We’ve seen quite a few tuned BMW M2s over the years, yet not many are as crazy as this 2018 Competition model. Unofficially named the M2 CSL Turbomeister Edition, it is a privately owned car that has been comprehensively modified.
Topaz was in charge of protecting the orange (Inka 22 – a BMW historical color used on the 2002) and black body, and the special decals, whereas Alpha-N signed the carbon roof. The performance exhaust system, whose quad tailpipes are housed in the new diffuser, came from Akrapovic, the 19-inch wheels bear BBS’ signature and the matte black side skirts were made by AC Schnitzer.
At the same time, BMW’s design department allowed the owner to check out the 2002 Hommage Concept from 2016 in real life for inspiration.

A full suspension kit from AST was installed, while the front brakes discs were replaced by smaller offerings from Nashin that keep the six-pot calipers in place. This move alone has allowed the car to shed 16 kg (35 lbs), and all the mods resulted in a total weight reduction of more than 110 kg (243 lbs). The brake lines were swapped for new ones and the brake pads were also changed. The rear axle retains the stock brakes, although all four calipers were painted orange.
In addition to the aftermarket titanium exhaust, the M2 CSL Turbomeister features an Eventuri air intake and a few other mods that have lifted the output and torque of the twin-turbo 3.0-liter straight-six to 520 PS (513 HP / 382 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft). This represents a 110 PS (108 HP / 81 kW) and 110 Nm (81 lb-ft) increase over the stock car, which does the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in just a little over 4 seconds with the optional seven-speed DCT transmission, before maxing out at 250 km/h (155 mph), or 280 km/h (174 mph) with the M Driver’s Package.
Greeting users upon opening the door are the bespoke puddle lights, and once inside, they will see the Alcantara and leather wrapped steering wheel with red 12 o’clock marker and custom paddle shifters. It also sports carbon fiber and Alcantara for the gear shifter and handbrake lever, M Performance pedal covers and an additional display mounted in the middle of the dashboard for the diagnostic data.
