BMW brought the 2018 M3 CS sedan to the LA auto show this week and the car is impressive.

The BMW M3 CS has many lightweight components. This drops the vehicle weight and centre of gravity, while simultaneously boosting dynamics and agility. Elementary components like the engine bonnet, front spoiler, rear spoiler and rear diffuser and even the roof are made of light and highly-robust carbon-fibre (CFRP).

Weight-reducing measures were also adopted in the interior: the centre console weighs about 30 percent less in comparison to the series standard component. Plus, the weight-optimised M sport seats for the driver and the passenger are not only upholstered in the exclusive BMW Individual full leather Bicolour Silverstone/Black, but also deliver excellent comfort and hold in any driving situation. Perfect conditions for the CS's breathtaking performance.

The car is equipped with BMW's M Drive, the electromechanical steering M Servotronic and an M double-clutch transmission with an especially sporty design therefore ensure outstanding performance.

In addition the damper control can be ideally adjusted via the specially tuned Adaptive M suspension and its three different driving modes. According to requirements and route characteristics – for a maximum of agility, steering precision and everyday utility.

BMW product manager Sebastian Maier said that the M3 CS will start at $97,400 in the U.S.
