2018 BMW M3 CS Review; Dimension, Specs, Performance, Price
New BMW M3 CS adopts components in CFRP to reduce the masses and combines an enhanced engine and with more torque. Continues with BMW M3 CS 2018 The series of Supersport lightened in the BMW home. The last arrival will be ordered from next January, the release on the market is scheduled in March, with the start of production, obviously in limited edition, only 1,200 copies. All characterized by a technical data sheet that goes beyond the best potential of the M3 with Competition Package. Starting from the engine. The six-cylinder Twin power Turbo 3-liter develops 460 horsepower, 10 more, with 50 nm of additional torque, for a total of 600 nm, between 4,000 and 5,380 rpm.
2018 BMW M3 CS Performance
The performance goes hand-in-hand and, with transmission 7-speed double clutch series, the zero-hundred is completed in 3 ″ 9, using the Launch Control. Maximum speed limited to 280 km/h, as per M Driver’s Package. The essence of 2018 BMW M3 CS goes beyond the cold numbers and is concrete in the lightening solutions, which carry the total weight to 1,585 kg. The components made in CFRP help to limit the masses at stake. The splitter, the spoiler, and the diffuser, like the roof and the engine bonnet, are all made of reinforced composite. Suffice it to think that compared to a traditional steel roof, the CFRP allows reducing the weight of 6 kg, the 25% lighter, instead, the engine bonnet.
Other interventions to contain the masses affect the suspension, with elements made of forged aluminum, taken from the M3 Competition Package. As standard, we find adaptive m suspensions, the active differential m and a different calibration of the electromechanical power steering. The whole thing is marred with tires homologated for road use, the Michelin Pilot Sports Cup 2, on wheels with a differentiated diameter, 19 and 20 inches. The less rowdy will have a set of Michelin Sport road tires.
The brakes are an accessory on request, completed by 6 and 4 piston calipers since the basic offer includes composite brakes, lighter than those made with steel discs, bites from 4 and 2 piston calipers. For a super sports sedan that does not disdain the use of the curbs, it is essential to lubricate. The magnesium oil sump is combined with an additional cover and ensures the correct lubrication of the engine up to 1.4 G of lateral or longitudinal acceleration.
Other important technical measures, on 2018 BMW M3 CS, are the adoption of a modified exhaust, with four terminals inserted in the diffuser, but above all a line with reduced back pressure; The DCT gearbox, then, has a dedicated oil cooler. As for the style, the new splitter and the Nolder on the trunk distinguish the CS from the normal M3. Even more evident is the personalization of the interiors, where is the leather upholstery Silverstone/nera and Alcantara to stand out, with the Serigrafatura of the acronym CS in the Bridge, the crown of the steering wheel in Alcantara as a good part of the central tunnel. As standard, we find all the comfort of the case, from the Professional Navigator to the automatic air conditioning and the Harman Kardon audio, up to the discounted infotainment with iDrive.
