New BMW M4 CS will make UK debut at the Festival of Speed

The 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard will be your first chance to see two of BMW's brand new cars – the new M4 CS and the BMW XM Label – in the UK as part of First Glance presented by heycar.

The latest version of the BMW M4 CS is faster and lighter than ever. It uses the same straight-six as the regular M4, but with 2.1 bar of boost pressure power swells to 550PS (405kW) and 650Nm (479lb ft) of torque from 2,750rpm. New engine mounts and a four-wheel-drive system with improved cooling should make the CS an ideal candidate for the famous Festival of Speed Hill.

As should performance that sees this newest version of the BMW M4 get from 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds and 0-124mph in 11.1 seconds on its way to a 188mph top speed. Titanium exhausts should also deliver a satisfying sound as well.

The BMW XM Label, meanwhile, is the most powerful BMW M model ever made, producing 758PS (550kW) and a whopping 1,000Nm (738lb ft) of torque, enough to catapult this behemoth from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds. It is also the most  flamboyant version of BMW’s striking plug-in hybrid SUV with red highlights on the wheels, grille, window surrounds and on large parts of the interior. 

While the M4 CS and the XM will be flying the BMW flag in this year’s First Glance batch, the manufacturer will have plenty of other exciting things going on throughout all four days of the Festival of Speed.
