BMW Takes Wraps Off Most Potent Model in M4 Lineup

2017 Shanghai Auto Show

Planned for North American delivery in early 2018, the M4 CS holds true to BMWs earlier club sport traditions, boasting a more powerful engine than even the competition-package-equipped version of the standard M4 now on sale in the U.S.

Aerodynamics, weight savings pay off in BMWs 454-hp M4 CS.

BMWs M performance-car division reveals the new 454-hp M4 CS, heralding a new line of limited-edition Club Sport models positioned above the existing range of standard M models but below the ultra-low-volume, stripped-out GTS specials typically launched toward the end of the life of selected M models.

Unveiled by BMW M division Chairman Frank van Meel at the Shanghai auto show, the latest member of the M4 lineup resurrects the CS nomenclature first used by the German automaker on the 2000CS in 1965 but more prominently applied to the 3000CS launched in 1971.

Planned for North American delivery in early 2018, the most powerful M4 model yet holds true to BMWs earlier club sport traditions, boasting a more powerful engine than even the competition-package-equipped version of the standard M4 already on sale in the US.

Further changes brought to the latest member of the M-car lineup include downforce-inducing aerodynamic tweaks, lightweight carbon-fiber panels and wing elements, various suspension developments, more powerful brakes, larger wheels and tires and a pared-down interior. All of these features, van Meel says, have been honed in a testing and development program carried out mainly at the Nurburging in Germany in a bid to improve the new 2-door coupes performance and dynamic ability, both on the road and at the racetrack.

At the heart of the new M4 CS is the most powerful version of BMW M divisions twin-turbocharged 3.0L inline 6-cyl. gasoline engine yet. Fitted with a more free-flowing exhaust and other as-yet-unspecified modifications, it develops 454 hp and 442 lb.-ft (600 Nm) of torque, trumping the standard M4s powerplant by 29 hp and 37 lb.-ft. (50 Nm) and the competition package engine tuning available on the recently facelifted M4 by 10 hp and a similar 37 lb.-ft.

The increased reserves are channeled through a revised version of the standard M4s optional 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and electronically operated locking differential to the rear wheels. Oddly, given the new BMWs competition slant, no manual-gearbox option is offered.

The upgraded engine is allied to a range of weight-saving measures, including a roof, front splitter, small gurney spoiler atop the trunklid, diffuser element at the rear all made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic. New lightweight door trims and door pull loops are inside. Together, the M4 CS hits the scales at 3,483 lbs. (1,580 kg), 71 lbs. (32 kg) below the standard M4 equipped with the optional 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and 22 lbs. (10 kg) below the M4 Competition Package.

This provides the new BMW with a weight-to-power ratio of 7.7 lbs. (3.5 kg) per bhp. By comparison, the 3,505-lbs. (1,577-kg) competition-package-equipped M4 has a weight-to-power ratio of 7.9 lbs. (3.6 kg) per hp.

Although van Meel suggests development was focused more on overall dynamic improvement than pure straight-line speed, the M4 CS outperforms the M4 Competition Package off the line with a claimed 0-62 mph (100 kg) time of 3.9 seconds versus 4.2 seconds. Top speed is a limited 174 mph (278 km/h) also surpasses by 19 mph (30 mph) the fastest of todays M4 models.

The increased performance comes without any detriment to consumption, as the M4 CS claims combined consumption of 28.0 mpg (8.4 L/100 km).

To ensure sufficient downforce at the increased top speed, BMW M has fitted the new M4 with a more prominent front-splitter element and larger gurney lip spoiler on the trailing edge of the trunk than the standard M4. Further visual upgrades include 3.1-in. (80-mm) chromed tailpipes from the M4 Competition Package.

Chassis upgrades include a revised suspension with stiffer springs and dampers as well as larger roll bars and standard 19-in. front and 20-in. rear DTM-style wheels.

The new M4 comes equipped with the same 4-piston front and 2-piston blue-colored calipers and steel brake discs as the M4 Competition Package, although buyers can opt for 6-piston front and 4-piston calipers painted gold in combination with carbon ceramic brake discs.

Inside, the new M car receives Alcantara trim on the steering wheel and elsewhere. The M4 CS comes in colors including San Marino Blue metallic, Lime Rock Grey metallic, Alpine White, Sapphire Black metallic and Frozen Dark Blue II.

The launch of the M4 CS has raised speculation surrounding BMW Ms plans for a similar conceived version of the M2, which insiders hint could reach BMW dealerships by early 2019.
Updated with first picture from the 2017 Auto Shanghai, leaving little doubt it's the M4 CS.







Well, we all have an idea, what car this might be - right?

lol i don't think the "new" M4 is gonna come with GTS front lip and OLED taillights, that is likely just the new GTS M4 with the updated CS headlights if anything....

Unless I read your post wrong and you meant the new M4 GTS

There is no new M4 GTS coming. The GTS was a short 700 unit run (later extended to about 800 units), and all of them have been built already.

Also, he didn't say "the 'new' M4". He said a "a new M4 model". That new model is the M4 CS as already confirmed above, and it is indeed rumored to have a GTS or GTS-like front lip as well as OLED tail lights.

We probably won't get the OLEDs here, right? Isn't there some arcane DOT restriction that prevents use in the US? Maybe that was the laser headlights...I can't remember.

Yeah, that's laser headlights. And I think the regulations have been amended to allow laser headlights in some form now.

Ah I see, I was under the impression the CS model had LCI tails like the M3...

Also changing headlights / tailights is almost like a "new" facelifted version. More than just a model in my books. Like the B8.5 Audis.

But it's not a facelifted version of an existing car like a B8.5 was to a B8. It is an entirely new model in the lineup that will sit above the existing M4 (and M4 ZCP) in price. Prices are likely to start at or near $90k USD (my speculation).

Also, only the tail lights will differ from the standard M4 (assuming the OLED are included as expected). As the picture in the OP shows, the headlights will be the same as those already offered on the M4 LCI.

I see what looks like a side skirt and I don't see the GTS or GTS styled hood in the outlines, but that could be the background color being blended in.

The last sentence in this leak says "xxxx and other ACCESSORIES are ALSO made with carbon fiber materials."

Notice how they are intentionally not showing the doors. No where in this leak talks about this is a new M4 or M3 model. Just another M series car - Not M Packaged like the 5 series.

All these are creating more suspense for another few days.

The M4 CS effectively begins an exciting new chapter for BMW M. And is the first of many models to be designated CS.
