BMW M3 CS: de scherpste vierdeurs uit München

BMW's performancedivisie M GmbH heeft grote plannen op het gebied van snaarstrakke smijtijzers. We zagen al een M4 GTS en M4 CS, laatstgenoemde is er nu ook als vierdeurs M3, met 460 pk en 600 Nm.

Aangezien de M3 CS in grote lijnen dezelfde auto is als de M4 CS houdt BMW het lekker kort. De achterwielaangedreven sedan wordt gebouwd in een oplage van 'circa 1.200 exemplaren', doet 0-100 km/u in 3,9s, en de topsnelheid is eens niet op 250, maar op 280 km/u begrensd. Onder de kap ligt de vertrouwde S55 3.0 zes-in-lijn met dubbele turbo, gekoppeld aan een 7-traps M DCT.

De motorkap, het dak, de splitter onder de voorzijde, de rand van de achterspoiler en de diffuser onder de achterzijde zijn vervaardigd uit met koolstofvezel versterkt kunststof (CFRP), of kortweg: ‘carbon’. Dit leidt tot een gewichtsbesparing van tien kilogram ten opzichte van de BMW M3 (de CS weegt 1.585 kg, volgens DIN-norm. Dit is met een voor 90% gevulde 60l-tank en 17 liter aan koelvloeistof en olie aan boord).

Ook aan het onafgeveerde gewicht is gedacht: de M3 CS heeft lichtgewicht wielen rondom de M compound remmen. Ze meten 19" voor en 20" achter, en wegen respectievelijk 9 en 10 kg per stuk. Dat is vanzelfsprekend zonder banden, en deze zijn vlezig: op de vooras gaat 265/35 ZR 19-rubber, op de aangedreven achterwielen liggen 285/30 ZR 20-schlappen.

U kunt de M3 CS voor een later te communiceren prijs bestellen vanaf januari 2018, de leveringen starten in maart 2018. Deze M3 is het tweede CS-product van BMW M, maar niet de laatste: volgens de geruchtenmachine volgt in juli 2018 een M2 CS met meer dan 400 pk.
