BMW M has officially introduced the 2024 M3 CS, which will be coming to the market with more thrust and less bulk than ever.

BMW M has officially introduced the 2024 M3 CS, which will be coming to the market with more thrust and less bulk than ever.

The 3.0-liter inline-six turbo now makes 543 PS (536 hp / 400 kW), which is 40 hp (30 kW) more than the Competition version has and 70 hp (51 kW) above the standard M3. The torque is capped at the standard 650 Nm (479 lb-ft). The car needs 3.2 seconds for its sprint from zero to 96.6 km/h (60 mph) and doesn’t hit its speed ceiling until 302 km/h (188 mph). The transmission is eight-speed auto, and the drive is on all four wheels, but you can use the M Setup menu to redirect the entire torque to the back.

The manufacturer emphasizes that the new M3 CS produces noticeably more noise and vibration than its more mundane variants thanks to much stiffer engine mounts.

In terms of  weight, the M3 CS loses 34 kg (75 pounds) compared to the standard car thanks to a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic body panels and kit. The lightweight parts include the rear spoiler, the diffuser, the side mirror caps, the hood cover and the roof.

It is still unclear how many units will be produced, but prices in the USA will start from $119,695.
