[VIDEO] BMW M4 CS Takes on the Nürburgring: Full Throttle!

Just unveiled, the BMW M4 CS is the stylish, less practical sibling of the M3 CS, designed for those who prefer flair. Hot off its reveal, the M4 CS has already stormed the Nürburgring, with BMW M releasing thrilling lap footage.

In this sleek video, the M4 CS roars to a top speed of 179 mph. It tears through the 12.9-mile ‘Green Hell’ in 7:21.289, just a whisper slower than the lighter M4 CSL. Yet, on everyday roads, this difference is barely noticeable.

Why choose the CS model? It kicks off with an ‘S58’ inline-six engine brimming with untapped potential. BMW didn’t tweak the internals; they just upped the turbo boost to 2.1 bar and tweaked the software, bumping the power from 503bhp to 542bhp.

Acceleration from 0-62 mph now takes only 3.4 seconds, down from 3.5 in the standard M4 Competition xDrive. All-wheel drive is standard in the UK, setting off from a hefty near-1,800kg. A 20kg drop in weight may seem slight, but every gram counts, thanks to high-tech M Carbon bucket seats and a titanium exhaust.

The power increase pairs with comprehensive chassis enhancements for sharper handling. Adjustments include new camber settings, optimized dampers, and updated anti-roll bars. These tweaks ensure precise steering and effective cornering, enhancing driver response and control.

For braking, the M4 CS features M Compound brakes with optional red or black callipers. Want more? Opt for carbon ceramic brakes in red or matte gold. The car sits on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear forged wheels, clad in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, with an even stickier Cup 2 Rs option.

The M4 CS is available in two new BMW Individual colours—Riviera Blue and Frozen Isle of Man Green—or standard shades like M Brooklyn Grey and Sapphire Black. Production of the M4 CS began in July, with UK deliveries anticipated this fall. Although expensive, starting at £117,100, it could be worthwhile for an exciting drive.
