THE ALL-NEW BMW M3 CS
BMW M GmbH will maintain its focus on adding highly appealing special-edition models to its product range in 2023.
The all-new BMW M3 CS brings even greater intensity to the racing allure that marks out the company’s successful high-performance models for the premium midsize segment. This gives the BMW M3 CS a unique character profile and the ability to serve up the undiluted M feeling that excites and enthralls over every mile on the road as well as on the track.
The powertrain concept for the new BMW M3 CS teams a 550 hp six- cylinder in-line engine with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and the M xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system. This setup produces a 0 to 100 km/h time of 3.4 seconds. The BMW M3 CS comes with the M Driver’s Package as standard and has an electronically limited top speed of 302 km/h. The new BMW M3 CS will be built in a limited run at BMW Group Plant Munich from March 2023, with its phased launch getting underway the same month.
More power, less weight, compelling performance.
A more power/less weight formula instils the new BMW M3 CS with compelling performance qualities. It draws its power from a specially upgraded version of the high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology developed for the BMW M3 and BMW M4 models. The engine under the bonnet of the new BMW M3 CS therefore also boasts a wealth of technological details derived directly from the race-car unit. Its crankcase has a sleeve-free, closed-deck construction and is extremely rigid, making it suitable for very high combustion pressures. Its cylinder head has a 3D-printed core, allowing the coolant ducts to be routed in an optimum arrangement for temperature management that would be impossible to achieve using conventional metal casting methods. The system of oil supply is designed to handle the specific challenges of track use, as is the cooling system.
