The world’s largest luxury automaker is going to treat its Spanish audience to a special series model – the M4 CS which is going to be a limited-run edition designed to slot in below the hardcore M4 GTS.
This is a bit surprising but BMW has decided to make the M4 CS exclusive to Spain and the production run will only span 60 units. We’re treated here to a beefed up M4 – or you can say it’s a toned down M4 GTS – with the M4 CS adding back the rear seats and wearing 20-inch silver (as opposed to GTS’ gold) alloys, carbon ceramic brakes, and an adaptive M chassis. The high-performance model will be only offered with the seven-speed, dual-clutch M DCT auto transmission and we can see from this teaser it will also be wearing a massive rear wing. The turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine should come to the party with more than the 431 horsepower (317 kilowatts) of the standard M4, though it won’t trample the territory of the M4 GTS which has 500 hp (368 kW).
The same idea is for the light weighting procedure, with the Spanish-exclusive M4 CS going on a diet compared to the M4 (1,590 kilograms / 3,505 pounds), though the reduction will not reach the M4 GTS (1,510 kg / 3,328 pounds) credentials. Top speed will be electronically governed at 174 mph (280 km/h), which is again more than what the M4 is allowed to do (155 mph – 250 km/h) but less than the M4 GTS which tops out at 190 mph (305 km/h).
