BMW M3 CS, with 550 HP and 3.4 seconds in the 0-100 km/h

In a few weeks the brand will present the new CS after having unveiled the new M4 CSL months ago.

Here is the new BMW M3 CS, with 550 hp and 3.4 seconds in 0-100 km/h. In a few weeks the brand will present the new CS after having unveiled the new M4 CSL months ago. And from the latter it takes, for example, the power, since it reaches the same figure based on modifications in its block. Likewise, it is in charge of making it more radical with different equipment focused on the circuit.

The new CS takes inspiration from the DTM champion. And not only inspiration, but also technical solutions. Among other things, the cylinders feature arc-wire powder coated iron bores that reduce friction, the crankshaft is now lighter, and the cylinder head is largely 3D-printed. This improves the cooling ducts and the oil supply.

The increase in the pressure of the two turbos from 1.7 to 2.1 bars, added to other tweaks in engine management, make the mechanics go from 510 to 550 horsepower. It maintains, of course, the 650 Nm of torque, all to go from 0-100 in 3.4 seconds, reach 200 km/h in 11.1 seconds and declare a recovery from 80-120 km/h in just 2, 6 seconds. In addition, thanks to the standard M Driver package in the CS, it reaches a maximum speed of 302 km/h.

All this energy is managed by the 8-speed Steptronic transmission. This transmission can be configured for normal, sport or circuit use. You can do this with the Drivelogic button integrated into the gear lever, since M xDrive traction is standard. It can act in 4WD, 4WD Sport or 2WD mode. The first two will send more torque to the rear wheels while the last one will do so only to the rear axle.

In terms of equipment, the new M3 CS comes standard with spectacular 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels. They have a Gold Bronze finish, some wheels that hide the M Compound brakes and that can become carbon-ceramic if you choose them that way. The tires measure 275/35 ZR 19 in front and 285/30 ZR 20 in the rear and are focused on the circuit. Likewise, more “rational” tires can be ordered.

The roof, the bonnet, the front splitter, the front air intakes, the mirror housings, the diffuser, the rear spoiler and the M seats have been made of carbon fiber. These seats, despite their focus, have electrical regulation and heating. The gear paddles, center console and interior trim are made of CFRP, carbon fiber reinforced plastic. In addition, it mounts a titanium silencer.

With all this, BMW achieves a weight reduction of 20 kg compared to the M3 Competition. Soon we will know more about this BMW M3 CS, such as its price. In this section, a rate much higher than that of the F80 is expected.
