BMW launches powerful and lightweight M4 CS

On April 19, German luxury automaker BMW introduced its M4 CS at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show in China.

Based on the BMW 4 Series Coupe’s high-performance M4 Coupe, the M4 CS offers even greater power. The “CS” or “Club Sport” has been tuned for driving on circuits as well.

In addition, the M4 CS features an extremely light cargo weight of 1,580kg as the bonnet, roof, spoiler lip and diffuser are all made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP).

The transmission is a seven-speed dual-clutch system. The M4 CS offers outstanding performance with acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and speeds of up to 280km/h (due to speed limiter).
