German sports car maker Porsche is making its presence the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show felt further by unveiling to the global public its new Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport. If you’re familiar with the street-legal yet track-focused outgoing 991-generation of the 911 GT2 RS, then the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport is basically its racing version.
As racing version, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can only be driven on the tracks, which means that this race car is the carmaker’s newest attempt to lure in racing enthusiasts. The 911 GT2 RS Clubsport can be raced at clubsport-style events, including those organized by Porsche Club of America, as well as at a possible future racing series organized by SRO.
The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport shouldn’t be mistaken for the no-cost optional Club Sport package offered for the 911 GT2 RS in Europe, but not in the United States. There are a number of differences, but we would focus only on the Clubsport model, not the package.Read the entire article 2018 LA Auto Show: Porsche unveils track-only 911 GT2 RS Clubsport race version
There’s currently no one faster than Marc Marquez in the MotoGP World Championship qualifiers. For now, the Spanish world champion riding for the Repsol Honda team is loving the view as he is ahead of the pack. Whether during qualifiers or the actual race, Marquez is a dominant force in MotoGP. Such dominance has particularly earned him a place in the annual BMW M Award, giving him another key to a brand new BMW M4 CS.
BMW has been handling out cars to top MotoGP qualifiers since 2003 through the BMW M Award. Actually, the 2017 BMW M Award is considered as the 15th edition of MotoGP’s Best Qualifier award, which honors the rider who manage to provide the strongest overall performance in the one-season qualifying sessions. This year, Marquez earned a total of 343 points to secure the M Awards, around 86 points ahead of his closest rival.
For Marquez, winning the BMW M Award is nothing new. In fact, this year is the fifth time he won the prestigious award, which means he already has keys to five BMW M cars. Essentially, Marquez secured a third of the total BMW M Award (15) handed out to MotoGP riders. Other recipients of the BMW M Award include Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner (three awards each), Jorge Lorenzo (two awards), Sete Gibernau and Nicky Hayden. These MotoGP riders also received a car from BMW M for topping the season qualifiers.Read the entire article Marc Marquez gets a new BMW M4 CS after winning 2017 MotoGP’s Best Qualifier award
BMW has given birth to another high-performance model that essentially brings the dynamism, expressiveness, practicality and on-the-road superiority into a whole new level – the new BMW M3 (F80) CS.
With the four-door BMW M4 CS initially posting resounding success, it was inevitable that BMW would create a second model having the same designation. Just like the M4 CS, the new four-door M3 CS is lighter and faster than the model (M3) from which it was derived.
As the first-ever BMW M3 CS special-edition model, there is a need to make sure that its appearance promptly conveys its performance capabilities. Its three-dimensionally contoured front end is defined by a slender kidney grille flanked by the twin headlight units featuring state-of-the-art LED technology. The three-part front apron of the new M3 CS underscores its dynamic nature while providing the needed efficient cooling for both the powerful twin-turbo six-cylinder engine and the powerful braking system.Read the entire article First-ever BMW M3 CS is lighter and more powerful than regular model
If you are a huge fan of the hardcore GTS version, you probably know that the closest you could get to that model is the upgraded model of the M4 -- the BMW M4 CS that has a 460 horsepower (343-kilowatt) engine capable of going from 0-62 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds. But guess what? It seems like the four-door M3 will be getting the same treatment sometime soon.
Well, the German company has been making use of their “CS” trademark filings. BMW has filed “CS” names with trademarks that range from “M1 CS” to “M8 CS” - that is a lot if you think about it. This is probably their strategy to keep up with the growing lineup of Mercedes-AMG vehicles.
In fact, it was stated by Bimmer Today, a German publication, that the new M3 (F80) CS will be the most powerful M3 of all time, and it is scheduled to come out next year. It will be getting 460 horsepower (343 kilowatts) from the same 3.0-liter biturbo six-cylinder engine, as that of the M4 CS. According to some rumours, the engine will be paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.Read the entire article BMW M3 (F80) CS with 460 hp will arrive in 2018
Now, it is official. The BMW M4 CS (Club Sport) is the real thing. Since BMW has already ended the production of the track-focused M4 GTS, the M4 CS – for now – is the new top-of-the-range model of the BMW 4 Series. While BMW unveiled a BMW M4 CS in Spain a year ago, this was only a project of BMW Spain, and not created by BMW M GmbH.
