If in a BMW there are some sports for excellence, among all the they currently have in their range, that is the BMW M4. Almost 3 decades of history has the M3 that, after the change of names to separate the car bodies, classic coupes, was going to be called M4 and belong to the 4 Series instead of 3 Series. In the end, comes to the same thing, since the only changes between the current M3 and M4 are the forms of your body.
Be that as it may, the BMW M4 is one of the cars most desired by the passionate of the world of the engine. Without being a super sports car, the sports coupé from BMW transmits a sensations of authentic infarction. We already tested the BMW M3 a few years ago; a car that left us speechless. Now, the German company presented, in the Hall of Shanghai, the BMW M4 CS. It is a special edition that increases the power up to 460 HP, being above the M4 “normal” (431 HP) and below the radical M4 GTS (500 HP).
Yes, the name BMW M4 CS-te sound of something. Last year the company launched, exclusively for the Spanish market, a version with the same denomination. Their production was limited to only 60 units, which developed a maximum power of 450 CV and, in addition, they brought an important specific package with a multitude of optional elements.
The BMW M4 CS 2017 that today we bring to you goes beyond. Account with the Competition Pack and eroga, as we have already quoted, 460 HP. The engine block remains the same 3-liter supercharged. The slight increase of power, next to the 600 Nm of torque, allows you to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, reducing to one tenth the time of the M4 “to dry”. Meanwhile, its maximum speed limited to now is in 280 km/h.
Says BMW, which is ideal for circuit runs as well as the day-to-day; but if you are one of the most purists, as it will not do you so much grace that the German firm only trades with transmission of double clutch and 7-speed. On the other hand, yeah you like that its time to turn in the old Nürburgring is only 7 minutes 38 seconds.
with Respect to chassis, the BMW M4 CS brings a suspension similar to the BMW M4 with package competition. When you use light weight materials reduces the unsprung masses, thereby achieving greater agility and dynamism. The suspension is adaptive and has been conveniently tuning to improve the behavior, as well as the settings of differential and electronic systems of stability.
The tires mounted this new edition are the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, with 19 inches on the front axle and 20 in the rear. So much power is “subject to”, in addition to the tires, with a system brakes carbon ceramic with six-piston calipers on the front wheels and four pistons in the rear.
We aesthetics exterior, and it is that this BMW M4 CS brings some elements that differentiate it from the rest of M4. We started at the front, where we find a lower lip quite striking done in carbon fiber. In addition to increase the “downforce”, it directs the air towards the radiators and the front brakes. In the same finish and with the same material of manufacture comes a small back spoiler on the trunk lid, which brings a lot of character and a great contrast with the “San Marino Blue Metallic” that we see in the images.
If in terms of power and performance was found between the BMW M4 and BMW M4 GTS, it was expected that the BMW M4 CS was also a price intermediate. It was also hoped that it was not a cheap car, or accessible to the majority of mortals. The price published for the German market is of 116.900 euros. The M4 conventional is considerably cheaper in Germany than in Spain, so the price of this M4 CS for our country will be higher than the announced in Germany; although it has not yet been confirmed.
