Standard equipment includes a seven-speed double clutch transmission complete with its own oil cooler that allows the auto to be driven like a pure automatic, say around town, or as a manual when the road ahead looks exciting. The new M3 CS adds even more horses. Now, the German automaker has confirmed the vehicle to be the M3 CS and has officially revealed the high-performance sedan.

M - BMW has added lightness to the 2018 M3 with its new, limited-edition CS version. The CS will take you from nought to a hundo in 3.9 seconds with a limited top speed of 280kmh.

Set to make its official debut at the LA Auto Show, the M3 CS is powered by the same 3-liter TwinPower turbo found under the bulging hood of the stock M3, but it's been tweaked to deliver 460hp instead of 450hp.

Australian buyers hoping to own an M3 CS should be in luck, with BMW Australia saying that a small number are expected to be sold locally, but official confirmation, as well as pricing and specification details, will come closer to an anticipated launch in the third quarter of 2018.

Inside, the M3 CS is a bit more luxurious. Additionally, the links and wheel carriers are all made from forged aluminium. The vehicle also comes with twin LED headlights, a new front apron, a new rear lip boot spoiler and more. These items contribute to a 10-kg weight saving over the regular M3. While underneath you'll find a "motorsport influenced" Active-M suspension set-up - complete with double-wishbones at the rear and a Competition Package setting for the springs and dampers - and a specially tuned M Sport exhaust system.

Other features include BMW Individual Shadow Line high gloss trim and darkened rear taillights, where the latter aren't of the OLED (organic light emitting diode) variety like on the M4 CS. Customers who don't want white can also choose from San Marino Blue Metallic, Lime Rock Grey Metallic, Frozen Dark Blue II Metallic or Black Sapphire Metallic.

It sits on semi-slick Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres that are fitted to 19-inch wheels on the front and 20-inch rims on the back for optimum road and track grip. Seats and door panels are finished in two-tone leather and Alcantara, while the vehicle also gets BMW's top specification infotainment and a Harman Kardon sound system.
