BMW Australia will complement its high-performance BMW M portfolio with launch of the all-new BMW M4 CS later this year.
The new addition to the line-up combines intelligent lightweight construction with extensive use of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), increased engine output, bespoke chassis setup, exclusive design features and a precision-honed specification to deliver an exhilarating performance experience for both road and track and in all weathers.

The special edition is powered by an uprated version of the high-revving six-cylinder in-line engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology developed for the BMW M3 and BMW M4 range.

Racing technology provides the foundations for the extraordinary potential of the six-cylinder in-line engine, which produces maximum output of 405kW from under the bonnet of the new BMW M4 CS.

The engine in the new BMW M4 CS puts its peak torque of 650Nm on tap from just 2,750 rpm up to 5,950 rpm. It develops maximum output at 6,250 rpm and has a 7,200 rpm red line.

The engine’s drive torque is relayed to all four wheels of the new BMW M4 CS via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. This is operated using either the M-specific gear selector lever on the centre console or the carbon-fibre shift paddles on the steering wheel.

Its track credentials were confirmed during testing at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit with an official recorded time of 7 minutes 21.989 seconds for the full, 20.832-kilometre lap.

The M-specific Setup button on the centre console enables direct access to the settings options for the engine, chassis, steering, braking system and M xDrive. 

The BMW M4 CS will be produced alongside the other BMW M4 variants at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing from July this year, with customer deliveries commencing here in Q4.
BMW Australia has confirmed 50 examples of the BMW M4 CS for the local market, a number that reflects Australia’s standing as one of the world’s leading markets for BMW M in the ratio of performance cars sold in the overall model mix.

Due in the 4th quarter of 2024, the new BMW M4 CS is priced at $254,900 plus on-road costs.
