Marc Marquez gets a new BMW M4 CS after winning 2017 MotoGP’s Best Qualifier award

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.

First-ever BMW M3 CS is lighter and more powerful than regular model

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.

Rumored BMW M2 CS could be powered by S55 engine used in M4

Sooner or later, we might find German premium carmaker BMW offering a high-performance version of the M2. This comes as BMW is reportedly working on a more hardcore version of the M2, which could be named as the BMW M2 CS (most likely) or M2 Competition.

According to various reports, the new BMW M2 CS could be on its way next year, possibly in January 2018. It could be powered by the same engine that powers the BMW M3 and the BMW M4. This engine -- codenamed as the S55 – is a twin-turbo straight-six engine that in the BMW M4 delivers 425 hp (431 PS) of max output available between 5,500 rpm and 7,300 rpm, as well as 406 lb.-ft. (550 Nm) of peak torque available between 1,850 rpm and 5,500 rpm. This engine is powerful enough to allow the M4 sprinting from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in only 4.1 seconds with a standard six-speed manual transmission or in just 3.9 seconds with the M-DCT transmission.

Since the BMW M2 is smaller and lighter than the M4, such power could mean its acceleration times are quicker. As to whether the S55 engine of the M4 could fit into the engine bay of the M2, it has been determined that it could. In fact, several tuners in Germany have already managed to install this straight-six engine into the M2. Thus, it wouldn’t be impossible for BMW to get this powerful engine into the M2 and thereby give birth to the new BMW M2 CS.

2018 BMW M4 CS shows up in Lime Rock Grey Metallic color

Here it comes, the much-awaited exclusive limited-run special-edition model of the new BMW M4. Filling the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the track-focused BMW M4 GTS, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS is the latest of its successful M special editions.

This limited edition M4 model is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine, which thanks to the M TwinPower Turbo technology, could deliver 338 kW (460 hp) of max output at 6,250 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available between 4,000 rpm and 5,380 rpm. Compared to the BMW M4 with Competition Package, the new M4 CS delivers more power with its additional 10 hp of output and 50 Nm (37 lb.-ft.) of torque.

With this level of power on hand, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS could dash from zero to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, on the way to reaching an electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Power is sent to the wheels from the engine -- as standard -- through a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic.
