When BMW unveiled the M3 Touring more than a year ago, many people's dreams came true. People had been wishing for a Touring version of the M3 for a long time. Unfortunately, BMW never made this BMW, except for a few unique pieces. However, the power of electric cars is growing, and BMW had to create a Touring version of the M3 before the end of the era for combustion engines.
The result of the M3 Touring is breathtaking. The car is selling like hotcakes, and BMW even decided to create a slightly more extreme variant of the M3 and the M3 Touring. Now, the first example without camouflage has been seen. Snelweggespotnl had the luck to be the first to spot it on the highway.
The powertrain concept for the new BMW M3 CS Touring combines a 405 kW/550 PS inline-six engine with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and the intelligent all-wheel-drive M xDrive. Together, they provide acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and outstanding driving performance that you can enjoy from any of the four seats.
Furthermore, a specially designed engine suspension with increased spring rates ensures an extremely stiff connection between the power unit and the vehicle structure. Pressing the gas pedal, therefore, leads to even sharper engine response and direct power transmission to the drivetrain. The engine of the new BMW M3 CS Touring delivers its maximum torque of 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) already at 2,750 rpm and maintains it until 5,950 rpm. The maximum power is at 6,250 rpm, and the redline is at 7,200 rpm.