This Spanish version was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Then in January this year, a slightly camouflaged M4 test mule was spotted. We were sure it isn’t the M4 GTS, since its production has already ended. However, this test mule is laden with features from the M4 GTS like its bonnet. It also comes with some cosmetic tweaks from the recent Life Cycle Impulse of the BMW 4 Series.
Then, an M4 CS looking similar to the test mule in Sweden was seen doing a commercial shoot in California with BMW’s factory DTM driver Augusto Farfus Jr. Apparently, this is the real M4 CS that BMW is now introducing officially to the global market.Read the entire article 2018 BMW M4 CS debuts with 460 hp and 3.9-second 0-62 mph sprint time
Will there be a BMW M4 CS? Apparently, there is a Club Sport version of the BMWM4 after it was sighted in California doing a shoot for a new commercial ad, courtesy of a member of the Bimmer Post forum.
People may be wondering if this is the same vehicle that was unveiled nearly a year ago in Spain. No, it isn’t. Yes, BMW did unfurl a BMW M4 CS in Spain but it wasn’t what we expected. As members of the Bimmer Post forum pointed out, the Spanish BMW M4 CS was only a project of BMW Spain, and it was not created by BMW M GmbH. The guys from the forum also noted that Spanish BMW M4 CS was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Sorry to burst your M4 CS bubbles.
As far as we know, BMW only produced only 803 units of the M4 GTS, which is considered as its meanest and fastest sports car. Essentially a power-up evolution of the M4 coupe, the BMW M4 GTS is one of BMW’s most track-ready cars, thanks to the M technologies applied on its powertrain, chassis and lightweight construction. Sporting an iconic CS moniker, the M4 CS is basically a toned down and “civilized” version of the GTS, serving as a middle child between the standard M4 and the M4 GTS. This is basically why the M4 CS should possess a number of features and elements from the M4 GTS. However, as a civilized version, the M4 CS won’t be as powerful and as extreme as the M4 GTS.Read the entire article New BMW M4 CS is spotted in a commercial shoot with Augusto Farfus in California
Volkswagen last April brought its GTI Clubsport S to Nordschleife and finished with a 7:47.21 lap time -- beating Honda Civic Type R’s front wheel drive track record by 1.4 seconds. Earlier this year, the brand had broken the record for a production front-wheel-drive car. But VW pushes its own boundaries once more by bringing back the same GTI Clubsport S for another round at the “Green Hell”.
The record-breaking stunt happened last 26th of October and took an impressive 7:47.19 seconds. Considering its 8º C and 46ºF climate, VW had no problem keeping the vehicle’s tyres and engine in tip-top shape. But then the Clubsport S as we all know is not your average GTI.
Equipped with a 310 hp 2.0 litre turbo four engine, the VW Golf’s back seats were replaced by a lightweight battery with sub-frame made of aluminium. All these including the pair of race seats in lightweight materials help reduce its curb weight by as much as 66lbs.Read the entire article VW Golf GTI Clubsport S beats own record on Nurburgring
It was in May of this year when BMW unveiled that the M4 Competition Sport during the 2016 Madrid International Auto Show. Through this model, the brand hoped to showcase a M4 variant that was geared for running in the tracks. Thus while weight was lowered, the power was increased, and with it came some improvements on the aerodynamics.
Many car enthusiasts are claiming that there is a possibility that in the near future, BMW will put enhancements as well on the other models. Proof of this is the revelation that the brand has filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization trademarks for the M1 CS and up to M8 CS. As such, it means that the likelihood of the CS name making a comeback is possible considering that it was seen last on certain hardcore models like the M3.
However for those familiar with the world of intellectual property, a company that files for a trademark does not necessarily mean that it will be coming out with an actual product. It can be seen as a way to prevent other companies from using that particular name. Under the context of BMW, CS has long been associated with Coupe Sport though it is just as possible that it can mean Club Sport.Read the entire article BMW’s CS trademark applications raise speculations! M4 CS, M8 CS on their way?
