BMW works on a new BMW G80 M3 CS model

Since the Bavarians add the M Performance cars to the tally, owners can now get more M badges on more cars drivers could ever dream of. However, while some dismiss such moves as marketing stunts, there are still genuine M cars on offer today. We can also expect more M cars to come. According to some sources, BMW is now working on a CS version of the current G80 M3.

BMW works on a new BMW G80 M3 CS model

It is not shocking as the German automaker announces a few years back that it plans to make CS badges more common than before. Recently, the previous generation BMW F80 M3 and F82 M4 are out in the market in CS guises. Then, the M2 CS follows, and now the BMW M5 CS is also in the game. Therefore, bringing back the Competition Sport versions is not that surprising.

There are no details for now, but we can use previous and current sources to what the BMW G80 M3 CS can offer. The coming M3 CS may come with less weight. With the much heavier all-wheel-drive M3 heavier than the older model, that is great news. Yet, will the M3 CS be in the rear-wheel-drive setup too? We will never know, and it is too early to say. Even so, many fans and enthusiasts would be happy and thrilled to see it in an RWD and a manual gearbox.

It is unlikely to happen, and BMW will look for other ways to reduce weight from the vehicle. We’ll see a lot of carbon fiber used, as well as some innovative new solutions. The power will also increase from the Competition model’s 510 PS (503 horsepower) with a 10-20 horsepower increase. It would be sufficient in conjunction with the lighter weight and fine-tuned chassis/suspension. Pricing would most likely exceed $100,000, and the CS will have a limited production cycle once it is released.
