Filling the space between the racetrack experience and soul-stirring road performance, the new BMW M4 CS celebrates racing passion with lightweight design elements for every day driving comfort.

With an increased engine output of 550 hp, model-specific chassis tuning and minimised weight – helped by numerous components made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) – the BMW M4 CS (fuel consumption, combined 27.7 mpg; CO2 emissions combined: 232 g/km in the WLTP cycle, CO2 class: G) bring an extra edge to the BMW M4 Coupé vehicle concept of four seats, everyday practicality, advanced equipment and exclusive design features.

The new BMW M4 CS is offered in two new BMW Individual paint finishes; Riviera Blue solid and Frozen Isle of Man Green metallic, while exposed carbon fibre for the roof, bonnet indents, front splitter, front air intakes, M exterior mirror caps, rear spoiler and rear apron highlight the models distinctive character. Together with the Black side skirts and M gills, the CFRP elements provide a stunning contrast against the bold new paint finishes. The new BMW M4 CS can also be specified in M Brooklyn Grey metallic and Sapphire Black metallic.

The vehicle’s front-end sports a weight-saving, frameless BMW kidney grille that was designed especially for this mode, including red contour lines and the “M4 CS” badging on the upper of the two horizontal grille bars. Both model badge at the front and its counterpart on the boot lid have black surfaces with a red border.

Eye-catching headlights add another flourish to the front end of the new BMW M4 CS. Their sculptural light icons illuminate yellow instead of white – both during the Welcome Light Animation and while low beam or high beam is switched on – while the rear lights of the BMW M4 CS make a visual statement with their striking appearance during the hours of darkness. As well as generating a powerful radiance, their Laserlight technology is marked out by intricate fibre optic bundles inside the light units, which have a “free-floating” appearance and are illuminated by a laser diode. The result is a prominent 3D effect which was first seen in the BMW M4 CSL high-performance special edition and now brings an exclusive aesthetic to the BMW M4 CS.

The cockpit of the BMW M4 CS focuses solely on delivering an exhilarating driving experience, by blending its distinct racing aura with comfort features for everyday driving. The standard M Alcantara steering wheel in three-spoke design with a flat-bottomed rim offers a perfect combination of secure grip for dynamic driving manoeuvres and impressive comfort on longer journeys. Its red centre marker and CFRP shift paddles add an authentic racing flavour to the cockpit. The standard M Carbon bucket seats in a model-specific design also fuse racing-car feel and long-distance comfort to exceptional effect. Fully electric and heated, they feature integral head restraints and an illuminated model badge.

The M Carbon bucket seats in the BMW M4 CS are upholstered in Merino leather and come in an exclusive design with a Black/Red colour scheme and distinctive contrast stitching. This bi-colour finish is carried over into the rear compartment of the high-performance sports car and both the door panels in the front and the rear side panelling are trimmed entirely in Black leather. Red “CS” lettering on the centre console, M seat belts with contrast stitching in the BMW M GmbH colours, an Anthracite-coloured headliner, interior trim strips in Carbon Fibre finish and door sill plates with the inscription “M4 CS” all add to the exclusive ambience inside the car.

Production of the new BMW M4 CS will start in July 2024 at BMW Group Plant Dingolfing, with order books opening in late May. The BMW M4 CS is priced from £117,100 RRP with first deliveries in the UK arriving in Autumn 2024.
