    The abovementioned powertrain also packs a wealth of technological details derived directly from the BMW M4 GT3 race-car unit. For example, its crankcase has a sleeve-free, closed-deck construction and is extremely rigid, making it suitable for very high combustion pressures. Additionally, its engine features weight-saving cylinder bores with a wire-arc sprayed iron coating to reduce frictional losses.

    Further, the mill is built with a forged lightweight crankshaft that aids power build-up with its exceptionally high torsional resistance while also feeding the engine’s high revolutions. Also, its cylinder head has a 3D-printed core, allowing the coolant ducts to be routed in an optimum arrangement for temperature management that would be impossible to achieve using conventional metal casting methods.

    Finally, the oil supply system — like the cooling system — was designed to handle the specific challenges of track use.

    Not only does the all-new BMW M3 CS have a powerful engine but it also has a finely-tuned chassis. BMW revealed that the chassis was tuned specifically to match the M3 CS’ engine performance.

    The chassis is made with individually tuned axle kinematics and bespoke wheel camber settings, dampers, auxiliary springs, and anti-roll bars to optimize steering precision, transmission of lateral control forces when cornering, spring and damping response, and wheel location.

    Other model-specific systems featured in the BMW M3 CS include electronically controlled dampers of the adaptive M suspension, the electromechanical M Servotronic steering with variable ratio, and the integrated braking system.

    For its brakes, BMW equipped the M3 CS with M Compound brakes with brake calipers painted in either Red or Black. Optionally available are M Carbon ceramic brakes with calipers are available in either matt Gold or Red.

    Its power and precision are reflected in the M3 CS’ design. Its exterior is bedecked with unique appointments like exposed carbon-fiber surfaces on the roof, two indents chiseled into the hood, the front splitter, front air intakes, M exterior mirror caps, rear spoiler and rear apron, as well as Black side skirts and M gills.
