Normally, such a limited-run special edition wouldn’t be a problem, but in this case, the 2016 BMW M4 ‘CS’ does happen to be quite the head-turner, and deeply missed.
There is some German engineering witchcraft going on underneath the body too, though. BMW says the car’s chassis, suspension damping, differential, and stability control systems have all been tuned and tweaked. The car also boasts a new sports exhaust package for added growl, new seats for better lateral support, and comes equipped only with BMW’s seven-speed dual clutch automatic.
The halfway-point recipe seems to have worked as well. The M4 Competition Sport’s dash to 60 mph drops by a hair (4.0 seconds) while its top speed is now de-limited from 155 mph to 174 mph. Speedy. By comparison, the BMW M4 GTS launches to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and onto 189 mph at full chat.
Jealous yet? Whereas the standard BMW M4 retails for €92,100 abroad and the M4 GTS asks €166,900, the Spain-only M4 Competition Sport will go for €132,900. Exterior color options are slim though; buyers can opt for either Brilliant White (seen here), San Marino Blue, or Jerez Black.
