BMW Introduces Special Edition M3 CS

BMW Introduces Special Edition M3 CS

The engine is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with manual paddle shifters - sending all the power to the rear wheels.

For the environmentally conscious M3 CS drivers, claimed fuel consumption is 8.3 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle test, while carbon dioxide levels have been tested at 194 grams per km. Now, the German automaker has confirmed the vehicle to be the M3 CS and has officially revealed the high-performance sedan.

With the BMW M4 CS already sitting nicely in Munich's line-up, it was only a matter of time before the M3 enjoyed the same treatment.

Australian buyers hoping to own an M3 CS should be in luck, with BMW Australia saying that a small number are expected to be sold locally, but official confirmation, as well as pricing and specification details, will come closer to an anticipated launch in the third quarter of 2018.

Under the hood of the M3 CS is an uprated version of the twin-turbo inline-six powering the standard models.

That's a startling £25,000 more than the regular M3 fitted with the Competition Package.

These changes mean the M3 CS is faster than even its Competition Pack-equipped sibling, with a 0-60mph sprint of well under four seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 174mph. Additionally, the links and wheel carriers are all made from forged aluminium. Five exterior body colours are available - Alpine White, San Marino Blue Metallic, Lime Rock Grey Metallic, Frozen Dark Blue II Metallic and Black Sapphire Metallic. The M3 CS also features lighter alloy wheels, 19-inch up front and 20-inch in the back, with staggered tires.

Rubber is courtesy of Michelin with range-topping Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres measuring 265/35 at the front and 285/30 on the driven axle for grip to match the grunt. On the mechanical side, BMW engineers tweaked right about everything for better composure on the road and the track, including the Adaptive M suspension, DSC and Active M diff.

Inside the plush but schpordy leather and Alcantara interior is a red starter button, because racecar, but otherwise the cabin is relatively stripped out to help save weight. Seats and door panels are finished in two-tone leather and Alcantara, while the auto also gets BMW's top specification infotainment and a Harman Kardon sound system.
