BMW is bridging the gap between the M4 and M4 GTS in Spain with a limited-run M4 CS.
In a rather surprising move, BMW’s M4 CS is destined to be sold exclusively in Spain where only 60 units will be offered. This is basically a more civilized variant of the M4 GTS and will come with rear seats, 20-inch silver (as opposed to GTS’ gold) wheels, carbon ceramic brakes, and an adaptive M chassis. The high-performance coupe will be available with the seven-speed, dual-clutch M DCT gearbox, and as the attached teaser image show it will get a prominent rear wing.
The turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine will have more than the 431 horsepower (317 kilowatts) of the regular M4, but less than the 500 hp (368 kW) provided by the M4 GTS. It’s the same story with weight, as the Spain-only M4 CS will be lighter than an M4 (1,590 kilograms / 3,505 pounds), but heavier than the M4 GTS (1,510 kg / 3,328 pounds).
While the M4’s electronic top speed limiter is programmed to kick in at 155 mph (250 kph), Spaniards will be able to take the M4 CS up to 174 mph (280 kph), still significantly less than the 190 mph (305 kph) of the M4 GTS.
An official introduction of the BMW M4 CS is programmed to take place in the near future. There’s no word about pricing, but obviously it will be more expensive than a regular M4 which in Spain begins at €92,099.
