BMW M3 CS: Here It Is

BMW M3 CS: Here It Is

The all-new BMW M3 CS has been introduced and now there's a video showcasing the sports sedan. BMW says they reduce weight by a total of 110 lb. over the standard BMW M3. It has four doors.

The CS is the ultimate M3 with ramped up power and performance. But that's not the case here. That's a small gain compared to the 444-hp Competition Package, but it's enough to make the CS the most powerful M3 ever, though its coupe sibling offered 503 hp in the M4 GTS. BMW's stock M3 comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine that generates 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque.

In part this is achieved by the increase in power but it is also down to the weight reduction on the new variant.

While the exterior gets a unique front apron design, a specially designed trunk lip spoiler and a host of panels formed from carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) to minimise weight and help lower the centre of gravity. The power is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Anywho, BMW says the M3 CS will run from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 174 miles per hour. There's also the promise of an exhaust note worthy of CS badging. BMW also adds twin-LED headlights as standard. Adaptive dampers complement retuned spring rates, and the driver has a choice of three operating modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport+. Positioned directly upstream from the rear silencers, the flaps are controlled electrically and are created to provide optimum feedback on the engine's load state throughout the rev range as well as generate that unmistakable, sporty M sound.

Externally there are a number of changes over the standard M3, these include special edition light alloy wheels. The standard CS brakes are BMW's lightweight M Compound, with 4-piston calipers front, 2-piston rears.

Inside the new BMW M3 CS, gets two-tone full leather in Silverstone/Black and Alcantara, automatic climate control, a Harman Kardon surround sound system and the Navigation system Professional.

Production of the super-saloon will be capped worldwide to just 1,200 units, with 550 units slated for USA delivery. What's not clear at this point is pricing. In comparison, the Competition Package can hit 3.8.
