BMW M4 CS Australian pricing and specs announced

Pricing and specifications for the Australian delivered BMW M4 CS has been revealed, with the top-dog of the refreshed range set to draw $211,610 from the wallets of those who want one.

The twin-turbo, 3.0-litre straight-six powered-coupe will dish out 338kW/600Nm, scoring an extra 7kW over the previous M4 Competition. The CS is, however, $50K dearer.

The good news is that it has a claimed 0-100km/h time three tenths faster than the Competition at 3.9 seconds. Only a tenth slower than the $295K GTS.

The car is, however, electronically speed limited to a top of 280km/h, not that most people will reach that in Australia.

A seven-speed dual-clutch gets power to the rear axle, which is then divided up by an electronically-controlled, multi-plate Active M Differential.

Dual-branch sports exhaust system with 80mm quad-tailpipes will make for a rowdy soundtrack, while electronically-controlled exhaust flaps give the driver options for volume.

The CS also features M Launch Control, M Dynamic Mode with limited traction control, and full deactivation of traction control, as an M car should.

Inside, leather and Alcantara are plentiful, with etched CS badges and M stitching abundant.

“The queue for the M4 CS starts here,” says BMW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner.

“From its uniquely aggressive appearance to its additional performance over the M4 Competition, the BMW M4 CS is a worthy hero for the recently-updated M4 range.

“Lighter weight and more power ensure an even more dynamic drive than the M4 Competition, but with additional everyday capability and luxury than the M4 GTS.”

Aussie punters will be able to get their decidedly wealthy hands on an M4 CS at the end of 2017.
