So what is a BMW M4 CS? The marque positions the new models above the regular M line-up with the corresponding Competition packages. Then come the CS special-edition models, a notch higher still. The auto brand offers the new BMW M4 CS is two different color variants, the San Marino Blue Metallic and the Lime Rock Grey Metallic. Why BMW chose to build another M4 variant is still unknown but honestly, who's complaining? The standard model is good for 431 horsepower and the competition model produces 450 hp. In the numbers game that means 460hp (up from 450hp) developed from a 3.0-litre turbo six cylinder and a 0 - 100km/h sprint time of 3.9 seconds.

While it's not yet confirmed for local release, it's likely Australia will see a few in Q4 2017 as it recently became the biggest market for M cars as a percentage of total BMW sales. The only option for transmission is the M Double Clutch Gearbox, no left foot action here. This results in a 32 kg (71 lbs) weight saving over the M4 and 10 kg (22 lbs) over the M4 Competition Package. According to BMW, their extremely light suspension played an important role in setting an impressive lap time at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Outside it looks largely similar to the standard M4, with a prominent front end, complete with cutting-edge twin LED headlights. The CS gets a model-specific front splitter, plus a rear diffuser and OLED taillights from the M4 GTS model.

Other mechanical modifications to the CS include optional 6-piston front and 4-piston gold calipers with carbon ceramic brakes, stiffer springs and dampers, larger roll bars and 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels as standard.

The unique lightweight wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi-slick tyres come as standard, but buyers can spec more road-friendly Michelin Cup Sport rubber at no extra cost. Not planning on taking the vehicle to the track much?

The interior is just as much performance-oriented. Inside the maker used compacted natural fibers for the door panels and the side trim in the rear compartment, lightweight loops, and a single-zone climate control system and bespoke audio system.

BMW say they will only be selling the M4 CS for two years, and prices start at £89k - that's £20k or so more than the regular M4, but £30k or so less than the GTS.
