Yearly, Prime Gear options its “Velocity Week”, an occasion the place they get one of the best efficiency automobiles of the yr collectively to see how they stack up. This yr, they’re taking some extremely excited automobiles to the Knockhill circuit in Scotland and a number of the automobiles attending are merely breathtaking. Certainly one of which is the BMW M4 CS and we’ll be watching carefully to see the way it performs.
The explanation why we’ll be watching the BMW M4 CS so carefully at Velocity Week is due to the person who will likely be reviewing, and drifting, all the automobiles — Chris Harris. Not simply because Harris is enjoyable to observe, as no automotive journalist can pull the kind of angles he can in ultra-fast efficiency automobiles, however due to his feels on the BMW M4. Whereas most auto lovers bemoan the brand new BMW M3/M4, for being a bit disconnected in comparison with its predecessors, Harris has been considered one of its chief proponents. Actually, when driving the BMW M3 30 Jahre, he claimed it to be one of the best M3 the model ever made.
Nonetheless, when driving the BMW M4 GTS, the model’s most hardcore and excessive efficiency automobile, he appear to be fairly dissatisfied. He felt that it was an enormous letdown, contemplating how a lot he likes the usual M4 and the way a lot promise the GTS had. The BMW M4 CS that will likely be featured at Velocity Week kind of splits the distinction between the usual M4 and the GTS. It’s the Goldilocks Version, not too scorching, not too chilly. Good.
So we’re actually concerned with seeing what Harris thinks of the M4 CS. Particularly when contemplating the kind of competitors it is going to be up in opposition to. Among the different automobiles featured are the brand-new Ford GT, McLaren 720S and the Mercedes-AMG GT R, the latter of which Harris already deemed much better than the M4 GTS. It is going to be fascinating to see how the BMW M4 CS handles itself amongst such fierce competitors.
