BMW M3 CS Limited Run Special Edition Revealed

The Twin Power 3.0-liter six makes 28 hp and 37 lb-ft of torque more than a standard M3

Now the Bavarian carmaker has announced a CS version of the M3 Sedan, to build a bridge to those buyers who want all that dynamic scrumptiousness in a more practical four-door wrapping.

The M3 Competition's 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine has been given a tickle, now producing 338kW of power at 6250rpm and 600Nm of torque from 4000rpm to 5380rpm in the M3 CS, up 7kW and 50Nm.

The chassis is, for the most part, the same as the M3 with Competition Package, but with some mods to give even more stiffness where it counts. Tasked with harnessing the resources is a seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission (DCT) with Drivelogic. BMW says that the power bump means the M3 CS hits 60mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 174 miles per hour.

That performance doesn't come cheap, though, with the M3 CS carrying a £86,000 price tag.

Josh Gordon's goal 'to be best wide receiver of all time'
Gordon was indeed the best receiver in the league back in 2013, when his 1,646 yards in just 14 games topped all NFL wideouts. Four years later, he's played in just five games while being suspended several times for substance abuse violations.

A few weeks ago, our spies spotted a more potent version of the BMW M3 doing laps around the Nurburgring.

The body has also been altered, with the CS coming with a front splitter and rear diffuser, as well as a boot lip spoiler for added downforce - all of which are made from lightweight carbon-fibre-reinforced plastics. These items contribute to a 10-kg weight saving over the regular M3. The hood is also unique to the M3 CS as it features a more prominent power bulge.

Five paint colours are on offer, including "San Marino Blue", "Lime Rock Grey, "Frozen Dark Blue II" and "Black Sapphire" metallics, as well as the no-cost 'Alpine White". Making the connection between auto and asphalt is a set of light-alloy wheels (19 inches up front, 20 inches at the back) wearing Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. The M3 CS feature Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires; 265/35ZR-19 up front and 285/30ZR-20 in the rear.

Additionally, the auto will sport an exclusive interior design highlight with Alcantara and two-tone leather in Silverstone/Black. While underneath you'll find a "motorsport influenced" Active-M suspension set-up - complete with double-wishbones at the rear and a Competition Package setting for the springs and dampers - and a specially tuned M Sport exhaust system. But, despite its reductionist nature, the M3 CS still boasts amenities such as climate control and a Harman Kardon Surround Sound System.
