BMW M3 CS: Even More Sporty
DOUBLE FAILURE - After the M4, the special CS version also comes on the BMW M3 sedan and brings with it the same improvements as the coupe: the six-cylinder 3.0 engine power increases to 460 hp (29 more than the M3 base), the bodywork assumes a more decisive look and changes in the layout and suspensions. The BMW M3 CS is for high-performance sedan fans looking for a car that can be used every day, but can not disfigure it in track racing: the BMW M3 CS has a more extreme character than the M3 and of its enhanced version, the M3 Competition, but does not give up the four doors and the generous trunk of the 3 Series (on which it is based).
BRUCIANTI PARTNERS - The BMW M3 CS was prepared by the BMW M department, which worked to cut the weights and used carbon fiber for the front hood, lighter than 25% compared to that fitted on the normal M3. The technicians wanted to lower the center of gravity of the car and thus improve reactivity to the controls. On the rear hood, there is a new carbon fiber spoiler with aerodynamic function, according to BMW, which also boosted the bi-turbo engine and increased the torque: the 600 Nm should improve the elasticity and response to the gas controls. The gearbox is the automatic dual-clutch M DCT 7-speed clutch, equipped with the guncotton start function, which, once activated, accelerates the BMW M3 CS from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds. The maximum declared speed is 280 km / h.
BRAKE BRAKES - The BMW M3 CS is standard. It also adopts a new exhaust system, a revised engine oil pump to improve the car's performance on the track and features already provided on the BMW M3, such as electronic suspension, steering wheel control system and selector with different driving modes: By combining the different settings you can get a more "soft" car to drive every day or more extreme to use on the track. The springs and shock absorbers are specific to the model, which uses lighter components for suspensions, light 19 and 20-inch forged wheels, and composite (brakes) braking system. The impression of sportiness is enhanced by the extra air intakes on the fascia.
