so it’s got 10 percent more power in here the m2 club sport that’s. What cs stands for, although it’s much cooler, if you say, challenge stradale, Νομίζω, or you could just make up anything you like, like configurable sandwich, maybe that works as well mgcs, what a mental car okay! This car does not like going in a straight line, and it is very, very quick. Three liter straight six turbo under the bonnet they’ve beefed up the cooling system to take advantage of the hole that they’ve put in the nose and that hole that they put in the nose makes us look even more like a subaru, because the one they’ve given us To drive has gold wheels, gold, brake calipers and a blue paint job, so this is sort of the m2 cs copy of subaru.
I just made that up right now. That was a good one. So what is special about the cs? Καλά, they’ve sort of tweaked every aspect of it and if you go for these special wheels and the carbon fiber roof and all the rest of it, you can save up to about 53 kilograms of weight. And if you compare it to something like the a45 amgs, which we compared this two and drag races to out here with ashley oldfield, this is a hundred kgs lighter and a hundred kgs in race, car terms or performance. Car terms is massive, absolutely massive, and the thing is you can feel it changes direction so nicely absolutely razor sharp at the front end. This css fits it as standard with massive carbon ceramic brakes. Eight pot calipers up front. The brakes are stupendous in this car pilot sport cup tires wrapped around the rims. Those are uber special tires. You’Ve got to be careful with them in the wet. If you wake up and you’ve got an m2 cs and it’s pouring with rain, maybe just you know take the bus walk cycle. Anything would be safer really than this, but for all its danger the traction control system is fantastic. If you are not a superb driver – and i mean superb – like actually all field levels of driving ability here, then do not take the traction control off just do not. You will very quickly have an accident, as i proved when ashley and i were reviewing this card together.
Maybe we’ll cut that footage in now. So you can laugh at me yeah, it didn’t go well, it didn’t go well for me, but even though this car is a widow maker, i just like the fact that it exists i’m, just glad that there’s a manufacturer out there that still makes batshit crazy cars. I don’t know call me old fashioned, but that’s pretty cool. I don’t want one of these. I don’t necessarily aspire to own one. I’D love it. If you gave it to me, you’re very, very happy but i’m just glad it exists. Does that make sense? Ξέρεις. I mean it’s literally spins, all the way every second there we go. Δεύτερη, four go in a straight line: you bloody mentalist sheesh. You have to be awake when you drive this car, goodness me and with the traction control on, i just feel a lot more confident. I just know that the german wizardry inside all of his cars computers is going to save my ass. When i run out of talent here we go here’s a nice tight left, hander. Second gear 5000 rpm through the apex, get on the throttle and it’s getting all twitchy at the back, but i made it through and i’m alive, Ναι, success. Ευχαριστούμε. Traction control, crikey. That was quick, we’re back up to 180 there in almost no time zero to 100, even though it’s rear wheel drive is only 0.1 of a second slower than in the a45 s, but as we’ve discovered from trying to launch this for drag races, it’s particularly difficult To launch this car, it really really is you’re, not gon na get off the line quickly.
This is not a robot to robot champion. This is a proper track special and it still annoys me immensely that you lose your warranty or part of your warranty. If bmw can prove that, you took a car and a track so they’ll sell you a car which is literally designed for track use and then take your warranty away. If you do what it’s intended to do, which drives me absolutely nuts but anyway, but i think this can’t be your daily, κατά τη γνώμη μου, it’s a little bit too hardcore it’s a little bit too compromised. I think this is going to be your second or maybe third car you take it out on the weekends for blast, you take it to check days and then you’re on to a winner. Εδώ, Χειροκροτήματα – and so i hear you saying chiron, i would love an m2 cs and yes, you can have one so the way. Bmw, south africa did this. Was they auctioned the 30 units they brought into the country? This is actually number 30 του 30, which is quite interesting, and the reserve price was 1.6 million rad, which is about 500 000 more than an m2 competition, which is a lot and they all got snapped up. And now there are one or two on the market, but people are asking over 2 million rand for them. Έτσι, Ναι, you can have an m2cs, even though it is extremely limited run, but you’re spending, 2 million rad and 2 million rand means this car has some serious competition competition in the form of something like the porsche cayman gt4, which is probably one of the best Cars i have ever driven also has a much lower center of gravity than this car.
Αυτό είναι, as ashley says, very much still a tin top racer. You drive it quite differently to that of the porsche, but in some ways this is almost or is as visceral as something like a cayman gt4. You are getting tons of feedback in this car. This is quite possibly the most visceral bmw m experience that you can get right now and in a modern world where cars are starting to feel very numb and very dialed down. That is awesome right. Should you buy an m2 cs? Καλά, i assume that since you’re, looking at one of these special edition, m2s money is not really an issue, so let’s just skirt over that completely let’s just talk about the car, and i think you need to be honest with yourself. You know the thing is driving is a bit like sex. Men always think that they’re better at it than they actually are. So you really you need to take a take a long, σκληρό. Look at yourself. Are you an excellent driver? Εάν είστε, if you have a lot of experience, but maybe racing experience, then yes, you will love the m2 because you will be able to manhandle this thing or woman handle this thing just make that up into submission and you’ll enjoy it. You’Ll get every inch out of it. Probably won’t kill you and that’s great. Then you’ll really really enjoy this car, but i think for an average driver like myself, a regular peasant motorist.
This is a bit too wild it’s, just a bit too dramatic, it’s a bit too much it’s a bit too larry it’s a bit too twitchy at the rear, a bit too much power going through those rear tires. Then you know makes me comfortable, and so i wouldn’t go for this car. Το λατρεύω, but i wouldn’t buy one. So i hope that helps. Ευχαριστούμε.
