BMW did not keep the M4 CS a secret. We witnessed it tested at the Nürburgring and found BMW’s applications to trademark the name “M4 CS.” So we knew it was coming. When we very first reported this model, we did not know whether it would come to the U.S. Now we know. It will.

The M4 CS will be another special limited-run special edition. This one will be placed inbetween the M4 Coupe with the Competition Package and the track-ready M4 GTS.

At the heart of all M cars is the engine and the engine of the M4 CS would be nice to have. It is still a three-liter inline six with M TwinPower Turbo technology but at four hundred sixty horsepower it puts out ten more horses than the Competition Package. This gets the M4 CS from zero to sixty two miles per hour in under four seconds—3.9 to be exact. The car comes standard with the M Driver’s Package so the top speed is one hundred seventy four miles per hour instead of the stock M4’s electronically limited 155.

The M4 CS’s engine incorporates twin mono-scroll turbochargers, a charge air cooler, High Precision Injection, Valvetronic variable valve timing, and Double-VANOS fully variable camshaft timing. For an M car, fuel mileage is pretty good, at an estimated twenty eight miles per gallon.

The M4 CS will come standard with the M tuned seven-speed M Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) with DriveLogic. It has a separate oil cooler and can effect shift switches automatically or by hand via the spanking paddle shifters. Seventh gear acts as an overdrive for better fuel consumption on trips.

The suspension is pretty much the same as the M4 with Competition Package. The links and wheel carriers at both finishes are lightweight forged aluminum. The M4 CS comes with Adaptive M Suspension. Does it work? It lapped the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife in seven minutes and thirty eight seconds. Enough said.

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) includes M Dynamic Mode (MDM) and the car comes with the Active M Differential. The control systems for the Adaptive M suspension, DSC, and Active M Differential permit the driver to select Convenience, Sport, and Sport+ driving modes with the touch of a button. M Dynamic Mode will permit managed drifts.

The light-alloy wheels (front: nine J x Nineteen, rear: ten J x 20) are off the hook to the M4 CS and come shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup two tires (front: 265/35R-19, rear: 285/30R-20). Buyers may also select Michelin Sport road tires as a no-cost option.

Inwards, the BMW M4 CS has lightweight M sports seats trimmed in leather and Alcantara. The door panel trim is made from compacted natural fibers and features pull loops. The bondage mask, with vents aft of the powerdome, and the roof are made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

This is not an austere track-only car, as the leather and Alcantera interior proves. Standard features include automatic climate control, a version of the BMW HiFi system Professional, and BMW’s Navigation system Professional.

Three large air intakes in front signal that the car means business. LED headlights are standard. The rear lights use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology and are special to the M4 CS and the M4 GTS. The CS also has the rear diffuser from the GTS. The trunk lid gets a carbon-fiber Gurney spoiler.

To stop all this power and good looks, the M4 CS has fade-resistant M compound brakes with four-piston calipers up front and twin-pots in the back.

The BMW M4 CS will be built in Munich.

This could be the M4 for which many have been waiting. It does not have the extreme, track-only interior of the M4 GTS and would be very streetable. Yet it would be ready to lay down excellent lap times if called upon to do so, at a price well under the M4 GTS.