A new version of the classy but ferocious middle child of the M4 series is set for release; unfortunately, it will only be available in Spain. The BMW M4 series is an irony within itself because it can be a laidback and comfortable cruiser for everyday use while it can also be a vicious opponent in the race track. There are two variants of the M4, the Standard M4 and the M4 GTS.
While there is an unlimited supply of the $65,000 Standard M4, there are only 700 units of the M4 GTS which is sold for $161,972. See the price gap between the two? Well, for many, the GTS being a limited-edition track beast is not enough reason for the outrageous disparity between the prices. So how does BMW respond to this ridiculous disparity? Simple. Put something in between the standard M4 and the GTS. And what do we get? Of course a version somewhere in between the sleek and chill standard M4 and the ferocious track beast that is the GTS.
Just recently, BMW revealed the newest M4 family member. Sporting an iconic CS or “Club Sport” moniker, the M4 CS is basically a toned down and “civilized” version of the GTS. Serving as a middle child of the standard M4 and the GTS, the M4 CS will be sold for €132,900 or approximately $150,000.Read the entire article New BMW M4 CS (Clubsport) to be released only in Spain
At the Worthersee Tour 2015, Audi unveiled the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept, a vehicle that takes its inspiration from the legendary Audi 90 IMSA GTO of the late 1980s. According to the German manufacturer, the vehicle is powered by a 2.5-liter TFSI five-cylinder petrol engine that produces 600 hp (441 kW) and 650 Nm (479.4 lb-ft) of torque.
All that power is transferred via a manual six-speed transmission and the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system, that can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, while top speed is 310 km/h (192.6 mph).
Thanks to the electrically driven compressor, the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Concept is able to cover up to 16 meters (52.5 ft) within the first 2.5 seconds, 6 meters (19.7 ft) more than a comparable car without this innovation.Read the entire article Audi brings the TT Clubsport Turbo Concept at Worthersee Tour 2015
Manhart officially introduced the MH2 Clubsport based on the BMW M235i Coupe. Just like the standard M235i Coupe, the Manhart MH2 Clubsport uses the 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Technology that was boosted from 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque to an impressive 430 hp (316 kW) and 592 Nm (436 lb-ft) of torque.
The new power output was obtained thanks to a bigger charging air intercooler, a new exhaust system with Manhart downpipe and 200-cell sports catalyzers. Manhart also eliminated the top speed limitation and prepared and the new vehicle achieves an impressive top speed of 300 km/h or 186 mph.
Besides the two round 90 mm stainless steel tailpipes, Manhart added a reinforced sports clutch that delivers the power of the engine to the rear wheels through the six-speed transmission. In addition, there is a differential lock on demand, but also a new Club sport coilover kit from kW.Read the entire article Manhart MH2 Clubsport based on BMW M235i Coupe
At the 2014 Worthersee Meeting in Reifniz (Karten) from May 28-31, Audi will bring the A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept. If you ask us, this new concept car actually previews the new Audi RS3 Sedan, but for the moment we don’t have any official details. The dramatic new A3 Clubsport Quattro Concept is based on the S3 Sedan but comes with a 2.5-liter TFSI engine found on the RS Q3.
The engine delivers an impressive 525 hp (386 kW) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque, available between 2,300 and 6,000 rpm.

Yesterday we’ve told you that McLaren is currently working on a hardcore version of the 650S, but it appears that British carmaker isn’t the only company, which is developing such vehicles. According to AutoExpress, Jaguar is also considering a lightweight version of the F-Type Coupe. Lighter, faster and more extreme than the standard version, the Club Sport version of the F-Type Coupe will shed around 200 kg, which means it could weigh around 1,465 kg.
As a result, it could sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 3.5 seconds, meaning that the car will enter the supercar territory. As expected, the F-Type Club Sport will be lighter thanks to a new carbon fiber aerodynamic kit, but also a more austere interior, as well as carbon-fiber seats and carbon-fiber panels.
For those who don’t know, Jaguar has quite a history of famous lightweight versions of its historical production vehicles, such as the C-Type and E-Type. F-Type Programme Director Russ Varney told Auto Express that a lightweight, harder version of the F-Type Coupe is on Jaguar’s list.Read the entire article Jaguar planning a Club Sport version of the F-Type Coupe
