New BMW M4 CS Is The GTS’ More Civilized Sibling

Find BMW’s M4 GTS a bit too hardcore for your liking? Then perhaps BMW can interest you in their new M4 CS that fills the gap between the GTS and the standard M4 – but there’s a catch; it’s only available in Spain.

While BMW is offering the M4 GTS in 700 units worldwide, its M4 CS sibling will be limited to just 60 numbered examples, all earmarked for Spain, with the car to go on sale at the end of spring.

“This is a more civilized version of the exclusive BMW M4 GTS, thanks to its versatility and rear seats incorporating compounds similar to BMW M4 Coupe,” explains the Bavarian carmaker.

Think of it as more track capable than the standard M4, but more practical and useable on a daily basis than the M4 GTS.

Aside from regaining the rear seats, the M4 CS will split the difference in weight loss (80kg / 176lbs) and power gains (68hp / 69PS) between the regular model (425hp /431PS) and the GTS (493hp / 500PS). As with the latter, the CS’ fettled 3.0-liter straight-six will be paired exclusively to a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.

According to BMW, the increase in power and performance leads to an increased top speed limit of 280km/h (174mph), compared to the M4’s electronically restricted 250km/h (155mph) and the M4 GTS’ 305km/h (190mph).

In addition to more grunt under the hood, the CS will get a host of chassis improvements, exterior elements in CFRP (carbon fiber), including a not so subtle rear wing, 20-inch alloy wheels in the same design as the GTS but in pure silver instead of the kitschy bronze shade, and unique front sport seats.

A full introduction is expected within the next few weeks.
