  • BMW is rolling out another CS version of the M4 coupe, which will start at $124,675.

  • The 2025 BMW M4 CS uses a turbocharged 3.0-liter I6 to send 543 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

  • BMW says the 2025 BMW M4 CS will make its public debut at the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race at Laguna Seca and at the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps race.

If you thought the latest BMW M3 CS was cool but had too many doors, you’re in luck. BMW is adding another example to its long list of legendary CS models with the 2025 BMW M4 CS. Like the ’24 M3 CS, the M4 CS takes the bones of the pedestrian M4 and adds power, enhances the suspension, and takes away some weight.


Powering the M4 CS is essentially the same hopped-up S58 mill that powers the 2024 M3 CS. If you don’t speak BMW, that means a turbocharged 3.0-liter I6 to send 543 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission. That power then travels to the standard all-wheel-drive system.

For context, this bests the current M4 Competition xDrive by 20 hp, which admittedly doesn’t seem like a lot on paper.

However, this updated engine works with the rest of the M4 CS’s upgrades to help it rocket to 60 mph in only 3.2 seconds. That’s 0.2 seconds quicker than that comparable M4 Competition xDrive.

This engine also benefits from efforts to reduce mass. The M4 CS rides on a set of lightweight 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, which can be fitted with track-oriented tires at no extra cost from the factory.

Carbon fiber makes up the top, hood, and front splitter. There’s also a carbon-fiber rear diffuser, a Gurney-style rear spoiler, and carbon-fiber mirror caps. A lightweight exhaust system takes away eight pounds and brings total weight reduction to 45 pounds.

Suspending this machine is a set of electronically controlled adaptive dampers. This Adaptive M suspension, as BMW calls it, is specially tuned to the M4 CS, which also features a specially tuned steering system, anti-roll bars, and springs. The M Dynamic Mode has been revised to allow for more wheel slip under power.

Bringing the M4 CS to a stop is a set of M-Compound brakes that clamp iron rotors with calipers that are finished in red or black. The M4 CS offers carbon-ceramic brakes finished with gold brake calipers.

On the inside, the M4 CS adds a three-spoke, flat-bottom steering wheel that’s wrapped in Alcantara microsuede along with a set of M Carbon seats that are upholstered in leather.

Adding a touch of flare is a set of accent-stitched seat belts, carbon-fiber interior trim, and M4 CS sill plates. There’s still the 12.3-inch digital driver display and 14.9-inch media system screen, so don’t worry about any screen-delete weight savings.

On the outside, you’ll see features like a frameless kidney grille and more exposed carbon fiber. The M4 CS will offer four exterior finishes: Riviera blue, frozen Isle of Man green metallic, Brooklyn grey, and Black Sapphire metallic.

BMW says the M4 CS is scheduled to roll off the assembly line at Plant Dingolfing in Germany beginning this July. If you want to add one to your fleet, you’ll have to step up to the plate and hand over at least $124,675.

That doesn’t come with the optional carbon-ceramic brakes or any other extra goodies. For reference, that’s nearly $30,000 more than the M4 Competition xDrive, which starts at $89,475. Still, that’s a steep discount from the M4 CSL’s $140,895 sticker price.
