BMW first rolled out its high-performance CS package on the M4 coupe. In fact, the package has only been available on two-door models, until now.
What will make the new BMW M3 CS stand apart is a carbon fiber-enhanced body that will ensure the car is lightweight and agile. It’s performance will be aided by a 3.0-liter twin turbo inline six that’s been tweaked to produce 453-horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque — gains of 28 and 37, respectively, over the standard M3.
The M3 CS will also receive a heavily revised suspension system that includes aluminum front and rear axles, a seven-speed M Double Clutch transmission with Drivelogic, beefier brakes, and an interior bathed in two-tone leather and Alcantara.
The 2018 BMW M3 CS will be limited to just 1,200 units and will enter production in March of next year. The current M3 is priced at 64,495, but you can expect the that price to hover around the $90,000-range with the Competition Package.
