BMW is bringing back the CS badging for a new, limited-edition M3. With it comes refined software and chassis calibrations, a retuned suspension setup, and an aggressively tuned exhaust note. Standard features for the CS include e-assisted power steering, Active M differential, and a sophisticated stability-control system, while carbon-ceramic brakes are optional. There’re also a few extra bells and whistles for the interior and more carbon fiber bits for the exterior
But despite these enhancements, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is still the quickest production sedan around the Nürburgring.
In the description of a recently published ad by the BMW M YouTube channel, the automaker discloses that the M3 CS is capable of lapping the ‘ring in 7:38, which is 6-seconds slower than the 7:32 record set by the Giulia Quadrifoglio.
There is one area where the M3 CS outshines the Giulia Quadrifoglio, and that’s exclusivity, as only 550 units will be made sold here in the states.
