Surprise! BMW M3 CS Confirmed in First Spy Pics! [Updated with videos]

BMW M3 CS Confirmed in First Spy Pics!
291
COMMENTS




Just as the BMW M4 CS is getting ready hit customer's hands, the F80 M3 CS has now been spotted for the first time! The M3 CS will represent the top M3 model as it's positioned above the Competition package and unlike the M4 there is currently no GTS model sitting atop the M3 range.

Expect the M3 CS to share mechanicals and boast similar performance to the M4 CS. That means a power output of 460 horsepowers (10 more than Competition Package) from the same 3.0L turbo inline six, good for 0-60 in just under 4 seconds (M4 CS is quoted from 0-62mph in 3.9s). It will feature a 7 speed DCT and no manual option is expected.

Suspension and tires will be shared with the M4 CS as well. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires will keep the M3 CS glued to the ground which should allow it to lap the Nurburgring close to the M4 CS's 7:38 Nurburgring time. The Active M Differential will be specifically tuned just for the M3 CS. M carbon ceramic brakes will be an option.

Beyond the performance similarities, these spy photos show that the M3 CS will also share styling and aero with the M4 CS -- the CS-specific carbon fiber hood, front splitter lip, and trunk spoiler lip. The interior will feature lightweight door pulls and lightweight door panels.

Win win win

The BMW Gods do listen. BMW can keep the OLEDs and the Carbons and keep it under 75 base without options I would be sold.

Color me very intrigued.

I still have to wonder if its really, truly a CS though. What about OLED tail lights? Those are no doubt a big contributor to the M4 CS price over a standard M4 Competition Package. So the CS will have to be priced thousands less than the M4 CS. Are people really going to be willing to pony up, let's SWAG it at $6k more, just for the privilege of the OLED tail lights and the two door body? It seems like a dubious product structure and strategy.

If it is a CS, I have plenty of crow to eat. In my defense, there have been lots of claims but no pictures, no credible inside info, and no other evidence.

Anyway thanks for posting the pics, Jason!

Aha! There it is the elusive M3 CS prototype .

Interesting that it has the pre-LCI headlights and the standard exhaust tips though.

If it turns out to be an M3 CS, I will happily do just that.

They need to ditch that S55 and make an S58 with a keyed crank hub at minimum. Bmw keeps making pretty cars that have garbage engines.

I'll be watching this very closely. If there is even a hint of a rumor to be offering this in a 6spd, I'll march my happy ass right down to the dealer right now and put a deposit on this sucker.

Id rather not spend the money upgrading the orange turd I have now, but if that's what it takes to get a man pedal, so be it.

and +1 for OLED tail lights. I'd be willing to reverse-engineer a set of the internals into an F80 housing and reassemble, if anyone would want in on a group buy.

If you think that's the worst thing that could happen, just be glad you've never owned an N62.

Wow I know a lot of people that are going to be hyped about this one. Especially as it's not a limited production model.

It's awesome but I couldn't live with stock ride height, and I'm not sure I would want to mess with the suspension on this...

Why oh why don't they let people spec the M performance HAS as a FACTORY fitted item!
