    Engine and precision strut of the BMW M3 CS

    HIGH REVS, MAXIMUM POWER.

    The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder features superior power delivery and the striking characteristic M sound. The assembly has been further developed and delivers an outstanding 405 kW (550 hp) peak output – 30 kW (40 hp) more compared to the Competition models. The adjustments primarily involved raising the maximum charge pressure of the two mono-scroll turbochargers from 1.7 to 2.1 bar and making some model-specific tweaks to the engine management. The maximum torque is 650 Nm.

    The optional lightweight M precision strut in silver-grey serves to stabilise the vehicle and impressively improve the driving dynamics.

    BUILT FOR DRIVING DYNAMICS.

    Extensive, model-specific lightweight design measures play a major part in moulding the performance qualities and exclusive character of the BMW M3 CS. The use of components made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) both inside and out is of key importance here. Besides its carbon fibre roof, the special-edition model also uses this lightweight, high-tech material for its bonnet, front splitter, front air intakes, exterior mirror caps, rear diffuser and rear spoiler. Under its carbon shell, moreover, the BMW M3 CS features optimised components for even better driving performance: The individually tuned axle kinematics and bespoke wheel camber settings, dampers, auxiliary springs and anti-roll bars serve to optimise steering precision, transmission of lateral control forces when cornering, spring and damping response and wheel location.

    • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

      Official data on power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see https://www.bmw.com/wltp.

      For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/co2/.
