BMW launches hardcore, limited-edition M3 CS

In BMW-speak, CS means less weight, more power, and fettled chassis and steering settings to create some of the brand's most hardcore cars. So petrolheads will be pleased to know the Bavarian brand has applied this recipe to another car – the M3 saloon, to create the BMW M3 CS.

The CS receives a number of upgrades over the standard car, with a honed version of the chassis fitted to the M3 with Competition Pack. The engine has also been given a slight boost, with around 10 extra horsepower bringing the total to an impressive 454bhp thanks to a more free-flowing exhaust system.
