The new BMW M4 CS closes the gap between the BMW M4 with Competition Package and the
uncompromising BMW M4 GTS.
The new BMW M4 CS, a special-edition model from BMW M GmbH, will
be produced in limited numbers from 2017 – 2019.
The M4 CS also sees BMW M GmbH introducing a new nomenclature
for its models. Positioned above the standard M models will be the
performance-boosted Competition versions. Then come the CS special edition
models, a notch higher still. Positioned on top are the
performance-maximising “brand shapers” which display a clear motor
sport or club sport character but are also fully road legal.
The new BMW M4 CS is fitted with the same six-cylinder in-line engine
with M TwinPower Turbo technology that has proved its potency in the
existing BMW M4 models. It channels the engine’s power through the
seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) as standard.
The output of the new BMW M4 CS has been raised to 338 kW/460 hp
(10 hp more than the BMW M4 with Competition Package) and peak
torque to 600 Nm / 442 lb-ft (+ 50 Nm / 37 lb-ft). Fuel economy and
emissions are the same as those of the BMW M4 Coupe with DCT (fuel
consumption combined: 8.4 l/100 km [33.6 mpg imp]*; CO2 emissions
combined: 197 g/km*).
The new BMW M4 CS sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just
3.9 seconds. Top speed is an electronically limited 280 km/h (174 mph).
The new BMW M4 CS has even sportier suspension tuning to further
Like the other BMW M4 models, the new BMW M4 CS has been honed
at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Its fastest lap is 7 min. 38 sec.
The new BMW M4 CS.
One of the key ingredients in the supreme dynamic ability of the new
BMW M4 CS is the rigorous application of lightweight design. The
bonnet, roof, front splitter, gurney, rear diffuser and even the single-piece
drive shaft consist of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The result is
a low kerb weight of just 1,580 kilograms (EU).
The weight of the door trim has also been minimised, featuring
compacted natural fibres and surfacing with a classy carbon-fibre look.
The lightweight door pull loops also enhance the sporting character of
the new BMW M4 CS.
The front splitter and spoiler lip on the boot lid have been newly designed
and reduce lift.
The new BMW M4 CS is equipped as standard with M compound brakes
featuring blue-painted four-piston brake callipers at the front and two piston
callipers at the rear. M carbon ceramic brakes with gold-coloured,
anodised six-piston brake callipers for the front and four-piston callipers
for the rear are available as an option.
A new DTM-design light-alloy wheel variant has been developed specially
for the BMW M4 CS in Orbit Grey. It comes in a 9 x 19 –inch format for
the front and 10 x 20 inches for the rear. The ten-spoke wheels are fitted
as standard with road-legal Michelin cup tyres (front: 265/35 R 19, rear:
285/30 R 20). Higher-profile sports tyres can be ordered as an option.
The sports exhaust system with four tailpipes – each with an 80-
millimetre diameter – have been carried over from the BMW M4 with
Competition Package. The four tailpipe embellishers are made from
stainless steel and carry the M logo.
Two new and exclusive colours are available for the BMW M4 CS special
edition specifically: San Marino Blue metallic and Lime Rock Grey
metallic. Plus, the M4 CS can also be ordered in Alpine White, Sapphire
Black metallic or Frozen Dark Blue II (limited availability, est. from
The interior of the new BMW M4 CS is dominated by a mixture of sporty
and sophisticated Alcantara and leather. The lightweight-design centre
console is likewise trimmed in classy Alcantara, as are the interior trim
strips. The handbrake lever gaiter is in Alcantara and also features
The optional M Alcantara steering wheel is covered with ultra-grippy,
anthracite-coloured Alcantara in the finest M tradition.
Special lightweight M sports seats with exclusive Merino leather and
Alcantara covers, plus illuminated BMW M badges in the backrests,
accentuate the sporty appearance of the M4 CS.
The new BMW M4 CS features the rear lights in futuristic OLED
(Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology with 3D effect designed
exclusively for BMW M GmbH.
Standard features designed to increase driving comfort in the
BMW M4 CS include the BMW Navigation system Professional,
automatic climate control, automatically dimming rear-view and exterior
mirrors, plus optional adaptive LED headlights with BMW Selective Beam
(dazzle-free high beam assistant).
BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim with extended features.
The new BMW M4 CS special-edition model will be built alongside the
M4 Coupe at BMW’s birthplace – Plant Munich. Production is scheduled
to begin in July 2017.
