Extensive, model-specific lightweight design measures play a major part in moulding the performance qualities and exclusive character of the BMW M3 CS. The use of components made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) both inside and out is of key importance here.
Besides its carbon fibre roof, the special-edition model also uses this lightweight, high-tech material for its bonnet, front splitter, front air intakes, exterior mirror caps, rear diffuser and rear spoiler.
Under its carbon shell, moreover, the BMW M3 CS features optimised components for even better driving performance: The individually tuned axle kinematics and bespoke wheel camber settings, dampers, auxiliary springs and anti-roll bars serve to optimise steering precision, transmission of lateral control forces when cornering, spring and damping response and wheel location.
A sports car cockpit designed with concentrated driving pleasure and maximum performance in mind: The driver and front passenger are welcomed as standard by lightweight M Carbon bucket seats in a model-specific design.
Their black and red bi-colour finish is repeated for the two rear seats of the sedan. Another highlight is the lightweight-design centre console with red “CS” lettering made of carbon fibre.
The standard equipment roster for the BMW M3 CS also includes M seat belts with a woven stripe pattern in BMW M colours, door sill plates bearing the inscription “M3 CS”, an Anthracite-coloured headliner, interior trim strips in carbon fibre finish and an M Alcantara steering wheel with CFRP shift paddles and a red centre marker.
The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder features superior power delivery and the striking characteristic M sound. The assembly has been further developed and delivers an outstanding 405 kW (550 hp) peak output – 30 kW (40 hp) more compared to the Competition models.
The adjustments primarily involved raising the maximum charge pressure of the two mono-scroll turbochargers from 1.7 to 2.1 bar and making some model-specific tweaks to the engine management. The maximum torque is 650 Nm.
The optional lightweight M precision strut in silver-grey serves to stabilise the vehicle and impressively improve the driving dynamics.
