Munich. At the prestigious Angeles Auto Show (22 November to 1 December, press days 18 to 21 November), the BMW M GmbH will be showcasing its entire spectrum with two premieres. The BMW M8 Gran Coupe will celebrate its world debut at the LA Convention Center and is the new top model in the range of high-performance vehicles from BMW M GmbH. The limited special edition BMW M2 CS, a high-performance sports car designed for the premium compact segment and also suitable for everyday use, is being presented for the first time at a motor show in the USA. At the same time, it forms the basis for the BMW M2 CS Racing, the future entry model from BMW M Motorsport. “The Los Angeles Auto Show is a very special event for the BMW M GmbH as we will be able to exhibit the whole spectrum and diversity of our BMW M range, with two vehicles making their debuts. The BMW M8 Gran Coupe stands for the perfect combination of sportiness and luxurious elegance. The BMW M2 CS is young, wild, extroverted and conveys sheer sportiness,” says Markus Flasch, CEO of the BMW M GmbH. At the Los Angeles Auto Show, the latest versions of the Sports Activity Vehicles BMW X5 M / X5 M Competition and the Sports Activity Coupes BMW X6 M / X6 M Competition will also be on display, each of them being the sportiest models in their respective vehicle segments.

The BMW M8 Gran Coupe is an individual, exclusive and luxurious sports car with distinctive high-performance characteristics and delivers an intensive performance experience on all four fully-fledged seats. Its 4.4-litre V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology delivers 441 kW/600 hp, in the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe  460 kW/625 hp. The BMW M2 CS features numerous carbon components – for example the CFRP roof being used for the first time on the BMW M2 – an extremey sporty design, a twin-charged, six-cylinder engine with 331 kW (450 hp) and the adaptive M Sport suspension. With the new top model positioned above the BMW M2 Competition, BMW M is offering for the first time in the premium compact segment a highly emotional and limited special CS edition model. The BMW M2 CS is the first CS model from BMW available with a 6-speed manual transmission. It is designed entirely for outstanding performance on the racetrack, without compromising on day-to-day use. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 /4.0 seconds with the optional 7-speed M dual clutch transmission (M DCT) is equally as impressive as the braking performance of the standard M sports brakes or the optionally available BMW M carbon ceramic brakes.

Following the largest product offensive to date, the BMW M range now offers an impressive spectrum, starting with the compact high-performance sports car BMW M2 CS. Furthermore, it comprises powerful SAV/SAC models, which in addition to the BMW X5 M / X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M / X6 M Competition also include the BMW X3 M / X3 M Competition and the BMW X4 M / X4 M Competition, which were first introduced in the summer of 2019. Leading the range we have the BMW M8 Competition Gran Coupe, the luxurious top model. The USA is the most important market worldwide for BMW M, with most of the BMW M vehicles sold in 2019 going to America.

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption and range were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the German automotive market. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures have already been calculated based on the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC figures listed have been adjusted to the NEDC measurement method where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the assessment of taxes and other vehicle-related duties which are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies.
