BMW M4 CS revealed with 460 hp, M4 GTS styling

Share

The BMW M4 CS is equipped with a 3.0 litre twin turbo power pant that develops 460 horsepower, this give the auto some impressive figures.

Although van Meel suggests development was focused more on overall dynamic improvement rather than pure straight-line speed, the M4 CS out-performs the M4 Competition Package off the line with a claimed 0-62mph time of 3.9sec versus 4.2sec.

If you're in the market for a BMW M4, and you need something a little more exciting than the standard vehicle fitted with the Competition Package, what are your options? Overall it's a handsome design that's far more subtle than the big-winged M4 GTS.

The CS now becomes the most potent M4.

BMW also sidestepped giving it the CSL badge, even though it uses a carbon fibre roof, boot and bonnet and even though the engine delivers another 50Nm of torque and an extra 7.5kW.

Factor in lightened door trim panels (made from "compacted natural fibres" apparently), and the CS has dropped 32kg.

The M4 CS fills the gap between the M4 equipped with the Competition Package and the hardcore, water-injected M4 GTS.

So what is a BMW M4 CS? Based on the standard M2, the BMW M2 CS is said to borrow the engine from the M4.

Brakes consist of four-piston calipers at the front gripping steel rotors with twin-piston calipers at the rear while a carbon-ceramic compound rotor option is available which ups the ante to six-piston front calipers and four-piston rears.

BMW is only producing a limited number of the CS, with a small handful expected to be offered in Australia later this year.

A carbon fibre lip spoiler and diffuser will be the most obvious differences for most, though keen eyes will notice a new set of rear lights - the same as are seen on the GTS. That means it has 29 more hp than the standard M4 coupe and 10 more hp than the Competition model. The control systems for the Adaptive M suspension, DSC and Active M Differential have been tuned to suit the dynamic requirements of the BMW M4 CS, as has the set-up of the electromechanical steering. These semi-slick cup tyres, which are also road-legal, provide unbeatable grip and supreme lateral stability at high track speeds, as well as optimum traction out of hairpins.

The generous use of leather and Alcantara allows the M4 CS to create a compelling and well-resolved ambience brimming with sporting intent and undeniable class.
