BMW Australia has cut almost $22,000 from the sticker price of its M4 CS Coupe.
Since the BMW M4 GTS sold out, the M4 CS is the lightest, most powerful, iteration of the 4-Series Coupe you can buy in Australia. For fans of Bavarian-bred performance cars, the CS is now the king of BMW showrooms.
And now BMW Australia wants to help said fans put a CS in their driveway. People who have already pre-ordered a CS, along with future customers, will now be able to snatch one up for $189,900 – a nearly $22K discount on the old $211,610 price.
BMW has also ditched the ‘standard’ M4 from its line-up, leaving the manual Pure edition as the entry model at $139,900.
The cheapest automatic M4 is the Competition, costing $156,710, offering a seven-speed DCT transmission in the place of the Pure’s six-speed three pedal manual.
All M4 variants are powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight-six engine, with the Pure and Competition making 331kW/550Nm. The CS gets a 7kW/50Nm boost, along with plenty of weight reduction to improve its performance.
The M4 CS will sprint to 100km/h from a standstill in 3.9 secs, while stopping performance from 100-0km/h is accomplished in the same time. The Pure and Competition will complete 0-100km/h a tenth of a second slower than the CS.
“We have been working hard behind the scenes to deliver strong pricing for our M vehicles,” BMW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner, said.
“By introducing the M4 Pure local editions, we have made this core M car more accessible than ever.
“In addition, internal and customer feedback has allowed us to re-examine the flagship M4 CS pricing.
“This new M pricing structure is a sensational early Christmas present for BMW M customers.”
