Want an upgraded BMW M4 without going the warranty-voiding tuner route? The BMW M4 CS is just for you. Featuring a tuned 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six engine that now produces 454 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, a 29hp and 37 lb-ft boost over the factory model. Other upgrades include a carbon fiber roof, trunklid spoiler, diffuser and front splitter, which contribute to a 71-pound weight saving over the base M4. You also get 6-piston front / 4-piston gold calipers with carbon ceramic brakes, stiffer springs / dampers, larger roll bars and 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels. One caveat: you’ll have to shell out over $100,000 to get your hands on one when it hits dealers next year. Continue reading for a test drive video, more pictures, and information.

“When working in conjunction with the standard dual-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission, the weight savings and extra grunt propel the M4 CS from 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in a mere 3.9 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than the M4 Competition Package. The top speed meanwhile sits at a limited 174 mph (278 km/h). BMW says that it lapped the ‘Ring in 7 min and 38 seconds, which makes it slower than the GTS (7:27.88), and just as fast as the Porsche 991 Carrera S,” reports Car Scoops.
